First thing to check is to try booting with DVD with original drive
installed by holding down the C key. If that doesn't work, then
reboot with the original drive and DVD and hold down the option key.
Wait until the accessible volumes appear on the screen.
If the first doesn't work and the DVD as a choice does not appear
in the second test, then boot from the original hard drive and in
system profiler, see if the DVD/CD drive is present.
This can narrow down if you have a bad DVD or a DVD drive problem.
As for the other hard drive, there can be a variety of reasons why it doesn't
boot, one of which is that it has a version of the OS older than what
the Mini supports.
