Hi! So I picked up a Late 2015 27inch iMac locally for a pretty good deal I think. Looking for good memory deals to boost it up. However - I'm trying to figure out if I have a fusion drive or not. Currently, it's loaded w/ Mojave and APFS format and it only says 2 TB SATA drive.

1. I tried to run diskutil resetfusion and it say I did not have a SSD drive.
2. When I run diskutil list my output is as such:
3. When I run diskutil cs list - it outputs No CoreStorage logical volume groups found

It's a mid tier 3.3. i5 so not the base model and I thought based on the specs, a 2 TB Fusion Drive was standard.

Do I indeed only have a SATA or am I missing something. Any help would be appreciated!

Open disk utility.
In the menu bar, go to "view" and see if "show all devices" is selected.

If it IS NOT, select it.
Then review the disk utility window and see if anything has changed.

Maybe I am only stuck w/ a SATA drive, or the SSD failed or dislodged somehow during transit. I've ran the Apple Diagnostic Test and passed w/ no issues.

Yeah - in either case - it's still very usable as is. Just needs more Ram vs the standard 8GB. If I do every open it up, will just swap a full SSD or replace the PCI-e in since it's a PITA to open the slim-line ones. I know a 1 TB 7200 was available but this was the 3.3 Core i5 and was noted to come w/ the 2 TB (which I have) and it was supposed to be a fusion drive.
