    Thumbs up Sorry Mini MAC, OS X gotta go .. Windows 7 on Apple mini

    I have a new project for the 450hp 05 STI, I plan to use the mini mac with windows 7.

    Why windows? lack of programs for the mac. I love the the way the apple mini is designed just hate the OS.

    I plan to post pics of the custom 05 STI car later this week, and will post updates on the Carputer as well. If others like to do swap the OS on the apple minis to windows 7, i have posted details with ISO files if you need it

    youtube video and howto

    Looks like you're getting about a 45 second cold boot time with Window 7. You're going to hate that after a while.

    Yeah, i have to say the mac bios wait is kind of annoying especially paired with a windows installation. But im glad to here that centrafuse is working well with it. Have you had any driver conflicts?
