    MP 1,1-5,1 Mojave 2020-006 bricked my 5,1?

    Mac Mini 2010 won't boot

    After migrating from a Mac Mini 2009 (OS X El Capitan) to a newer one (OS X Mountain Lion), we restarted it, and it's not booting. We already tried booting with Cmd-S and Cmd-R. Cmd-R doesn't work, because this mac is refurbished and has no recovery HD. Please help!
