    In the previous post you said:

    "This is an installer, if you had read the OP."

     

    Here is the original post.  Where does it say "installer" anywhere???

    I'm using a mac mini with a windows USB keyboard.  There is NO OSX on this machine- I added a new hard drive later and just partitioned it for windows.

     

    I'm trying to find the hotkey combination to boot the system from USB.

     

    Does anyone know how I can do this?

    or in the topic.  From this post it appears you are booting Windows,

    not a Windows installer.

     

    You should not be so sensitive yourself.

    It also doesn't say that I'm booting windows.  That's because what I'm booting is irrelevant to the question.

     

    This thread is totally off topic now.  I'm going to assume the answer is there is no way to do what I am asking about.

    Hello, I think on a Mac it is relevant, it has no BIOS like a PC does.

     

    There are ways to try to make a Mac boot from OSX from USB that normally can't boot OSX from USB, but that is for old PPc Macs that can't run Windows anyway.

    I'm going to assume the answer is there is no way to do what I am asking about.

    The only way I know to Install Windows 7 on a Mac is by having OSX installed & using Boot Camp, or having OSX installed & using one of the Many virtual emulators.
