I just got a MacMini set it up, and it said I have to update iTunes. Did that and then it rebooted and now it's been stuck on the boot logo with the gear for about 2 hours so I tried rebooting it and it does not get passed this boot screen... I'm a pc guy so kinda lost here.... What do I do??

(using my pc screen keyboard and mouse)

I'm going to leave it on over night and hope it loads over the hours...


Is there any reset shortcut?

Are you near an Apple Store, independent Apple vendor, or Apple type service place?

He is correct take it to a Apple provider and see what is happening with your mac mini asap.

I think maybe the USB chip is just formatted wrong. I've been using it on my pc for a while. But now trying to copy from Mac to USB it will not let me..

Do I have to format the USB differently?

You shouldn't have trouble, but how is the drive formatted?

NTFS and FAT 32 should work unless something is wrong with the stick. I would try offloading the files to the PC then reformatting the drive to FAT 32. Then upload them to the stick and try it again.

I believe you can not write to NTFS, unless something has changed. You can write to FAT though.
