My suggestion would be using an adapter like this one :alesanremo wrote:Excuse me for the question, but reading all the posts about this matter I'll get a little bit confused, so I ask to the experts if this ssd hd works fine and if needs other hardware to run into my x41 or I've just to plug it and play?

and a msata ssd like this one :

so if you need to do 'secure erase', you can take the msata ssd from msata to ide adapter, into another adapter like these :

and perform secure erase on another laptop / pc with sata connector ..
a friend of mine in indonesia already done this and the X41 is now running on Linux
