DIY Fusion Drive Question 2013

2013 2013 2013


I just got my 2.6 Mac Mini together with 16GB of Crucial RAM, 256 Samsung 840 Pro SSD and the OWC Data Doubler Kit. I'm currently using a late 2007 Macbook running Snow Leopard and would like at least some of the apps and data to be migrated.



I'm resisting ripping up all the boxes tonight and getting to work on a DIY Fusion Drive until i get the installation plan right before i mess up my new system and void any warranties (will I?).



What is the best way to set up the Fusion drive?



1) Start up the Mac Mini, use the Setup Assistant to migrate the stuff I want, clone the 1tb stock HDD then install the SSD and go through the OWC instruction steps for a fusion drive, boot from the clone then restore the data? (Problem is I do not have access to a backup HDD for the clone so I'll need to wait to resolve this)



or



2) Test that the stock Mac Mini is working fine without migrating any of my existing stuff, install the SSD, run Disk Utility which now sees the set-up as a broken Fusion Drive to set-up the Fusion Drive and lastly use Migration Assistant to move my stuff from the MacBook. Question, without any Mountain Lion clones, will I have any problems getting the system up and running again?



or is there a better way given that i'm starting from scratch on the Mac Mini and don't have any data to lose on it.



I am quite clear on the hardware installation part but just can't get my head around how to work the software installation yet.



Thanks. :confused::confused:</div>
