Don't know about 10.0 - that was strictly a beta trial version so I guess you mean something different?

If late model go to System Preferences>Startup Disk and ensure the OS is selected and NOT network or traget mode. Let's know how you get on please?

No keyboard? Any USB keyboard will do the trick. Connect and then go to System Preferences and go from there.

Have you tried just leaving the password field blank and then hit enter?
If you have the install disk, you can use it to reset the password, if needed.

When all else fails, try everything!

You have troubles..........

Take it back to whoever 'serviced' it and tell them your problems. Not pulling our whatsits are you? All minis came with keyboards (and mice).
