I'll keep it simple and straight: Now I am running on 2010 Macmini with 750GB WD 9.5mm HDD and Optiarc BC-5600S Slot-in Bluray Optic Drive. And guess what! I did not re-install any OS on my Western (It was in 2009 Macmini) Both Leopard and Win7 x64 worked with my previous 2009 macmini installation right-away!
Could someone in ifixit please remove the black plastic cover of the harddrive to see how thermal sensors connects to drive? Because according the guy in some other forums sensors are not user replaceble and requires Apple involvement :( Thanks.
If it's not listed in any spec sheets how we can be sure about the height. I canceled my order just because of this. If it fits i will reorder new macmini. So at the and i really need to know full dimmension of optical drive. I have optiarc 5600s in my old mini and i do not want to waste it:) Thanks!
