Create Fusion Drive problems
I have a 27" iMac with Retina 5K display - Intel Core i5, current OS-X is Yosemite 10.10.4.
I changed out the 1TB HD with a 6TB HD. Reinstalled software, created two partitions (2 separate drives).
MAIN GOAL: To create a Fusion Drive.
PROBLEM: cannot unmount disk using terminal while booting from usb drive. I have found tons of instructions online, this site as well, none work.
Disk utility will not unmount or erase the drive that has the recovery partition (actually on the 6tb drive, not on the apple SSD). What I need to find out is how to TOTALLY clean wipe each drive with no recovery partition, then I will be able to fuse them together and then add on a new install of Yosemite.
The drives are already wiped clean of data, but still have the recovery causing the issue. I just want to Fuse the GD things together.
I have watched a ton of videos and blogs that are supposed to deal with this, but so far none have worked. I've been using terminal to try to unmount and force unmount and fuse the drives. I have the same problem on 2 separate iMacs. Any help is appreciated. I have been working on this for 3 days and am getting very frustrated.
Sites I've tried and their instruction failed:
Mac mini (Late 2012 and later), iMac (Late 2012 and later): About Fusion Drive - Apple Support
Is this a good question?
