    Hi all!

    I am a new mac user and just got my mac mini yesterday. I bought an ssd and successfully was able to install it and have the mini recognize the drive. I was playing around in the settings and by mistake I erased the standard hdd so right now both of the drives are empty. When I try to boot the mac now I am getting the question mark folder error. Earlier I was able to boot into recovery by pressing the windows key (I am using a dell keyboard) + R key and it worked however for some reason I am unable to get to recovery.

    I have unplugged and reattached everything including the drives but am having issues getting back to recovery to try and get this all working again. I am not quite sure what I did as I am completely new to Mac.

    If anyone could help me out I would greatly appreciate it because I am starting to freak out!!
