I'm a total mac newcomer so apologies if I'm missing something obvious. I've just got a new i7 mac mini (convert from windows world) and decided to install an ssd (Samsung 840 Pro) as the main disk for OS etc. Worked through the instructions out there and no problems, booted up machine from original hd, formatted/erased the ssd to Mac OS Extended (Journaled) using the Disk Utility. I then rebooted the machine into recovery mode using cmd+R and selected to install OS X to the SSD. This takes around an hour and the machine reboots. At this point I'm a bit lost at what I need to do, the install looks as if it hasn't completed - I can see a folder in Finder - OS X Install Data - if I try to open it I get this message The folder "OS X Install Data" can't be opened because you don't have permission to see its contents. The SSD still does not appear in the startup disk list. Could this be a permissions from with the new SSD? Any other preparation I should have performed on the SSD before doing the install? Again apologies if I'm missing something very obvious, I've searched through the forum and cannot find a solution.
