You are bidding on a Mac Mini model A1103 that is being sold for parts. This item comes with a working power supply, working remote, VGA video adapter and the Mac Mini. The Mini itself powers on and starts to boot the OS, but I think the hard drive is bad. It always starts to boot but then drops the Mac OS boot and goes to a Unix login screen. I've tried to reformat the drive by starting from a CD, but the process never completes and it always drops out to a Unix screen. It could be a logic board problem, but I haven't tried to remove the hard drive and boot from a CD. When I did a firewire connection to the Mini from another machine, the drive shows up as a valid device, but Disk Utils will not unmount the disk and will not reformat it. Other disk utilities also fail to reformat the drive, which leads me to believe it is a hard disk problem. It acts as though the partition map is blown away which might be why the boot from the CD fails as well. The machine can be used as parts or you might just be able to replace the hard drive and get it working again.
