Hi,

Is it possible to boot into Tiger without a keyboard and mouse?

I want to connect to a Mac mini with Apple Remote Desktop so have no need for a keyboard or mouse but it insists on searching for them and not going any further once it realises they're not there.

I just want it to ignore the fact that they're not present.

Thanks,
Matt


Mac mini, 1.42GHz, 512MB RAM Mac OS X (10.4.3)

    Yes

    If this is the initial setup of the mini, then they need to be connected. Otherwise no, you don't need them.

    Can you tell me how to do it, because when I try to boot it without a keyboard and mouse it gets stuck looking for them.

    This isn't the initial setup.

    Thanks,
    Matt

    Ok, I figured it out.

    The bluetooth settings in system preferences were set to search for a keyboard.

    So I unchecked the "Open Bluetooth Setup Assistant at startup when no input device is present" setting.
