Finally i get the Windows 7 installed on the Mac Mini.
Then i tried to do the same for the MacBook but i couldn’t find the usb drive on the boot menu. After asking Google, it is found that for those Mac machines which are equipped with the super drive (dvd drive), they cannot be booted by external devices. I try to install the rEFIt boot manager but it still doesn’t work.
Finally i have to use the Boot Camp to install the Windows 7, but i have to find a DVD Windows 7 installer. Anyway, the Boot Camp is really cool and all drivers are automatically installed.
Recently i have tried to install Windows 7 in a Mac Mini and a MacBook. I have a Window 7 installer in a bootable usb. Just keep pressing the option key on startup and you could select the boot device in the boot menu. It works fine for the Mac Mini and the Windows 7 is installed without any problem.
But after the installation, i found that many drivers are missing. Finally i found a blog post written by Chris F Carroll. You can find all the details about getting the drivers from the Boot Camp package in that post so I am not going to repeat it here.
