Mac mini (late 2012, 6,2) Unraid Setup & Installation / Configuration Log
I'm creating this as reference for people looking to run Unraid on a Mac mini, as there really isn't any info about this online. In this case, I'm running an MD388LL/A model (6,2), an Intel based model running an Intel i7-3615QM @ 2.3GHz with 16GB DDR3 1600MHz memory. In terms of drives, I'm currently running the original 120GB Apple re-badged SSD and 1TB Apple re-badged HDD which are both near EoL.
For the USB drive I'm using an old spare USB 2.0 Kingston 32GB DataTraveler 104. Space wise, its completely overkill, but I don't have any other spares to hand given my others have been used up on two other Unraid boxes. As for USB 2.0, I've had more success on 2.0 drives than 3+.
p.s. I know there is no installation step, just trying to get good SEO for this post to help wanderers!
