  1. Hello, I just followed all the instrucctions. Now I have the 2 disks installed. I restarted my Mac Mini, but I noticed that the fan wasn't working, not moving at all. I opened the case, checked the connection and everything seemed to be just fine. What could happen?. Is there a way to have only the SSD drive and not the original one? I hope you can help me with an answer because I can't work now. Thank you very much in advance.
