So I recently got turned on to this machine, and I'm going to get one (as soon as the outlet recovers from the latest coupon), but I have a few general questions.
I've been doing some reading on doing a dual boot setup and while I know my way around a computer (been a tech for over 12 years), I don't feel like going through the hassle of setting two OS's up on a single SSD
. Basically, the plan is to install OSX on an upgraded Runcore and then install a simple XP load on an SDHC card for the SOLE purpose of GPS navigation (thanks to that brilliant internal GPS mod). Is this even possible? Can you load an OS on to an SDHC card and boot from it?
On the external optical drive. I have a SATA/USB adapter and a full size SATA DVDRW drive sitting around. it performs flawlessly as an external drive in windows.....but....can I use that for the OS installs on the Mini or do I need to consider buying a specific external drive?
I'm ready for the outlet to catch up though. I've already bought the 2GB DDR stick and a 16GB SDHC card. This week will probably order the upgraded SSD
Thx for the awesome forum, and the help.
