    Please Help.

    I got a mac mini 2006 1.66 Ghz core duo with 2 GB of ram for 50 dollars.
    So I did a clean installation of snow leopard and upgraded it to 10.6.8.

    Then I tried to use boot camp 3.0.4 to install windows 7 32 bit in another partition. Boot camp could divide the hard disk smoothly and asked me to put it windows 7 cd then clicked next. I followed the instruction but it never boot up from window CD.

    I am not quite sure why it could not boot from windows 7 cd.

    I also tried to press "C- key " at the start to force it to boot from cd.
    what it always happened was a white screen for a while then a folder with question mark.

    P.S. the internal cd drive was not working. So I use asus external cd drive.

    Thank you so much
