I have made some modifications to an old mac mini i picked up. I’ve omitted the optical drive and have two 750GB WD drives installed, maxed the RAM and upgraded the CPU for a core2duo.
Now I’d like to remove the airport card from the PCIe slot on the logic board and install an SSD card: Intel Solid-State Drive 310 Series
My questions are:
- Will OS X recognise this drive in the PCIe slot?
- Will it be bootable so I can load the OS?
- What data transfer speed is possible?
- Did Apple use a standard PCIe?
The plan is to load the OS on to the SSD and have the two 750’s in a RAID 1 configuration as a media array. I don’t need bluetooth or wireless.
Will this work?
