i'm trying to install s.l.server on my macmini2,1 yeahyeah, not a hackintosh, but i upgraded to c2d, & upgraded firmware, and it runs 64 bit, even tho it's 32bit efi.


while the dvd successfully installs  onto a usb sdd, on reboot to complete setup it fails, showing the no-access symbol.


so is there a simple textfile that i can poke "macmini2,1" into, or is this a 32efi problem? unfortunately all i can find are boot.efi for later osx. any ideas?


Aha! https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Mac_mini2-1you cannot boot from USB. I think you may have to put a hard drive inside. I only worked on one of these and the repair manual said to use a flexible metal putty knife and actually explained what grade of sand paper to use to sharpen the one side and at what angle. It worked made a cracking sound similar to those old Bondi Blue iMacs that I had worked on! I think the drive is SATA so if the USB drive can be taken apart you could put it inside as I am assuming you put the drive in side a USB case.
