This is a machine from 2009 and if you are very very lucky you can find the 22 pin SAS connector and plug in your SATA there with this. https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=9SIAH638H43746&Description=sas%20to%20sata%20adapter&cm_re=sas_to_sata_adapter-_-238-0001-000U0-_-Product
I am not offering support here. This old a PC with missing parts is something to be sold off, not kept.
Hello, so I recently purchased an IBM System X3200 M2 and I'm having trouble connecting the hdd.
It is the hot swap SAS/SATA model and it has this backplate that the hdd connects to, then that backplate has a power connector, and a cable from the psu connects there and then there's the data cable, that also connects to the backplate but then I don't know where to plug it in the mainboard. I'm reading the manual and it says the SAS/SATA controller, but I can't find it anywhere.
