Installing Mac mini Mid 2011 Dual Hard Drive Kit

Mijn probleem

I wanted to turn my Mac Mini into a baby server. To be most effective I wanted it to have an SSD to boot from. So I decided to add an SDD drive and keep the existing disk drive for extra storage. I opted for the new Samsung EVO 850 Pro 512GB drive and it boots like a scared rabbit!

Mijn oplossing

The instructions were very complete and the installation went smoothly. I encountered only two problems, both of which were documented in the comments. The little clip that holds in the power cord just would not go back into place and I wound up leaving it out. The other issue was the wi-fi antenna grate....

Mijn advies

The grate that holds the wi-fi antenna would not quite fit back into place until I got a bent paperclip to pull "up" on the grate a little at the back as I pushed in the plate. Then it snapped into place perfectly. I got this tip from the comments listed on the site, so it really was a perfect install. I can't give enough praise to the iFixIt crew on their precision and care in creating these guides. It makes our job easy!
