Re: HELP... Can't boot from external drive - 01-14-2009, 08:38 PM
Hopefully you guys got this one figured out already, but I just got my mini so I thought I would chime in.
The xbox external hd dvd drive worked fine for me by selecting the CD-DVD option from boot at the POST screen. It didn't work the first time, so I did a couple of things that may or may not have helped, but couldn't hurt to try.
I upgraded my BIOS to the A3 - details in this thread http://mydellmini.com/forum/a03-firm...sed-t1765.html
I also made sure that I plugged the usb cable into the port on the left of the mini closest to the power cable. I'm not sure if this affected anything, but I based this off of the video someone on the forum posted about installing osX on the mini.
Hope this helps.
