Default Boot fails... - 04-12-2009, 03:36 AM

My mini does not boot. I can get it to boot with the dellminiboot usb stick if I do the -f flag on my 81 drive. But if I just let it boot, it goes to an all black screen that says boot0: MBR then under that it says boot0: error.

Any ideas?...

Try running the dellefi and select "reinstall boot"

I had a problem that sounds the same. I ended up doing another complete install. ... 09&p=51488

I still keep my fingers crossed when I get a system or application freeze. I need to get an image of my install and then use time machine for new file recovery.

These are definitely not Apple hardware.
