    Lightbulb Mac Mini Won't Fully Boot
    mac mini 1.42g4 1gb 80gb sd ap bt - usa Late 2005 model

    It boots to the white screen with the gray apple and no further.

    No gray spinning circle of dashes.

    I put in:
    Mac OS x Install Disk 1
    and Apple Hardware Test

    And i held down C on boot. It gave me this:

    "Bundled software cannot be installed on this computer"

    I hooked it up with a firewire to another mac of ours and the hdd mounted.

    Is the OSX Install DVD the one that came with the Mini? If not what machine did the disk come with?

    It is a disk that came with the mac mini. We have 3 mac mini(s) here, the one which has frozen, one that is the same model bought on the same day at the same place as the one that has frozen, and the other is a newer dual core mac mini.

    The disk that i am using is from one of them. I'm pretty sure it is from one of the 2 older mac minis.

    The disk came with one of the systems.

    The disk says:
    Mac OS version 10.3.7
    AHT version1.0
    Disk versioon 1.1

    I am glad to answer any other questions or do whatever you request of me.

    I was given 2 other disks and one of the other disks worked. Thank you for your help.
