Please Help Me Reinstall OS X - 12-09-2010, 08:36 AM
I recently broke my mini (I Totally Hosed My Display) and am desperately keen to get OS 10.5.8 back up and running.
I can boot into single-user mode (i.e. command prompt), but can't seem to boot off my USB drive, which I prepared with NetBookMaker 8.2 (same version that I originally used to install OS X).
I have changed the BIOS so that the USB should be booted from first, but I don't think it's being seen by the system.
Can I mount it when in single-user mode?
I think my installation is fine, except that a graphics driver or something got borked by using SwitchResX. It would be awesome if I could just reinstall the graphics drivers/kexts somehow...
Any help/suggestions are most welcome!

What about connecting another monitor and setting the Mini's screen back to zero from there?
