  • End of 2012 Mac mini won't go beyond screen bar startup after update 10.11.4

    Hey all,.

    I'm puzzled.  I have a Late 2012 Mac mini, upgrade 10.11.4 yesterday, after the computer restarts, it was stuck around 60% on the progress of startup screen.  I let it go for 12 hours, nothing.  The screen fell asleep, and when I woke up it I had a mouse cursor which would pass but nothing to use it with.  When you try to start in safe mode, I get a little further, about 95% and then she stalls.  When booting into single user mode, it stops at "pci break: SDXC.  I fixed the disk with DiskWarrior on the repair disk, no help.  Any help would be greatly appreciated, getting very frustrated and I would like to solve it, instead of doing a restore.

    I forgot to add, that when starting in Diag mode, I wonder for a wifi network reach, I do then it's right there.  Do not enter an IP address.

    Thank you!


    The Diag mode gives me an error-2002D.  Looks like I have some errors going on here :/

  • End of 2012 Mac Mini running slow - about to try the following

    Hi all

    The performance of my Mac Mini is trying to drop off and looking for possible solutions to this, I can in this thread: Mac Mini (end 2012) is a little slow.

    A few months ago I updated to El Capitan, and am now on 10.11.3.  Since this update, my system performance fell substantially. I would like to see if I can get my Mini for best results there lately.  One of the questions I think contributes to the Mini, less than excellent performance is my router configuration because of environmental constraints, my Mini has 2 walls and about 50 feet, which separates it from the wireless router.  Currently, I don't think that there is something I can do to help that issue, so for now, I put that side.

    In reading the above thread, I have also still only 4 original GB or RAM and the original supplied with my Mini.

    RAM: 4 GB 1600 MHz DDR3

    HD: I have not changed the HD that came with the mini, so I guess I have the 2.5 GHz 500 GB (5400 RPM) hard drive it is stated in the specifications.

    Lately, I noticed Chrome running progressively slower (to the point of frustration).  Therefore, I uninstalled Chrome and returned using Safari.  As more and more, I use Safari, I think that his performance is what it is.  I tried the Brave and my experience with it is mixed (at least on this point).

    Question: I guess the first thing to do is to increase my RAM to 4 GB - and I will order the RAM here in a moment.  What browser is best to use in this case: Chrome? Safari? Brave? Something else?  Or it is better to run through all these during the upgrade of RAM is installed?

    Let me start with that and I will update this thread as mandate experience.  Thanks in advance for any help and / or thoughts.

  • End of 2012 mac mini and El Capitan

    No problem upgrading to El Capitan in Yosemite?

    Nope. I upgraded my Mac Mini to El Capitan late 2012, when it first came out.

    It has a 240GB SSD in the lower Bay and a Hitachi 500 GB 7200 RPM in the upper Bay.

  • Re: How can I add a second internal hard drive to a Satellite Pro P200?

    I have a Satellite Pro P200 with a single internal hard drive. There is a second Bay in the computer of another internal hard drive, but I couldn't find any information about it. There is enough space for a 2.5 "SATA but I do not see a connector.

    I contacted Toshiba Dutch customer service who said that it was official policy not to provide any information on a second internal drive. They also said that they would not provide parts to make it possible.

    Can anyone provide more information?


    I think that if there is no connector you cannot add a second HDD.
    It of Nice to have a second Bay, but it's nothing without a connector.

    Good bye

  • Can I connect a DVI - DL my end 2012 Mac Mini input?

    Hi all...

    I have a question...  I have a Late 2012 Mac Mini and I just bought a new BenQ XL2411Z 24 "play.  It supports the 1ms and up to 144 Hz.  I know that my Mac Mini (end 2012) has an Intel 4000 1.5 GB graphics installed in it.  Can I use via the HDMI Port or Mini Display Port to connect it to Port DVI - DL on BenQ monitor?

