Hello everyone, my first post here and I need some wisdom from you guys! I bought an old Intel Core Solo Mac mini with only 512 MB of RAM and I'm wondering what OS to install on it and how that will work. I think its HD is wiped (I'm waiting for it to arrive), so I'll have to install something on it. I'd just go with Snow Leopard, but since this has only 512 MB of RAM, I guess that's out. Upgrading the RAM myself is also out, since I'm not competent enough to do the upgrade and I don't want to pay someone else to do it. That leaves me with Tiger (which these Minis shipped with) and Leopard. Either will work for me, but Leopard would be preferable. I have the upgrade disk for Leopard, which I believe supports Intel, but it's the upgrade and requires "proof" of Tiger to install. I believe that if you have an external drive with Tiger on it, or a copy of the Tiger DVD, that will "qualify" you for the Leopard upgrade? Am I remembering correctly? I am pretty sure I have an old firewire drive with Tiger on it somewhere (it's a PPC-based installation), and I also have a (PPC only) copy of Tiger on DVD. Would these allow my Leopard upgrade to install, or do I need to go some other route? Thank you for any suggestions or advice you can give me!
