I have a late 2012 mac mini whose hardrive was causing me lot of issues. I decided to move onto Linux and I have formatted the complete hard drive and installed Linux on it. I would like to get back to OSX and I have decided to upgrade my harddrive to an SSD.
The question is how can I do it. I do not have any backups. I do have access to a macbook pro which can be used to create a bootable USB stick.
Can i just boot using the option command and install Mac OS X from the USB onto the new SSD or should I be aware of any tricky situations?