    Is it possible to do and enjoy the benefits of the 144 Hz instead of plain 60 Hz HDMI?  Also, is it possible to update a Video of Mac Mini card?  (Half-joke but always curious to know if it's possible?).

    Thanks in advance!

    Also, is it possible to update a Video of Mac Mini card?

    No, because it does not have a separate video card. The graphics chip is soldered to the logic board.

    60 Hz is maximum refresh rate.

  • Qosmio X 770 - 13F - can I built it second internal HDD/SSD?

    Hello from the snowy mountains of Savoie!

    My computer is a Qosmio X 770 - 13F.

    I am disappointed because it runs very slowly (I have the 'windows 7 explore bar green problem'...)
    I expanded the 8 GB RAM: no change to the actual speed.

    In this computer, there is only one hard drive (750 GB, 5400 RPM).
    The evaluation of access disk hard windows is only 5.9!

    There is an empty place next to the hard drive, so I wonder if it is possible or not to add a second internal hard drive or even an SSD.

    I searched for this user manual: no answer!
    And on the web, I have also not found response.
    Perhaps on this forum?

    Thank you and I apologize for my 'English amateur' (I'm french!)

    In General, it is not easy to discuss the performance of the laptop. All of us use notebook with a specific setup and preinstalled applications that can run in the background and slowing down the reaction of notebooks.

    All I can say is that you must check the OS configuration and disable some unnecessary applications to start with Windows. Also disable the Windows automatic update installation. This can also slow down cell phone operations.

    I n t have this laptop Qosmio but it will be interesting to follow: when you remove the cover and check empty place is available HDD/SSD connector or not?

    While you can certainly add another HARD drive in the Bay of secondary drive (you must also support and the connection cable) you can't boot from it - only in the Bay of primary HARD drive is bootable.

  • How can I add a second computer to my account?

    How can I add a second computer to my account?

    Your single license allows you to have two active facilities, which means that you can have it installed and activated on both machines.  You can have the software installed on the machines as much as you want, but only two of them can be enabled at any given time.

    With regard to the use of both machines at the same time, the jury's currently on it - I had the question of clarification, but has not yet received a response.  They have rewritten recently the license agreement and the portion that explicit, that you can not use both at the same time has been either deleted or moved somewhere else, I have yet to find.

    If you mean you want to have another machine under license for someone else to use, you must purchase a new license for this other person.

  • Can I change HD SSD in my end of 2014 Mac Mini?

    I just bought a Mac Mini (2.6/8/1TB) 2014 end and love it so far. I have a spare Samsung 500 GB SSD (Samsung SSD 840 EVO) that I don't use and I was curious if readers could be exchanged, or better still if the Mac Mini I would be compatible 2 discs? I'd do the boot drive SSD and drive the data reader to say existing 1 TB.

    I would need to bring it in a place (MicroCenter, Best Buy, etc.) to make it happen as I'm not comfortable to perform this type of upgrade on an Apple product.  I realize that the guarantee may be honored after that and I'm fine with that.

    All the words of wisdom? Can it be done? If this is not the case with my SSD existing so what are my options?

    Thanks to a bouquet.


    Yes, you can swap disks. No, there is room for a second disc of 2 1/2 in. in the Mini 2014


  • Can I connect my Mac Mini 2011 my end of 2014 Mac Mini using Thunderbold cable to double the RAM?

    My Mac Mini end of 2014 cannot add everything exceeds 8 GB RAM cable.

    I don't know why Mac was given the opportunity to add more RAM as applications become more and more wide and double my RAM will allow me to run applications of additional third party all in post processing my images.

    I have my Mac Mini 2011 with a Thunderbolt Plug and a delay in 2014 with 2 Sockets Thunderbolt

    I just want to connect two computers so that I can use 8 + 8 = 16 GB of RAM for photography post-processing.

    Buy everything just a Thunderbolt Apple cable to connect two computers and be speed up along?

    I'll probably have to update the old OS Mini at El Capitan

    Thank you!

    No. but you can connect both via TB for quick file sharing
