Hey so using a youtube video i installed a ssd i purchased into my 2010 mac mini. Install went mostly well besides cracking one of the holder slots for my ram. But ill come back to that. Before the install i formatted the hard drive as an osx journaled drive so thag i could install osx on it. Now trying to load osx from my restore disks leaves me with a blank white screen and using a usb thumb drive with osx on it gives me a dimmed screen that reads. You need to restart your computer hold the power button. Any solutions? Ive tried holding c when the computer starts and it doesnt bring me to disk utility which i thought was on the osx install dvd. As for my ram slot. Like an idiot i didnt release the ram from the metal prongs. I instead pulled the prongs out a bit with the ram. Im thinking the only solution is to superglue them down or stick something against it before i close the enclosure. I appreciate any input and ideas.
