[OT] mac mini minimum OS?


    Jan 24 2006 | 2:16 pm
    Hi all.
    A friend of mine needs to use a Mac mini for a multimedia installation. The software he uses needs 10.3.x. I known (from Apple- History.com) that the "Rev. A" Mac mini (January 2005) shipped with 10.3.7, so, no problem. But the latest Mac mini "unofficial" releases from Apple (July 2005 and on) seem to ship with 10.4. Does anybody have one of this latest machines and can confirm that they can boot 10.3.7-9?
    Thanks.

      Haven't tried it myself, but this was posted on macosxhints.com a couple of days back. Could help I imagine...

      I have bought a mini-Mac for an exhitbition last year October. By the time, it shipped with MacOS 10.3 preinstalled and a DVD bundled to upgrade to MacOS 10.4 . So, I think it should be fine to use old version OS on the shipping machine. You may have a check with your local store. By the way, I am buying it at Hong Kong.
