    Hi guys, I just been trying to upgrade my Mac Mini 1.83 CD
    I upgraded the ram and HD following this procedure:

    the HD is a 500gb Seagate Momentus 2.5" SATA 7200rpm 16MB Cache HD

    the ram is SODIMM DDRII PC5300 667MHz


    Help ASAP would be greatly appreciated (I'm now forced to type this on a PC :eek: )

    You get a flashing ? because there is no startup volume on your new drive. Insert the computer's restore disk and boot while holding the C key. Run through the installer, then reboot.
