Installing SSD- tool & cloning
Hi dear community,
After receiving wonderful help from kind expert Dan and trying out my luck on my old macbook unibody 2008, I have decided to reach further and buy myself a used 2012 mac mini, which I would get tomorrow.
Question 1: about material : do I need the Logic Board Removal Tool to just swap the 500 Go HDD to the new 500 Go SDD ? I know I need the spudger so I will get one.
Question 2: ''Do I have to mind how big the SSD model I will choose is? I saw that the OWC model used in a couple of old videos showing the procedure is quite bulky and seems unpractical.
Question 3: my future mac mini has been erased and reset at the apple store by the genius to its original OS (I guess Lion?) Do I really need to copy that old OS to the new SSD, update the system to Mojave then add my data (process 1) ? Or is it possible to simply use the Time Machine drive that I am using on my 2013 macbook air to get Mojave + all my current data onto the new SDD in one go (process 2) ? Or is it silly to ponder ? Sorry if it is.
Thanks a million for the person who will answer me.
Long live the right to repair!
Ist dies eine gute Frage?
