    I work for a higher education institute and we are looking into getting new Macs this coming summer, we've recently purchased two 2009 Mac mini's and I imaged them with our stock Mac clone (10.5.6). Obviously due to recent hardware changes it didn't work perfectly (no gui boot) but it did function, I just wanted to know if there was a way of updating key components to make it work perfectly so that I can integrate it instead of having to create a complete new clone?

    I typically run the installer over it (deselect everything). Then re-image it. it will still boot on all the older machines. If you want to look through the package there is an installer called CPUxxxxx.pkg in this directory: "/Volumes/Mac OS X Install DVD/System/Installation/Packages". Installing that will install all the specific files and drivers the host computer needs.

    I feel so dumb, I never really thought of doing that.
