|I have just upgraded to Leopard on my Mini in an effort to install XP on my Mac mini to check everything works before applying it to my MBP.
I have tried all the firmware updates i can find, but when the machine reboots to install XP pro all i get is a black screen and the cd spinning up as if it's doing something.
I know this has already been talked about, but it seems to be based around existing XP installs, not new one's!
Can anyone guide me in the right direction?
I plugged in a DVI to VGA Converter, and this has entirely fixed the problem.
Thanks for any of you who thought of the solution!
