    mac mini osx install questions
    Having worked with Linux and Windows i am used to working with drivers when installing an OS on a machine. My question is do the discs that came with the mac mini have all the appropraite drivers on them?

    Also, is there anything i need to know about installing on a mac mini?

    I only ask all of this because the google option did not bring anything up directly no matter how many times i tried i came up with nothing.

    If you have the grey discs that came with that Mac Mini, just pop it in and it will install all the necessary pieces without needing you to specifically go and download any extra drivers..that's not how Macs work..

    Regards

    Other than Google (which turned up lots of useful answers), don't forget about Apple's support page.
