Hello to all the MyDellMini forum legends.
I purchased my Dell Mini 10v 1 year ago, installed OS 10.6.3 on it and have had success updating to OS 10.6.4
I left it there as I got a MacBook in the mean time (due to the MacMini)
Over the year I gathered a lot of information on the MacMini and I set up a home network to transfer the files to the MacBook.
During this transfer the MacBook and the MacMini stopped transferring for about 3 minutes and then the MacMini ran really at a snails pace. I thought it to be due to overheating, so I switched it off, thinking I will continue the next day.
Here endith the joy.
It has been two weeks and with my little knowledge on the true workings of the MAC OS, I have not been able to get the MacMini back to life.
It starts up, displays the apple logo and the circle beneath it (timer) never stops.
I have tried safe boot, command strings and the like.
I give up. What I would like to do is retrieve the data from the MacMini if possible. It is not a must, but a "would like"
Do any of you have any wisdom on how I can retrieve the data from the MacMini without removing the drive?
Thanks in advance and apologies for the wall of text.
