Re: T61p mSATA SSD compatibility

I wanted to go with mSATA because these ultrabay slim adapters are all discontinued and next to impossible to find on Ebay, Amazon, and even newegg, I read somewhere that someone got a mSATA SSD to work in a thinkpad X200 so i was kinda curious if i could get it to work on my T61p.

T61p mSATA SSD compatibility

Would it be possible to fit a mSATA SSD or possibly even a PCI-E SSD into a T61p, Im tired of this 5400RPM Toshiba HDD as my boot drive and I would prefer if I used it as mass storage and a SSD for booting windows, but I dont think the Southbridge supports mSATA but I just want to verify if it works...
