    A friend has given us a Mac Mini 1 (I assume - it's old) and I am trying to install Snow Leopard on it. The problem is that I can't see the entire screen (Command+Option+- doesn't work) so I cannot find the continue buttons to finish up the install. HELP!!!

    Here is a picture of where I am stuck. Using the keyboard or mouse clicking everywhere will not work.

    Does that monitor have any video adjustment buttons? Give then a try to adjust the image.

    Have you tried a simple press to the return key?

    Double click on the HDD icon?

    I have tried to adjust the TV settings without luck.

    I have tried the return key. It works on selecting the language but that's about it.

    If you double click on the HDD icon it just brings up preferences (install additional fonts, etc etc).

    try tab then enter, it should move the cursor over to the continue button which you can't see.. I know it's at the bottom right corner

    Obviously if you don't have another monitor, can you connect the mini to another Mac and do the installation from the other Mac?
