Still having problems. Holding down the R key, but same ? folder. Could it be my wireless keyboard?


Do you have a USB keyboard? Try that.


The R Key won't work here as you don't have a recovery partition setup on the new HD for this to work. You need a working OS on a bootable drive to then setup the OS over the internet (Mavericks).


That's what the guy at the genius bar said. I do have an external that has my time machine saved on it.


Sorry a TimeMachine backup drive that does not have a functional working OS setup on its own won't work either. The TM files in them self are not bootable.

The question mark (?) implies your HD does not have the system files (or Blessed as the booting volume).

Do you have the grey recovery CD/DVD that came with the system? If you do try restarting your system running off of it. Follow this Apple TN on the Startup key combinations for Intel-based Macs.

If you don't have the CD/DVD disks, you can also try starting up your mini in Target mode and connecting it via a FireWire cable to a second Mac. To try to setup your HD that way.

Lastly make sure you're using the correct OS-X version for your system.

connect an ethernet cable (if possible) and hold down the option key and r at the same time- if it doesn't work, Apple geniuses can help.

the option key on it's own brings up bootable storage devices connected to your mac - try that and see if anything comes up, it allows you to set up wi-fi with the efi firmware, too.

@weeowey - This is an older model that does not have internet recovery services which is what you were thinking by holding the Option & R keys at the same time. This also only works when you have internet connectivity from your system and have a newer system.
