    Is there anyway to install MorphOS 3.15 from a USB Thumb-drive? It appears that my Mac mini’s CD drive has gone bad.

    I also have an external USB DVD Burner. Maybe there’s a way to install MorphOS that way?

    I tried that but could not get the open firmware screen to come up.

    Double check that you press the correct keys (not ctrl), try pressing them when you hear first sounds from the CD drive (not before), try connecting keyboard directly to the machine if it's on a hub...

    Does it boot to the OS when you don't succeed or does it stay in a black screen or something like that?

    I connected keyboard directly to the Mac mini but it is a cheap mini keyboard. I guess I’ll try one of my TriCaster keyboards. It boots into MorphOS 3.14 so it’s not seeing my key presses I guess.

    TriCaster keyboard worked, thanks for the help guys. I believe I’m good to go now.

    It is kind of tricky with an external keyboard. Keep trying with different methods. I've used three different keyboards so far with my Mac Mini and all have worked somehow.
