Acer Aspire One SATA HDD Mod.

Well it was one of those days. After preparing to mod my AOne, the SATA socket I was desoldering from external 2.5" case fell to pieces. Another wonderful product from China. So I stripped a SATA data and power cable to use instead.

After 20 minutes of trying to desolder the solder on the AOne SATA solder points I decided to take the motherboard to a handphone shop and see if they would desolder for me. Unfortunately, after one look at those small solder points they decline.

So back home I was in a 'Fuck it' attitude and decided 'come heaven or hell' I was gonna solder those damn SATA sockets in. Which led to me spending 3 hours straight doing this project hence no documentation.

Anyway here is the video and below the links to the images in it.
