Intel NUC Model: DC53427HYE msata drive choise

Hi there,

I own an Intel Model: DC53427HYE.

The unit does not have a hard drive.

I want to make sure I get the correct drive for the device - it is a legacy device which was bought from a friend who says it doesn't work.

With this is mind I would at least like to get the correct drive in the machine so I have the best chance of getting it working.

I have taken apart the device and have cleaned the extremely dirt internals and am hoping it will work.

I was thinking of a cheap option like this: https://www.amazon.com.au/TCSUNBOW-mSATA-Solid-State-Machine/dp/B07B9SDVP7/ref=sr_1_10?dchild=1&keyw...

Or if I can get it to work with a live USB then something like this:

https://www.amazon.com.au/Transcend-128GB-MSA230S-mSATA-TS128GMSA230S/dp/B07GMD5R7M/ref=sr_1_1?dchil...

I am in Australia so any local listings with fast delivery times would be preferred.

Many thanks for any assistance.

Hi @blockchained 

The suggested by you Transcend drive may work, however to be on the safe side, better look for drive verified by Intel for your NUC.  For example you may find on this list a Kingston Drives SUV500MS/240G and SUV500MS/480G.

There is many other drives listed in the Compatibility Table.

Sure, I wish you luck. You may see this video Integration and User Guides for Intel® NUC Products to get some help. You may want to use third party application to (like Macrium Reflect for example), to clone your system to the new drive.
