Trying to install Windows 8 on a 2007 Macmini 2,1.
It's actually a pretty good os for a device hooked to a HDTV, the large icons and full screen apps work well.

Got it going but no audio, tried a bunch of drivers.

Anyone know what driver is needed should work with the Win 7 driver...

How is the mini connected to the hdtv? I ask because the video output on 2,1 mini wouldn't carry sound. So I imagine you have it connected in some other way.

Headphone / line out... On the set I can select the HDMI audio source.

Test your audio line out with headphones or portable speakers. If you hear sound then the problem is with the tv or cable not the mini.
