    Hello everyone.

    I have a mid-2011 Mac mini that I want to get working again. The flex cable is broken in half and I need to:

    1) Repair that
    2) Put it back together

    Can I repair it without buying a new sata flex cable? They look rather expensive.

    Depends. What's broken ?
    You can find flex cables for €20 on eBay for example - the same ones that let you install a second drive in the spare bay.

    If the ribbon cable is "broken", it's going to require replacement.

    It's probably that simple...
