Default osx blind installation on mini 10v - 07-09-2009, 02:26 AM

I just tested this on a mac mini (a real one). I'll try it out a little later on my mini 10v, but it seems worth sharing. This is the sequence of tabs and spaces to install when you can't see the buttons. I've numbered the windows and put the sequence of tabs and spaces in <>s.

1. language <enter>
2. Welcome window <2 tabs, space>
3. Agreement <4 tabs, space>
4. Destination <double-click on the drive you want>
5. Installation choices (upgrade, erase, etc) <enter>
6. Destination (again) <space>
7. Summary - to customize: <space>
8. Customize pop-up menu: deselect all the extras, then <enter>
9. Summary (again) <2 tabs, space>

Hope this helps some of you out there who - like me - can't see a thing. Many thanks to all those like anguish and meklort and the rest for your hard work.

Thank God they brought the screen resolution up to 1024x600. Some of the buttons were clipped a little bit for me, but everything was visible.
