No Title (You should edit this question)Can the SSD be upgraded?

Texto:

I have a MacMini like yours. Already replaced the factory HD with a Crucial MX 100 SSD and it's a lot better. I now want to place also a PCIe SSD in order to have a fusion drive. Makes no sense? NO! Although both are SSDs, the latter is a faster type and can give a boost to the OS and apps. You need 2 thing:

- the bay that holds the factory's HD must be replaced with one that has a socket (and related data and power supply connector  to the MB) for a PCIe SSD (you're MacMini doesn't). Apple doesn't sell this. You can have it only via replament if you purchased the Fusion model. So you must be sufficiently lucky to get it from the web as I did (the Bay).

- a PCIe SSD. This is the hot matter. Looks that PCIe SSDs for MacMinis must be Apple firmware flashed. I Bought a 64 Gbyte SSD from a MacBook Air but the firmware can't see it. Where is the problem? Frankly I don't know as somebosy in the iFixit forum states he put a standard Samsung PCIe SSD and works. I asked him detail avout the SSD. I'm still waiting for a reply.
