Fusion drive is missing?

Hi guys
I'm new to MAC, I'm asking why can I only see a 34GB hard disk, on the left it says 1TB

where is my Fusion 1TB? On the color chart?

This has been reported here before. Call Apple, you've got a bug.

I was able to solve the problem by doing the following:

Backing up the mini mac using Time Machine w/ an external hard drive.
Restarting with Command-R.
Opening Disk Utility and erasing the mini mac hard drive.
Restoring the hard drive with the backed up Time Machine file from the external hard drive.
Restarting.
Doing a new back up now !!
