I changed the HDD in My 2011 Mini, please shower me with praise and affirmations

Previous thread [forums.macresource.com]

I ran to Harbor Freight and picked up a torx wrench kit for about $7. I then spent the next hour trying to look at install pictures and somehow retrieved the previous drive and crammed the new drive in. I had mainly been using this Mini as a backup for Shop but only in extreme emergencies. This happened when my MP 2009 Radeon 5770 video card died. My mini used to rainbow wheel opening apps, files, etc. It was painful to use. The new SSD definitely helps. NO MORE RAINBOW WHEELS!

Sounds like you did better than me. I ended up with a couple of parts left over.

Yay!

In contrast, my very sick (2009) Mac Mini is now heading to the recycle bin...

Huzzah!




Two for two, I'm good now.

We are a government of laws, not men.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

Everybody matters or nobody matters.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

We don’t do focus groups. They just ensure that you don’t offend anyone, and produce bland inoffensive products. —Sir Jonathan Ive

-An armed society is a polite society.
And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.

That was one of my favorite sketches on SNL, back when I liked SNL.

RIP, Phil.
