SSD install did not work (software)
I managed to install my Corsair Force III 120Gb SSD in my brand new Mac Mini using the ifixit kit. I then cloned the original HDD to the new SSD and booted from it. All I got was a kernel panic (related, most of the times, but not at every boot, to ACPI).
I removed the SSD and installed it on a Windows machine so to upgrade the firmware to 1.3.3.
I re-installed the SSD in the Mac (by now I can do the job in ~5 minutes) but still no luck. I could only boot in safe mode.
I would therefore advise not to install a Corsair Force Sata III in a Mac Mini because it does NOT work. Also, if it worked, it would suck anyway because I benchmarked it (using the original HDD to boot) and speed is pretty much the the same as the standard HDD.
Has anyone managed to install a Corsair in their Mac mini and if yes, what results did you get?
Is this a good question?
