Dell Wyse 5060 Storage Upgrade

I came across the Dell Wyse 5060, a nifty little thin client, on eBay for a bargain price of around $30. Initially, I used it as a QDevice for my Proxmox Cluster, but its downside was the limited 16GB storage. However, my recent foray into playing around with LXC Containers sparked an idea. Could this thin client serve as a host? With an old Kingston 480GB SSD lying around, I wondered if its internals could fit into the Wyse 5060 enclosure. To my delight, after disassembling the Kingston SSD, I found a tiny SSD chip tucked away inside. What's more, the resemblance between this chip and the original drive in the thin client was uncanny. It was time to put it to the test!
