    Does the Mid 2010 Mac Mini run default in 64 bit mode? or do you have to hold down 6 and 4 to have it run in 64 bit mode..
    Searched on the forum and couldn't find a answer;

    AFAIK, all Macs boot into 32-bit by default. Only Xserve boots into 64-bit by default

    i believe the 2010 mac mini server boots into 64-bit kernel mode by default. as well as the latest mac pro.

    A regular Mini runs 32Bit by default, but you can make it boot in 64Bit-mode by default, without pressing 6 and 4.

    The Mini Server boots into 64Bit-mode, so does the XServe, and I guess the MacPro.
