Folks in this forum generally frown on buying Minis with OS X preloaded. It's a copyright violation and, if you haven't learned how to install OS X yourself, you're just likely to get into trouble sooner or later. Anyway, that has no bearing on the battery issue.

As you have found, some non-Dell batteries cause the Mini to complain. Some don't. Sometimes you can recover by removing and installing the battery while plugged in.
