    Hi guys,

    first post here. just received my new mini yesterday and have been trying to get boot camp installed. everytime i try to install it, it says "please update your system software before running bootcamp".

    I've clicked on the blue apple (top left of screen) and done the software update. Here's the specs:

    Hardware Overview:

    Machine Name: Mac mini
    Machine Model: Macmini1,1
    Processor Name: Intel Core Duo
    Processor Speed: 1.66 GHz
    Number Of Processors: 1
    Total Number Of Cores: 2
    L2 Cache (per processor): 2 MB
    Memory: 1 GB
    Bus Speed: 667 MHz
    Boot ROM Version: MM11.0055.B08
    SMC Version: 1.3f4
    Serial Number: VM64504TW0C

    everything seems in order (checked the Boot ROM version and SMC version on the website, all seems up to date). I'm running OSX 10.4.8.

    i first tried installing boot camp and it gave me the "update" error. so i did the update process, rebooted the computer the right way and everything, ran boot camp again and it's like it's not registering the update..

    any suggestions?

    sorry - should have said. I've tried 1.1.1 (i think it was that one) and 1.1.2.

    Both do the same thing
