-I had similar issues as others in this thread when I added a Samsung 840 Pro 128GB SSD into the upper bay of a late-2012 (i5 model) Mac Mini. The SATA cable supplied with the iFixit kit (purchased 11/2012) caused issues when trying to install OS X. I could see the SSD drive in Disk Utility, but the OS X install would have errors or if it did complete, I wasn't able to boot to the drive. I always got a white screen with a circle and slash through it which means the system couldn't find a bootable drive with an OS.

After reading this thread, I switched the drives and put the stock 500GB HDD in the upper bay (using iFixit SATA cable) and the Samsung SSD in the lower bay. All worked correctly using the Apple SATA cable in the lower bay with the Samsung.
Previously, I had an Intel 520 Series SSD in the upper bay using the iFixit SATA cable and it was compatible and worked with no issues. So, it appeears the cable isn't compatible with Samsung drives.
I don't know if iFixit has started supplying a different SATA cable with their Dual Drive Kit since my purchase.
