    It’s amazing how primitive Windows, and DOS before it, have always been compared to contemporary versions of Mac OS. I’d say only since Windows 10 has Microsoft really caught up to an experience comparable to Mac OS, but using Windows is still pretty painful.

    doesn't work on certain mac minis, huge clue is firmware revision and ID, this is also due to GPU ussues as well so that's why it wouldn't behave on that. the drawback of older mac minis is the limited OS scope of upgrade.

    I remember using Snow Leopard for 2 1/2 years, before upgrading to Lion. Lion is alright, but frustrating at times. My Mac that I installed it on (Mac Pro 1.1, flashed to a 2.1) only has Lion, while I'm trying to get a BootCamp partition working, but I have a 2007 (2008?) MacBook with a similar setup, with Snow Leopard and Windows XP as my BootCamp partition.

    Well, if you still have that Mac around and aren’t using it, you could always reinstall the original version it came with by pressing ⌘+⌥+⇧+R at startup (or Win + Alt + Shift + R). You could even repartition the disk in disk utility, and dual boot it (hold ⌥or Alt at startup to boot to a different volume)

    I'd love to see what happens if you force Windows 10 onto it. Like, boot from USB in EFI mode and get BootCamp Assistant to install with PowerShell. I got it to work flawlessly on a 2006 Macbook I have. My friend's 2009 iMac didn't work quite as well. GeForce 9400M Graphics driver update automatically installs and destroys Windows' ability to boot if I connect it to the internet. That being said, I'm sure it'd make for a fun video. 😛 Best case you end up with a Mac Mini that can run a super wide range of modern programs. Worst case you get that, but then it kills itself.

    For anyone who is wondering DSMOS is an acronym for Don't Steal Mac OS. Its function is to prevent non-Apple Intel computers from booting Mac OS and this is achieved by encrypting important OS applications such as Finder so when the "DSMOS has arrived" line appears means that DSMOS has determined that this is a valid machine and will decrypt system applications.
