HP Slim Desktop PC S01-aF0000a (8QQ65AV)
Microsoft Windows 11

I have HP SLIM Desktop S01-aF0000a and wanted to add an SSD beside already installed HDD. I bought this  SSD from Amazon after ticking compatibility boxes using Crucial s website. Both HDD and SSD needs be connected with Sata 7 and 15 pins but the motherboard does not have another 15 pin slot. I looked into the motherboard and it had a 5 pin connector which I do not know called and an ATX mini 4 pin connector with 15 pin SATA on the other side connected with HDD. This is what the ports are look like:

IMG-20221028-WA0000.jpg

The two ports SATA1 and SATA0 are 7 pins SATA ports. From the looks the SATA-PWR is a 4 pin mini ATX port but I do not know which port SATA-PWR1 is and I guess this is where I need a 15 pin SATA connector on the other side to connect my SSD.

 

Also, I have bought this connector which offers a single 4 pin mini ATX and 2 x 15 pin SATA connectors. I do not know if it is possible to pull the power from a single ATX port to run both SSD and HDD.

 

Either I'd need to understand what the port labeled as SATA-PWR1 is and if it is possible to get a 15 pin SATA connector on the other side or if the 4 pin mini ATX and 2 x 15 pin SATA connectors should be okay to use with my motherboard. I do not know for sure if the port really is a 4 pin mini ATX.

I think this has already been tested by other users..
but an ssd and an hdd, should not be very energy-consuming, moreover it should not often work at the same time..
I couldn't guarantee it, even if I find a thread with this type of usage, it most certainly won't be the same computer, so wouldn't prove anything..
And if that doesn't work, I don't know if there's a way to fix that!

The SATA power connection should come from the power supply, not the motherboard.  Check what spare connections the power supply has.

This is a guide

https://www.technewstoday.com/how-to-connect-sata-power-cable/

If the power supply does not have any spare connectors, you can get a "Y" connector to use the HDD power lead

Here is an example

Thank you for your response. I already have the part L68306-001 included with the desktop but this is a 6 Pin SATA connector and I'd need 15 pins SATA (for both SSD and HDD).

Hi, Thanks for your response. The guide walks through the connector types and how to connect cables which is not my worry here.

 

My problem here is I need to understand if one single ATX mini 4 pin port(if that's what it is) capable to power both SSD and HDD? I have bought this cable for same.

If not, is it possible to get a 15 pin SATA connector on one side and the connector compatible with port labeled as SATA-PWR1 (in the image i have shared above) on the other side?

 

Maybe I'm all wrong and there might be another option to achieve the same so I'm open for any suggestions.

Have you read the links given?
from what i understand, so you already have a hdd

I didn't pay attention to that, in your question because looking at the product page of the model you gave, there is only one SSD
therefore, you must replace the power connector in place, with a double one, if you want to have both hdd and SSD
in the answer of the second link you can see this:

 
that' s it ?

Hi,

Thanks again for your response. Yes, this is the connector I have ordered and wanted to know if the single mini ATX 4 pin port would be capable to power both SSD and HDD. So I guess I'd be okay to use this connector then?

The product I have ordered goes like this:

Thanks. I guess I'll just plug in both and hope the cable wont burn off.
