The slot is proprietary, and it is not an M.2 or mSATA slot. I have seen no adapters on the market that will allow you to connect an ordinary SATA drive to the proprietary connector.

These speeds can be expected from ordinary hard drives - you'll to buy an SSD to get much higher speeds. However please keep in mind that these speeds are the bulk transfer speed. I.e. if you transfer only one large file without ...

You have to edit the partition table and modify the type of disk1s2 (and correct the type of disk1s3) to get your main data partition back and make Boot OS X invisible: Log-in as admin Open Terminal and enter sudo gpt -r show /dev/disk1 to get an overview Unmount disk1: diskutil umountDisk /dev/disk1 Remove partition 2 and 3: sudo gpt remove -i 3 ...
