So how fast is it? You can turn it on anyway no problems. Read this article for more information.

Read this post for info on how to get around this. Also here is another very good article on this. You can use your old Internal Drive as a backup drive.

Seriously fast boot-up and excellent system responsiveness compared to the 1TB internal hard drive. No need to pull the Mac apart to upgrade the boot drive just leave the internal spinning disk in place as your data drive, it works fine as an APFS volume, provided its not the system disk. Installing an internal SSD may give you optimal performance but using an external USB boot SSD still gives a much more responsive system than the old hard drive, for minimal upgrade difficulty and minimal cost.

However, during the night the Mac reboots and establishes the Mac HD as the default start-up….. How do I remedy this issue?

Follow-up to my prior comment. I received the following error message: The disk you inserted was not readable by this computer. We were going to replace it , but this solution made it work like a new machine…much faster overall. Today, high-capacity SSDs are more affordable than ever. A Mac that once took over a minute to boot can now start working in seconds; Macs built with SSDs can awaken from sleep instantly. Despite superior performance, high prices led Apple to slowly stagger solid state drive adoption across individual Mac product lines.

Nine years later, dramatically faster and smaller SSDs with the same capacities can be had for less than a tenth of those prices, so every current Mac either has an SSD by default or as an option. Running cooler, quieter, and with superior energy efficiency than traditional hard drives, SSDs have fewer failures, and reputable manufacturers tend to warranty them for longer than their predecessors.

Not all SSDs are equivalent in reliability and performance, but ones from top-tier chip companies are pretty incredible. Good news first: most older Macs and even some current Macs can be easily user-upgraded to include SSDs. Hard drive replacement is generally the best option. Bad news: the newer the Mac, the greater the likelihood that actually installing the drive yourself will be tricky.

I strongly recommend updating your Mac to the latest non-beta version of macOS it can run before beginning the backup process. Then restore directly from your Time Machine backup. BUT, if I set it into target disk mode, I can use the hard drive in the mini as the boot disk for my laptop. Anyone know where I can get the mac mini disk image or special files that the mini needs to boot?

There is a known issue with the SATA cable you should first check it out see above note by me. Also, did you set the SSD as the boot volume as you have both setup with system files.

How To Enable Trim Support On SSD in Mac OSX

Machistmo lumache. This is no small task and took me about an hour to complete fully. I would say that all you need is the MB removal tool and a T6 and T8 and T8 Security , though I think it is important that your tools be long bladed as a couple of times you are removing screws at an angle.

The improvement is awesome and I use the EVO as the time machine drive. Help Translate iFixit.
