Mijn probleem

Apple doesn't sell fusion drives for the low-end mini. I figured I could fix it with your repair kit.

Mijn oplossing

The repair went well. I wasn't sure exactly where the 'retainer clip' for the power supply went as I didn't pay attention when pulling it out.

This is unrelated to your repair kit. When creating the fusion drive I had to install the OS 2 times from the net (painfully slow) because I couldn't figure out how to make an install thumb drive with my new mini. The appstore won't let me download Snow Leopard (some error saying my purchase couldn't be completed because it won't work on my mini). I'm sure that issue will clear up with the next release of OS X (10.8.3).

Mijn advies

Be careful putting the grommets in the plastic mount.

There was a cover over the antenna connection so I couldn't easily pop-off the antenna cable until I had slide the motherboard out a little.

You might have to squeeze the prongs of the "mac mini motherboard removal tool" together a little bit in order for it to go all the way in and make contact with the top of the case.
