2006-08 Mac Mini eSATA Card Install/Mods page updated
Updated the page on 2006-2008 Mac Mini eSATA Card (mini-PCIe) Install/Mod to include a UK reader's (2007 mini w/ML) notes on a Delock SATA3 card. (I think it uses an ASMedia controller. Most earlier installs used a Silicon Image 3132 SATA2 card that requires an OS X driver install. Back on Feb 7th, an iMac owner (OS X 10.9.x) said he had problems with an ASmedia AS1061 based card (CONRAD-SATA-ASM1061), but it may have been a bad sample.)
