Evening my friends. I have a question in regards to the mobo of the Slimline s5-1114, (Joshua H61). I'm unable to find documentation for it but I'm interested in making use of this slot. I attempted to add a half mini sata drive however the PC did not read the accessory. I'm wondering if its able to be used in the least for a wifi adapter, or if there's another way to make the SATA ssd work.
Solved! Go to Solution.

I see. I found this one on Amazon, however it also has bluetooth capability. Any chance that you know if I can also enable bluetooth through this card?

Yes, that slot should be wired to support Bluetooth.
What are you going to do for the two antenna wires you need for the card to get reception?
Does the Intel card come with an antenna wire kit and external antenna mounting bracket?
I did a cursory search on the internet, and I don't see any HMC Wi-Fi cards that come with antenna kits.
On the HP PC's that came with built in Wi-Fi antenna wires and transceivers were included inside the case.
If not, then you won't be able to install a Wi-Fi adapter in the slot.

You're very welcome.
Take a look at your PC's motherboard.
I have an eBay link with a decent picture below.
If your PC has a free PCIe x1 slot (one of the 3 smaller black slots) on the motherboard, you can install a PCie x1 Wi-Fi card with Bluetooth.
Here's how you can get the Bluetooth to work from a PCIe x1 Wi-Fi adapter.
Look at the picture in the link above.
I see a header that appears to be 9-pins that is located to the right of the two blue SATA ports.
If that is what it is, that is where you connect the Bluetooth cable that you connect to the back of the Wi-Fi card adapter.
The kit should include the cable.
