    Question Mac Mini first startup issue
    Hey guys, i`ve just bought the new Mac Mini, first Mac i have besides the iphone, i`ve also bought the apple keyboard and track pad, both wireless. When i first turned on my Mac Mini it does not get into the wizard to startup, it simply stops on a screen that looks like a desktop with a green switch to be pushed up as per a arrow instruction. pls see the image below:

    I need a help to understand what it means and get to use my Mac Mini.

    Is it a problem that i need to go back to Apple Store?

    thanks in advance.

    It's looking for the wireless mouse and asking you to turn it on.

    Did you just purchase the Mini and using your own keyboard and mouse? What Floraneg said is right, it's looking for a mouse.

    What mouse and keyboard do you have? Are they USB or Wireless? If USB are the plugged in?
