Yes, there's a way to install OS X on the SSD. It's called "install OS X on the Fusion Drive." The Fusion Drive automatically puts the most frequently-used files on the SSD. When there are vital system files that your hard drive needs to access in its every waking moment, there's really no reason why the Fusion Drive would ever demote it to the HDD.


If it's a 2005-2009 model then NO! You absolutely cannot plug directly from a AC power source to a computer that does not have a built in transformer power supply, which the Mac mini 2005-2009 model does not have. The AC current must be converted to DC current first and that is what the Mac mini's power supply does. Starting in 2010 the Mac mini used a ...

Get a small SSD with the Mini, store your stuff on a FW800 or Thunderbolt ...

You can get any Mac's product manual from https://support.apple.com/manuals/C02PRT1XGCN3 Just add your serial number instead of the sample one I provided.


Not having the device in person I can only make an assumption. The problem is not the headphones but the audio port on your iPhone. The small connector balls on the inside of the port must be damaged. I'm guessing if you looked inside, there would be one that is stuck in. Try blowing some air in the port or using a small pin to clean the inside. It might ...


Short answer is no. Fusion drive has its own algorithm to determine which individual file goes to which drive, based on frequency of access. It doesn't offer any interface to configure the location of files. Moreover, it doesn't even list out which file belongs to which drive. In fact, the only way to know where a file is, is to read the file while the user ...
