    hi everyone,

    i tried to install windows 7 on my mac mini today, it all went though well until the black screen with "press any key to boot from CD or DVD". I tried to restart the mac mini and press alt/option or even the apple logo key, nothing happen while it's starting :( i tried reinstalling the OS X disk too, but it failed. http://support.apple.com/kb/TS3173 <--- i tried this too, but it doesn't work.
    if i restart it and put the windows 7 disk in, it shows up a black screen with "press any key to boot from CD or DVD".

    Please help me :(:(

    Does your keyboard have an "any" key? If not then you are sorely out of luck until you get one that does :(

    (On a slightly more serious note, what type of Mac Mini do you have?)

    Have you checked the windows disc on another computer? If so, did it work properly on that computer?
