Make the Mini think it's a MacBook Air for remote disc use - 03-15-2009, 09:13 PM
I found this post on a blog geared toward eee-Hackintosh users, but it works GREAT on my Dell Mini 9 Hackintosh as well. Now my Mini 9 thinks it's a MacBook Air and can access CDs/DVDs on my remote desktop Mac on my wifi network. I installed iWork that way last night without a hitch. Here are the instructions on that blog:

(If this has been already posted to this board, I offer my apologies as an over-enthusiastic newcomer who managed not to find it using search.)
P.S. Also works with CD/DVD drives attached to remote Windows machines (with a Win download from Apple).
