Odd one for anyone to shine a light on. I have a retail copy of 10.6 Server, and I'm struggling to install it.
I have two Mac minis, both are the Mac mini 3,1 model. First is a 2GHz C2D with 2GB of RAM, second is a 2.26GHz C2D with 8GB of RAM.
Both machines can install and run 10.6 client without a problem.
- 2GHz/2GB Mac mini CAN install 10.6 Server
- 2.26GHz/8GB Mac mini CANNOT install 10.6 Server
Both the same model number, the one with better specifications gives me the "Mac OS X cannot be installed on this computer" message when I boot the installer. I'm using a 10.6.4 installation disc.
Anyone have any ideas? (Please note I want 10.6 server on one machine, not both - but the better spec Mac mini would be best).
Install 10.6.4 Server on the Mac mini 2GHz, update to 10.6.8 and then clone it to the other Mac mini.
For this you can boot the other Mac mini into target mode (Press "t" at startup) and clone direct to it with e.g. CarbonCopyCloner.
