Just purchased an iMac to replace my trusty MacMini. Tried following Apple's migration assistant instructions to transfer files from the Mini to the new machine, but the process kept hanging. One post I read suggested reinstalling the operating system on the Mac Mini, which I did. Now the machine boots up and asks me for a password, but when I enter what I was using before, the login fails. I've tried EVERYTHING to make my Mini operate again. I've put the Leopard install DVD in the optical drive and restarted the machine while holding various keys down, including "C;" "D;" and the "option" key. I've also pressed various combinations of keys during reboot, but nothing changes. I always just get the password window, but I have no idea what password will work. I can enter passwords, so I know the keyboard works, it's just that I can't boot from the disc or get past the &*($W password screen. Any thoughts? Are there any "magic" command key operations that will free my Mini from the clutches of whatever has grabbed it?
