Some possible situations:
1) Is your Mini New?? Have your Partitioned your HD? one partition??
If you have installed OS X without repartition your HD, your Mini will never boot. Out of the box, your Hd has 2 partitions, 1) Diagnostic and 2) Windows or Ubantu. Only 1 partition should be present. If this is your case, you should start from scratch.
2) you had a different version of OS X and it was installed with Boot123 method. or problem with bootloader.
Boot your mini9 and, after the Dell Logo and before the blue bar disappears, press the CTRL key. Type "-x
" without quotation. you should see something like this "boot: -x
" at the lower left corner of your screen. and press enter. This will/should boot your mini in "safe" mode. It will take a while to load. (*)When/if your mini is up and running, open applications folder and execute NBI (NetBootInstaller).
Make sure that you select Target: your HD, Chamaleon bootloader, Extentions, DSTS and show Extra. Once it is done reboot mini and cross your finger. If your mini is running repeat the process from here (*)
Hope this help
