Hi, a friend of mine just got his first Mac, a Mac Mini. I also thought the boot screen was white with an Apple logo (don't own a mac yet :(, trying to save up for one though!). Is this not the case on the Mac Mini or in Yosemite or something like that? All help is appreciated :)

On more recent Macs, the boot screen is black with a white Apple logo. I think they changed around 2011 or 2012 for most models.

White screen with dark grey Apple on my 2012 Mini.

... and the exact opposite on my daughters (black screen/white apple) 2013 Air.
