New Mac Mini stuck on bootup

931 Views 2 Replies 2 Participants Last post by  hhk
Just set up a new, refurbed Mac Mini, downloaded software updates and now it won't start.

I was stuck on the thermometer screen with no thermometer. I safe booted and removed the only Login app - iTunes Helper. I rebooted and now the thermometer moves all the way to the end and then nothing.

Any ideas?

If you haven't stored any data on it yet, boot from the Install Disc 1 and do an "Erase and Install."
After much Googling, I found a workaround. If you start the Mini with the monitor off, it starts up just fine. Not an ideal solution obviously and there's something wrong with 10.4.10.

I'm going to re-install and upgrade to 10.4.9, the last known good release.
