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.
Ok, then the iFixit article I provided should be helpful.

The basic process will be the following:

- Clone your existing HDD to the SSD.
- Boot from the SSD to verify everything is working properly.
- Replace the HDD with the SSD.

You can then use the HDD as a backup or spare.
