Ok, so I replaced a HDD on my MacMini for a brand new OCZ SSD. I still have the original Snow Leopard install discs....How do I install the OS? How do I go to BIOS? How do I go to install screen? Wich button do I press???????????

Is this a hackintosh? Can I securely make the updates?
QUOTE Thanks

Install Leopard
Than update to 10.6.8 (disregard all other updates except combined command things)
Then download Lion from app store or else where
Then your good to go.

Just stick your old HDD in a USB enclosure, boot from that with the option key at startup, format your SSD, and restore the old drive to your SSD with Disk Utility. Job done.
