Right so, I have a Xbox 360 that i RGH'd, and i was wondering whether it is possible to desolder the HDD connector on the side of the MB and replace it with a SATA port or even a SATA + SATA power port? Therefore i can then mount a hard drive internally in the Xbox 360 without the Hdd connector to SATA cable lying in the case. The image above shows the HDD connector pin out.

My plan is modifying a Xbox 360 console(phat), to add a extra SATA port by desoldering the internal Hdd connector, i have the pin out of voltages but i would like to solder headers from the pin out on the motherboard (the right side as that is the pin out for SATA data) and solder a header socket to a small circuit board and then solder a SATA data port on the circuit board, but the thing that is bothering me i whether or not i will need to solder any resistors on the circuit board i will then find voltage sources to wire a SATA power connector to power a hard drive.
