I had used a solid state dive in my MacBook Pro and I missed having one in my new Mac Mini.
Once I purchased a new SSD, I was ready to install.
The repair was quick and surprisingly easy. The magnetic project mat really was an eye opener! I had been keeping my project screws and bolts in a shot glass. Having them out and sorted by project step really sped up reassembly!
Also, I discovered that my Mini came with its hard drive installed in the "deep" position. This saved a lot of disassembly steps, but did cause some moments of confusion while I decided if it would be ok to install my SSD in the top position. I also needed to improvise the connector since the one I got was for the drive in the deep position.
Be prepared to find your Mini in the same configuration as mine was.
