    Are there not jumpers on sata disks? I took out the Hitachi 1 TB hdd from the 2012 mini to use for something else, but there's no jumper/pins.

    Sata drives don't need to jumpers to set which drive is the master and which drive is the slave

    usually no jumpers are needed, some drives have a jumper to select slower SATA mode, mostly needed for older USB cases.
    Master/Slave jumpers where needed using parallel IDE which had the possibility to connect two drives to a single cable.
