Where is the SSD located at?

I recently purchased the iMac 27 2010 i7 with the additional 256GB ssd. Unfortunately, both HDD and SSD were listed as non-functional in the disk utility. I first thought the SATA controller might be defective but when I swapped out the 1TB HDD out with a working one, OSX runs fine from it. The SSD still gets listed in disk utility (as faulty). I havent found the SSD inside of the Mac, does anybody where it is?

Thanks for answering!

This series could be ordered with an SSD (rarely done) or someone added it.

Apple placed the SSD in-between the air dams located behind the logic board (you’ll need to put it to get to it) and most people added the SSD just behind the optical drive as you can see in this IFIXIT guide: Installing iMac Intel 27" EMC 2390 Dual HDD or SSD Drive.

These early SSD’s Apple used where expensive! And often did not last very long either. Even the early 3rd party drives were still iffy. Todays drives are so much better!

The SSD was factory installed so I have to remove the logic board. %#*@.
