使用本指南更换硬盘或混合硬盘版 Mac mini 2014 中的硬盘。

本指南是使用混合硬盘 Mac mini 制作的。 如果您的 Mac mini 只有机械硬盘,请跳过有关 PCIe SSD 及其连接器的步骤。

    • 用塑料撬棍来撬开Mac Mini的底盖。

    • 抬起,移除底盖。

    • 现在千万不要把天线盘全部移除了!!Mac Mini上还插着连接线呢!

    • 在机身接口对着你的时候,把天线盘翻到右边去,这样就可以看到连接线了。

    • 用撬棒的头子,在连接板上抬起天线连接线。

    • 小心地从电源和盖子之间的缝隙拉出连接线。

    • 风扇连接器卡在风扇的角落,拔掉后永远也不能装回去了。

    • 千万不要尝试拆下整个风扇!

    • 抬起风扇来松掉在主板上的不脱落螺丝。

    • 把风扇从SSD拿开直到你可以轻易动风扇连接器。

    • 用撬棒的头子来从主板上拔掉风扇连接器。

    • 移除SATA连接线支架。

    • 用撬棒平的一面从主板拔掉SATA连接线。

    • 用撬棒尖的一端直接从插口撬开红外感应器连接线。

    • 把盖子拿走。

    • 从插头上撬开PCIe SSD连接线。

    • 为了移除主板,Mac Mini主板移除工具的两个圆形的头子必须插入图上红色圆圈标注的口里。如果插到任何一个其他主板上的口里,有可能会损坏主板。

    • 插入Mac Mini主板移除工具。在进行下一步之前请确保移除工具已经接触到了下面的壳子。

    • 轻轻地向插孔面板这边按压工具。主板和插孔面板应该会平稳地滑出来。

    • 当Mac Mini主板移除工具接触到了上方外壳后,停止下来。

    • 可以移除工具了。

    • 把电源适配器的线从主板的插头上拔掉。

    • 小心地拉出主板组件,记得留意有没有线卡住。

    • 电源适配器接口由一个小金属片固定着。

    • 用一个镊子或手指拉掉插口下方的金属片。

    • 安装金属片时,把它推进去直到底--即使没卡住也应该固定住了。

    • 为了从壳子上移除电源适配器,拉住电源插口,像开门一样。

    • 将插口逆时针旋转90°。

    • 电源适配器的闩应该与上方轨道对齐了。

    • 在重新组装时,确保电源适配器已经努力推到里面了,这样的话,闩就能系到轨道上。

    • 把电源适配器滑出Mac Mini,注意有没有线会卡住。

    • 抬起卸下硬盘托盘。

    • 移除4个(每边2个)固定着硬盘的6.5毫米 九角螺丝。

    • 抬起硬盘然后从硬盘托盘拿走。

    • 重新组装时,请务必将硬盘连接线穿过硬盘托盘中的插槽。

    • 小心地拉下保护 SATA 连接线的胶带。

    • 拔出 SATA 连接线。

    • 小心地撕开两个垫脚(一个在图片里可见)并在新硬盘上将垫脚贴到同样的地方。

如要重新组装设备,请按照倒序进行。

Aluminum 'Unibody' Mac mini Q&A

How do you upgrade the storage in the Aluminum 'Unibody' Mac mini models? What type of hard drive(s) or SSD(s) do they each support?

There are five different lines of Aluminum 'Unibody' Mac mini systems -- the 'Mid-2010,' 'Mid-2011,' 'Late 2012', 'Late 2014' and 'Late 2018' -- with notable differences in supported storage.

Identification Help

If you're not sure which Aluminum Mac mini model you have, the optical drive equipped 'Mid-2010' models and current 'Late 2018' 'Space Gray' models should be easy to spot (at least for now), but many models in between these lines are more of a challenge.

All Aluminum Mac mini models can be precisely identified by the Model Identifier in software or externally by EMC Number, and more details about specific identifiers are provided in EveryMac.com's extensive Mac Identification section.

To locate the model identifier in software, select 'About This Mac' under the Apple Menu on your computer and click the 'More Info...' button. If the Mac mini is running OS X 10.7 'Lion' or later, you will need to click the 'System Report' button after clicking 'More Info...' as well.

For the pre-Late 2014 Mac mini models, the EMC number is visible upon removing the bottom 'spin off' panel to the right of the memory slots (when the ports are facing you). It is on the bottom of the 'Late 2014' and 'Late 2018' models toward the ports.

As always, EveryMac.com has hand documented the model identifiers and EMC numbers unique to each model, which are most easily visualized as a chart:

EveryMac.com's Ultimate Mac Lookup feature -- as well as the EveryMac app -- also can identify these models by their Serial Numbers.

