Mini 10.6.3 Install discs on (sort of) old Mini
 
I lost my install discs awhile ago and found a good deal online for a new set of original OS X Mini 10.6.3 installation discs. My mini is a 2 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo that I bought in May of '09. Does anyone know if there will be a compatibility issue if I try and use the newer discs? Any help appreciated, thanks.

There is a very good chance you will have compatibility issues.

You would be much better off just purchasing the $29 Snow Leopard (10.6) install disk at the Apple Store.

As Nick suggests they will probably not install being from a different model Mini by a long shot. Original System Install discs, the silver/grey type, are extremely model specific. Your Mini came with OS X.4.10.

ok, thanks. apparently if you don't have applecare you can't even talk to someone at apple (without paying a fee) i wonder if i'll even be able to get replacements...

Do you have an Apple Store local to you? If so, try going in and see if they might help.
