    What do you mean "it hasn't worked"? What error messages are you getting? Can you boot from the install disk?

    You have to provide better information if you want help. Specifics are important or people will not waste time trying to guess.

    Which mini are we talking about? What CPU, Ram, etc.

    Are you installing from the internal DVD drive? Are you using the retail DVD or trying to use a system DVD from another Mac. What is this about some USB drive.

    You need to explain exactly what you are doing step by step.
