Sorry if this question has been asked many times but I am new here,
Trying to install windows XP on my Macmini 2010 all is fine until I get to the blue windows install menu, when it asks you to press enter to continue!
The problem is which I'm sure you are aware is the USB apple keyboard does not work! I have tried unplugging but no joy

I am using Win XP SP2 and have tried Win XP SP3 both stand alone copies which is what is recommended

Any ideas please
Lee

I never knew that there would be a problem with the Apple USB keyboard. I think there might be a problem with the wireless keyboard, but I can't see how a wired keyboard wouldn't work.

All that you had to do was use the slim keyboard?