Storage Types, Dimensions & Requirements

Regular 'Mid-2010' Aluminum 'Unibody' Mac mini models, which have optical drives, support a single 2.5-inch, 9.5 mm tall, 3 Gb/s Serial ATA (SATA Revision 2.0) hard drive or SSD (or two storage drives if you remove the optical drive). The oddball Mac mini 'Core 2 Duo' 2.66 Server (Mid-2010) supports two storage drives of the same type (and no optical drive).

All 'Mid-2011' and 'Late 2012' models hold two 2.5-inch storage drives with the same 9.5 mm height restriction, but have faster 6 Gb/s Serial ATA (SATA Revision 3.0) support.

The non-server 'Mid-2011' and 'Late 2012' models, which only ship with one hard drive by default, a second hard drive or SSD is supported, but one has to purchase the cable needed to attach the drive to the board before installation is possible.

A user from the MacRumors forums first determined that the needed part is referred to as the 'Bottom Hard Drive Flex Cable' (Apple Part Number 922-9560) and successfully installed a second drive. More recently, site sponsor Other World Computing began offering a 'Data Doubler' upgrade kit for the Aluminum Mac mini models that includes everything needed to perform this upgrade -- the cable, drive bracket, precisely sized screwdrivers and screws -- in one convenient package.

The 'Late 2014' models have a 6 Gb/s Serial ATA (SATA Revision 3.0) connector for a 2.5-Inch hard drive or SSD in addition to a proprietary PCIe connector for a 'blade' SSD. As first noted by site sponsor OWC, the cable to connect this SSD to the PCIe connector is not present unless the system is configured with a 'Fusion Drive' at the time of initial purchase. However, it is possible to buy this cable later. This 'PCIe SSD Cable Connector' is part number 821-00010-A.

The current 'Late 2018' models have onboard storage and it cannot be upgraded at all after the initial system purchase.

These details can be helpfully summarized accordingly:

Hard Drive Upgrade Official Disclaimer & Cautions

To upgrade the memory in the Aluminum 'Unibody' Mac mini models released before and after the Late 2014 models, Apple has made it straightforward. Replacing the hard drive or hard drives is a more complicated procedure and Apple does not support users performing this upgrade themselves.

In the User Guide, Apple formally states the following:

Except for memory, do not attempt to replace or repair any components inside your Mac mini. If your Mac mini needs service, consult the service and support information that came with your Mac mini for information about how to contact an Apple Authorized Service Provider or Apple for service.
Drive

Mac Mini Hard Drive Replacement 2014

If you install items other than memory, you risk damaging your equipment, and such damage isn't covered by the limited warranty on your Mac mini.

As Apple does not consider the hard drive to be a 'customer installable part,' EveryMac.com cannot recommend that users perform the upgrade themselves. Most likely should instead add a quick and easy external hard drive or alternately hire a professional. Given the small and densely packed nature of the Aluminum Mac mini models this certainly is not a good system to upgrade yourself without substantial experience upgrading the hard drive in similar systems.

Hard Drive Upgrade Instructions

However, for highly experienced users, upgrading the hard drive or hard drives -- or swapping in one or more SSDs -- is difficult, but feasible nevertheless.

These videos from OWC cover the procedure for the optical-drive equipped 'Mid-2010' models and the optical drive-less 'Mid-2010' Server, 'Mid-2011,' 'Late 2012,' and models, in a step-by-step fashion:

'Mid-2010' Mac mini (One Hard Drive, One Optical Drive)


'Mid-2010' Mac mini Server (Dual Hard Drives)

'Mid-2011' & 'Late 2012' Mac mini (Dual Hard Drives)

'Late 2014' Mac mini (Hard Drive or Fusion Drive; PCIe SSD Instructions)

It is hoped that by watching the videos you should be able to determine whether or not you feel comfortable performing the upgrade yourself or if you would rather hire a professional.

Mac mini Hard Drive or SSD Purchase Options

In theory, just about any hard drive or SSD that meets the minimum requirements should work in the Mac mini. However, it always is best to buy from a trusted company with Mac knowledge for the most trouble-free experience.

In addition to the convenient storage upgrade kit for applicable Aluminum Mac mini models, Other World Computing sells compatible hard drives and SSDs and offers an installation service, as well.

In the UK and Ireland, site sponsor Flexx sells Mac mini compatible SSDs with free shipping. The company provides flat rate shipping to France, Germany, and Switzerland and inexpensive shipping for all of Europe, too.

In Australia, site sponsors Macfixit and Upgradeable sell Mac mini compatible hard drives and SSDs with fast shipping, a money-back guarantee and more.

In New Zealand, site sponsor Upgradeable New Zealand sells Mac mini hard drives and SSDs with fast delivery to all corners of the country, precise compatibility, a lifetime warranty, and a money-back guarantee.
