Default POST - Power On Self Test Messages at boot time?? - 11-06-2008, 06:37 AM

Of course, I am booting mac os x on my dell mini and I want to see the POST messages but the loader flashes the results of the POST so fast, I can't read a single line.. Does anyone know how to see the POST result messages?? In other words, stop the boot process so I can read the messages??

Thanks.. Love the mini with osx on it... Thanks to all who did this awesome work!!

Usually Pause (Break) key does that, I guess. But you can't find it in Mini 9, so you may have to connect an USB keyboard?
