    Hello all, this is my first post here and hope someone can help me.

    I have a Mac Mini bought in 2005. It has Tiger OS. When I turn it on a white screen appears with the Mac symbol and a wheel continues to rotate and nothing happens.

    I’ve read some similar problems saying to select keys like Apple + Alt + P + R but I’m using a Non-Mac Keyboard so I don’t have the (Apple) key.

    Can someone guide me in the right direction?

    Thanks

    If it is a Windows keyboard, the Windows key (the one with the waving flag) is the equivalent of the Apple (Command) key.

    thanks spinnerlys for a speedy reply.

    I tried what you said but nothing happens.

    got any other tricks up your sleeve?

    Thanks

    spinnerlys, thanks for your help.
