    Hello, are you now at, (the highest yours goes)...


    Mac mini (Mid 2010) Macmini4,1

    MM41.0042.B03 (EFI 1.5)



    One possble solution here, with maybe alt key to boot your Windows installer instead of the c key...

    I just installed it today (twice actually, after changing my mind about something) so I can tell you how to do it. What I did was completely ignore Boot Camp and used Disk Utility to format the intended Windows drive as FAT32/Master Boot Record. Then I just rebooted with C held down and the Windows 7 CD took care of the rest.

    I have a 2009 Mac Pro so all my drivers etc were on my OS disc. If you need to burn the drivers, by all means use Boot Camp just for that part

    I got a warning in Windows 7 that Boot Camp had issues with the RC but it has been rock solid so far.
