Yes I was using it and started the Win7 install when it identified the partitions it couldn't install to due to lack of free space.
It looks like I should have paid more attention. I guess it needed almost 6GB and my SSD
is only 4GB so when I deleted partitions and reformatted I still don't have enough space and now I apparently don't have any drivers to operate the DVD for Boot-up.
This would be true for any reformatted drive, so how do I get the mini to accept the driver so it will boot from the DVD?
For now I can go back to Umbutu (I have the boot DVD and have used it several times before to start anew) until I can get a larger SSD
installed (16GB or 32GB). But somehow I need to get the mini to boot from the DVD.
