How many internal SATA hard drives can be run in a Pavilion Elite 9250t?
I'm not worried about the power supply since one of the drives will be solid state. Does the machine have enough internal SATA ports to run 3 hard drives without disconnecting the optical drive?

These are the motherboard specifications. Look in the lower right hand corner; two sata ports are vertical and two sata ports are horizontal.
Yes you could run three hard drives. You could install the third drive using a 5.25 to 2.5 (3.5) bracket in the open optical bay.
