Thank you for the responses. Using OS X 10.5.5 on a PowerBook, could you please direct me to a way to make an external HD Bootable? I was recently messing around with the HD and a Ubuntu.ISO build, and was unable to get the drive to be read with Mac OS Extended(Journaled) by the Mini, I was successful with a MS-DOS (FAT), not in getting the Mini to boot, but but just mounting on the Mini without a problem.
I apologize for the repeated response, and queries regarding the same topic, I just would prefer to get this accomplished with as little bumps in the road as possible. I have an 2 .ISO image (OS X and Ubuntu), would I just put that in the HD, plug into Mini, and start holding 0, select the external drive, and it will boot into .ISO? Or, using disk utility would i have to restore with the .ISO as the image to place on the drive? My main question is how to make a drive bootable in OS X before attempting the install on the Mini. Also, how would I go about loading the Drive with the necessary info?
Thank you for any assistance in advance, your help thus far has been much appreciated!
