Seems like sometimes on cold boot my machine will turn on but get no display. It does show power light in front. I also dont hear the drive spin up "hard drive". Holding down the power to turn off and pressing again to turn on resolves it but just wondering might be causing this. I dont believe it was doing this before I installed bootcamp but cant remember for sure. Other then this I have no issues. Would be nice if I could find quick fix of course.

Thanks

I had some similar issues and the Mac mini firmware update 1.0.1 seemed to clear them all up. Did you ever update from 1.0 to 1.0.1?

I did a firmware update to my mini so I could run windows on it. Never did anything after that. Was there another one that came out ?

Thanks

Apple must have heard me complaining lol. New firmware update that Apple Just released fixed the issue.
