I bought a macmini (A1283) at a local auction a few days ago. I brought it home to find no OSX installed on it.

My friend burned me a copy of Snow Leapord so that I could get OSX installed. I boot it up with the DVD in it and hold down the C button but nothing seems to happen. I just get a blank grey screen with no apple logo. Is there something I am missing?

I had a macbook pro several years ago but I dont remember everything. Could use the help.

Thanks

Yeahhh...we don't discuss or endorse this sort of thing at Mac-Forums. Stop being so cheap...and purchase the official $29 Snow Leopard install disk from the Apple Store!
