I find myself in a rather peculiar situation, even given the wealth of information on the web. I seem to be the only person in the world who has successfully switched over to snow leopard on my mini, and deleted the entire windows partition.
now, i want to put windows 7 on the mini (for which i have two separate ISOs), but im labouring under the disadvantage of having no access to a windows computer, no cd drive, and a mac that isnt really a mac so i can't use bootcamp.
in my tries to make a bootable usb stick with my ISOs i contintually received this message on boot of the usb stick:
PXE-E61: Media test failure, check cable
PXE-M0F: Exiting PXE ROM.
Operating System not found
methods ive used: dd if=/ of=/. format with disk utility as master boot record and copy the iso contents. both gave that same result with two different ISO files so i doubt it's the ISOs.
any ideas from the unix people on the site? and speaking of unix, is there any way i can do this thru a linux distro. ive got some experience with ubuntu but that got deleted in my frenzy to put os x on here. thanks for any help.
