Ok so i keep reading that to boot from the cd/dvd hold the "C" while booting, this not do anything for me. I then tried to hold "ctrl+alt+shift+delete" seemed to do nothing then i hit "F1" and then the "ctrl+alt+shift+delete" again then the "F1" not in any order just randomly hitting them hoping to get something, well this screen came up with a reload style arrow button and a next style arrow button, i hit both of them and nothing happens. any advice? i first started to boot from cd because it was originally showing this:
I am new to mac and am using a windows based keyboard on this mini.

From the looks of it...if you get a folder with a question mark...that means that it can't find the OS. Which means something is wrong with the HDD.
Have you just tried holding down the alt/option key?
