I'm waiting for a 2011 Mac Mini to arrive with 500GB HD and 4GB RAM. I have ordered a 120GB SSD, doubler kit, and 8GB or RAM. My plan from reading what I could find is to setup the drives as a DIY Fusion. Is this the way to go? I have nothing to restore or preserve in the process. Once I have the drives installed and everything back together, I need to load an OS again. Is the process to just power on while holding Command R then selecting restore and following prompts for an internet recovery? All new to me but I have been trying to research and I learn quickly. I plan to reuse an older USB hard drive from my PC as a Time Machine backup once I have everything setup an working. This will only require that I connect and format the drive to use it, correct? I have more questions but I will leave this here as a starting point to at least get the conversation going. If you prefer, you can point me to threads already in place with a lot of this info. I have been around here a while but all my time is iOS devices, Apple Watch, etc but its come time to have a MAC now too. Older but should work for me.
