    Hey guys. This is my first post but have been a long time forum follower. I have a problem that I would like an easy solution for.

    I have a mid-2011 MacMini and since purchasing brand new, have upgraded the RAM and also have 2 Samsung 850 EVO 256gb in it.

    Ever since I put the SSDs in it, it's always read the 2 SSD's separate. I finally decided I want to combine the 2 drives and RAID 0 it.

    This is what I did. I backed up the computer via time machine to an external hdd. I downloaded OS X onto a separate hdd as a boot drive. I used the terminal to setup the RAID 0 and seems like it was a success. It reads as 1 512gb drive now.

    Heres where it gets hairy. I have booted the system and used internet recovery to install OS X onto the RAID 0 drive now. That seemed successful. Now I am trying to restore the time machine backup onto the RAID 0 but have not had any luck. What am I doing wrong?

    Please help me, I'm lost (or having a brain fart).

    I don't think the RAID has anything to do with it. And I'll guess you are trying to do it through the Time machine interface? Try with the utility, Migration Assistant.
