    Can i do this with a USB or do i need a CD?

    The mini has no Cd drive ...

    I don't know because I have not tried it. Though I am curious of the outcome because I am planning to add a M4 in my Mac mini.

    I suspect that it should work (a bootable USB instead of a CD) because the only difference , in my eyes is the means of transfer. However to be on the safe side email Crucial and see what they say.

    I think it's CD only - at least that is the easiest way. You could buy the Apple CD drive - I think the mini is programmed to see that as an internal device.

    I flashed it with an USB stick. It went very smooth!

    I used these instruction:

    And then press cmd +c or option +c (I cannot remember which one it was :eek:) and follow the instructions on the screen again. Easypeasy:)
