Default Mini 9 Installation Problem - 05-22-2010, 04:05 AM


I'm trying to install Snow Leopard on my Mini. I've read several guides and thought I had a nice grasp on the concept. I got an IDE to USB cable and burned the DellMiniBoot to a CD. It's becoming a hit or miss after selecting the CD/DVD after hitting 0. But when it loads, I get to the screen where it says "boot" and I have to enter "9f", but when I tried swapping the boot cd for OS X, entering 9f and stuff, it just shows a _ under that and doesn't do anything.

I have a 2GB and an 8GB flash drive, should I use those instead of the CD and DVD? I have access to a Mac as well, for Disk Utility or whatever.
