Experiencing a Mac Mini failure - > 1/2 hour to startup,
Booting MacMini from cold start with no attached peripherals with LAN (works OK) after 45 minutes still no startup screen.
Seems I have a problem here which I propose to solve with another MacMini to which I will transfer contents from Time Machine (or Acronis True Image backup) and expect to start work again. I have a another networked MacMini which has most of the files from failed unit.
Can I reformat failed MacMini to see if software failure is the problem? If, so how?
Other ideas welcome!
