Hello I have an old Mac Mini (mid 2007) at the office that only has 1GB RAM. I need to set this machine up as a secondary PC running Windows on another network. The reason is that I need to run a critical app that needs the latest Oracle Java 7, something that is not possible on OSX Snow Leopard. I cannot install Lion on the mini because the RAM restrictions (needs minimum 2GB) and don't want to tinkle on upgrading the RAM. The mini has all the firmware updates that Apple produced for it. The machine does not have any OS at the moment. I have booted the mini from an OSX Lion USB install disk and configured the hard disk into one MBR partition formatted as Windows FAT using disk utyl. I am trying to install W7 without first needing to reinstall OSX Snow Leopard and going through the bootcamp process as I plan to erase OSX afterwards anyway. What I found is that the mini does not see the USB disk that holds the W7 install on boot (I have already tested that this W7 USB install disk works on other PCs). Is there a way to install W7 from a USB pen in this mac mini as it is or do I definitely need to go through bootcamp? Thanks.
