Hi there. First post.
I've found a lot of instruction here and elsewhere regarding installing an ssd as either a primary or second drive. But I can't find much regarding installing two unformatted ssd's

I've just picked up a 2012 i5 and am upgrading the ram to 16 gig. I've also purchased 2x crucial m550 512 GB ssd's.

Here are my questions:
Will the Mac mini support this instal? If so, does anyone have a link to this double ssd install?

And, once I've completed the instal, what's the best way to format, then load up osx onto the system. I bought the CPU as is so it didn't come with any install disks (not that the mini has a drive for such...).

Thanks for any and all advice!

You might want to go to the OWC (Mac Sales) web site and see what they say about installing a second drive in the Mini. Go here and read up on their data doubler hardware for the Mini.
