Install 10.3 on a 1.5 GHz Mac mini
Authored by: garroth on Jan 20, '06 11:52:50AM

I can't imagine why there would be any problems with this hint. The first mini's to come out had 10.3 installed. I got one of these just 2 weeks before 10.4 was released. So they shouldn't have any problem running 10.3.

Install 10.3 on a 1.5 GHz Mac mini

This is a brand new Mac mini with the "stealth upgrade" specs (box says 1.42 GHz, "About this Mac" says 1.5 GHz). I called Apple for tech support and after looking at my serial number, they told me that 10.3 was unsupported for this hardware, they were surprised that I got it to work. In particular, it has a different video circuit and more video RAM than the early minis.

I'm not sure that I get this. When was 1.5ghz Mini released? I only see a 1.42ghz Mini??

1.5 GHz Mac mini (stealth upgrade)

See Stealth Upgrade.

I went into an Apple Store, bought a mini and had them boot it at the Genius bar. My plan was to pay the 10% restocking fee if it wasn't the new model, but it was: better video, better burner, faster.
