If you can’t get the logic board assembly back in so that it is flush (as it was before you did your surgery on the machine) then I would pay attention to two things: 1) the “sock.” Make sure it is back in place in the right way. I wish I could tell you which way that is but because there is no picture I had to guess and I can’t remember what my guess was now. 2) the retaining clip in step 26. I was unable to properly seat the logic board back into the machine so that it was flush UNTIL I fooled around with the clip and, I GUESS, put it in properly this time. After I did that I was able to properly push the logic board back into place.
I fully agree with the pesky nature of this clip. During my reinstall I noticed that the logic board assembly would not go back in flush with the metal case. Nothing I did changed that. I had to pull out the logic board assembly again and for some reason I decided to futz with the clip. I think I must have re-seated it a little bit better because I was then able to push the assembly back into place and make it flush again. This pin is a PITA!
I did too (use one of those pillboxes)! Each step I used one pillbox. It worked like a charm!
I just want to follow-up. I have been using the computer with the new SSD in it and I can’t believe what a difference it has made. Frank Hughes wrote that it was like having a brand new computer and I am in FULL agreement with him. Prior to the SSD it would take perhaps a minute or more to open word or excel. Now the icon literally bounces AT MOST 5 times and the application is open and ready to go. This goes for all of my other apps too: iTunes (which seems to open nearly instantly now), Pixelmator, Acrobat, etc. I rarely wanted to open anything on that machine because it took FOREVER! The entire thing was sluggish; it took forever to process anything. The startup time has dropped DRAMATICALLY! It went from minutes to less than one. I could go on . . . .
Anyhow, I would recommend this upgrade to ANYONE! DO IT! You won’t be disappointed.
This guide was indispensable. I have a 2014 (late? mid? I can’t remember and I can’t find out because the machine is literally downloading the new OS in recovery mode as I type (on my MBP)) MacMini. Before the surgery, my Mini had the 1GB HD that it came with. Needless to say, it was painfully slow. I purchased the tools recommended on this site and followed all of the instructions. In the end I installed a brand new 500GB Samsung 860 EVO SSD HD in my MacMini. Thus far everything seems to be working correctly. Hopefully, I will get the speed gain that I understand comes from swapping out a spinning drive for an SSD. I’m so excited!
