Sounds like a great inexpensive deal that just doesn't work reliably if at all.
You'll need to stick with products that are actually built for Mac.
This model uses the same sticks as the MacBook Air late 2013. Here's what's available:
They do not have this listed for the MacMini 2014 and I don't know why not, lets see if @danj knows.
If you get the one with the external enclosure it makes transferring data and formatting easy, do not clone as you will not get the repair partition properly installed. Do a clean install then migration assistant.
You can now keep the enclosure with the old stick for a Time Machine User folder backup or sell it on eBay for a profit over what you paid for it (people get them for recovery on original sticks and they are in demand.)

Your SSD specs: Samsung M.2 MZHPV256HDGL (SM951) SSD
I'm trying to choose the right SSD for my Mac Mini 2014 late (originally 1TB HDD).
@guille86 are you sure that MZHPV256HDGL suitable for 821-00010-A ?
Because the adapter pins and SSD pins are different. Thanks
Hello @djanym, please read again my message, since I have mentioned another part required to make this config to work. :)
Cannot figure out how to add pictures here, but there is an adapter playing a key role between the flex cable and the flash drive: as far as I know, it is called "NGFF M.2 PCIe SSD Card as 2013 2014 2015 MacBook SSD" -I saw this adapter and this flash drive being detected successfully on a MBP of those those years; NGFF stands for Next Gen Form Factor.
Hope this helps!
Thanks Guille it works beautifully. I had the same trouble as you with the NVME 960 pro not being recognised so had to put quite a bit of pressure on it to make contact. Was worried it would break. LoL
Saved a heap doing it this way.
Hello! I'm still using mentioned configuration for almost a year, without issues of any kind -let me insist on the boost for the boot-up time & time to initiate apps continues to be awesome- ; hope my experience continues to help somebody else.
