SSD ( NVME Flash) for iMac Pro - Is it possible to use externally?
My question is as following; Is it possible to reformat the new SSD (NVMe Flash) from the space gray iMac Pro 2017 model A1862 (EMC 3144) externally via an adaptor like - Universal Drive Adapter
I’ve wiped the drive and it’s pulled out. But, I’d like to install the OS independently from the iMac since it’s out of action at the moment.
With any other computer, it’s very much possible to pull out the drive and use it as an external case or adapter. Is that possible with T2 chipped computers, and with this new type of storage in the iMac Pro??
I’ve read as following
The storage in the iMac Pro uses two banks of flash chips, effectively in a RAID 0 configuration. All data written to/from the SSD goes through the T2 security processor, and all data on the flash is encrypted. You can not, for example, pull the SSD modules from one iMac and read them in another iMac - the T2 prevents this from working.
Es esta una buena pregunta?
