Comment on Splitting Your Data: An Alternative to Fusion by Silvestre http://blog.macsales.com/24915-splitting-your-data-an-alternative-to-fusion/comment-page-1#comment-94937 Fri, 27 Feb 2015 11:06:22 +0000 http://blog.macsales.com/?p=24915#comment-94937 Hi Ben,

I am intending to swap the HDD in my mac mini 6,2 for a SSD and also to add a second SSD on the upper bay. I am very confused as to how to go about it. The steps outlined above are clearly explained but I struggle with Step 3. How do I start the whole thing? Do I copy everything on my factory installed HDD onto a new SDD using the ‘Express Enclosure’?

And then I add the new SSD to the lower bay of the Mac mini? My main question is how do I install OS Yosemite on the new blank SSD? Do i have to copy the OS from the Express Enclsosure?

I would like a fresh installation but if this is too difficult I am happy just copying everything that is already on the factory HDD onto the new SSD.

My ultimate goal is to have one SSD for the OS and home folder and another one (bigger) to store all types of media, as you described above.

I would be grateful if you could answer my questions. And thanks for your patience.

Comment on OWC Announces Pre-Order Availability for OWC Thunderbolt 2 Dock, Supporting Connectivity for up to 78 Devices by Mike D http://blog.macsales.com/27663-owc-announces-pre-order-availability-for-owc-thunderbolt-2-dock-supporting-connectivity-for-up-to-78-devices/comment-page-1#comment-94936 Fri, 27 Feb 2015 02:15:01 +0000 http://blog.macsales.com/?p=27663#comment-94936 Hi — I’m ready to purchase this, but I’m getting conflicting advice. I want to connect two Thunderbolt (Apple) displays. So, Macbook Pro –> TB display –> TB display (daisy chained). Display of MB would *not* be used.

The El Gato people tell me that their dock supports this configuration; your people tell me your dock does not, which confuses me. Unless I get an answer from OWC, I’ll probably have to go with the El Gato, even though I like yours better.

Feel free to email me.

Comment on OWC Announces MaxRAM Memory Upgrades to 16GB for 2010 Mac mini, MacBook and MacBook Pro by OWC Alex http://blog.macsales.com/16353-owc-announces-maxram-memory-upgrades-to-16gb-for-2010-mac-mini-macbook-and-macbook-pro/comment-page-1#comment-94935 Thu, 26 Feb 2015 22:47:12 +0000 http://blog.macsales.com/?p=16353#comment-94935 That serial number comes up as a MacBook Pro7,l model identifier. I would recommend confirming the model identifier using these instructions from Apple. As long as it is indeed a MacBook Pro7,1 you can use 16GB of memory. If you have any questions, please contact our tech support team via phone at 800-869-9152, or 815-338-8685 internationally; by chat; or by e-mail.

The 6,2 is rated for 8GB. The 2010 7,1 model MacBook Pro is the only MacBook Pro from 2010 that will take 16GB. We keep compatibility information on each product page under the descriptions and that lists all the compatible computers. We are also available to assist with any questions over the phone at 800-869-9152, or 815-338-8685 internationally; by chat; or by e-mail.

Comment on To TRIM or not to TRIM (OWC has the answer) by OWC Alex http://blog.macsales.com/11051-to-trim-or-not-to-trim-owc-has-the-answer/comment-page-1#comment-94932 Thu, 26 Feb 2015 14:15:30 +0000 http://blog.macsales.com/?p=11051#comment-94932 An SSD needs TRIM, or some sort of substitute, to function properly over the long term. In the past TRIM enablers have allowed that for Mac machines. That said, Apple has measures in place to prevent TRIM enablers in Yosemite so it is best to avoid them if that is the OS you are running.
