Default OK to upgrade RAM after OS X install? - 06-24-2009, 03:38 AM

Hi, my first post.

I installed OS X on my mini 9 with 16GB SSD and 1GB RAM, the other day, using the DellEFI method using another Mac-Thanks for the great guide Mechdrew. Everything is great except I now want to upgrade the RAM to 2GB, but became a little concerned w2hen I saw the Trouble after upgrading to 2GB RAM thread.

I didn't want to hijack that thread and I did a search and googled it without finding anything (which i guess is a ngood sign), so i thought it best to start a new thread. I have Kingston KVR800D2S6/2G DDR2-800 2GB/256x64 CL6 SODIMM Notebook Memory which is apparently ok for the Mini 9.

Any advice would be appreciated. Thank you.

I updated after installing OSX and didn't have any issues at all.

Well, I think my problem (in the thread you refer to) is now fixed, I just had to run dellefi using the 1GB memorystick once again. I still do, actually, if I run dellefi, but that seems to be an issue only for me (and perhaps a software bug).

I do not know if I would recommend an upgrade anyhow, as I don't really feel that the machine is that much faster with 2GB than with 1GB. Probably will try to get my hands on a faster SSD.
