For my mid-2011 Mac Mini I had to skip steps and read comments to know that. This guide was step by step on the money for me.
For those, thinking about getting a regular hard drive ONLY versus a fusion drive which is your SATA + SSD; I highly recommend the added $100 for the fusion drive. Here is why. When you replace that spinning disk with your own SSD, the chasis has that extra SSD attached to it. That translates into even more SSD storage you can partition/reformat and use!
Anyways, AWESOME write-up. I have the Mac Mini removal tool, the splunger, and 64 bit driver kit. All worth the money, IMHO.
I suggest removing the 27 mm tool, otherwise Step 23 will not work.
