MacMini won't install Boot Camp?

Hi guys,

first post here. just received my new mini yesterday and have been trying to get boot camp installed. everytime i try to install it, it says "please update your system software before running bootcamp".

I've clicked on the blue apple (top left of screen) and done the software update. Here's the specs:

Hardware Overview:

Machine Name: Mac mini
Machine Model: Macmini1,1
Processor Name: Intel Core Duo
Processor Speed: 1.66 GHz
Number Of Processors: 1
Total Number Of Cores: 2
L2 Cache (per processor): 2 MB
Memory: 1 GB
Bus Speed: 667 MHz
Boot ROM Version: MM11.0055.B08
SMC Version: 1.3f4
Serial Number: VM64504TW0C

everything seems in order (checked the Boot ROM version and SMC version on the website, all seems up to date). I'm running OSX 10.4.8. I've tried 1.1.1 and 1.1.2 versions of Boot Camp.

i first tried installing boot camp and it gave me the "update" error. so i did the update process, rebooted the computer the right way and everything, ran boot camp again and it's like it's not registering the update..

any suggestions?


QUOTE Thanks
