Mac Mini 2.1, 1.83 CPU, 4GB RAM, £20 SSD from Amazon. Ran Mint 19.3, Mint 20 fine as well, after a few resolved issues with Lastpass. Sorry if this is the wrong thread to reply in.

Start a topic in the Support area, and people will most likely give you a hand.

If your issue is solved, kindly indicate that by editing the first post in the topic, and adding [SOLVED] to the title. Thanks!

My install was on a mid 2010 Mac Mini:

2.4GHz Intel Core 2 Duo processor
8Gb 1066MHz DDR3 SDRAM
NVIDIA GeForce 320M graphics processor
320Gb Serial ATA hard disk drive
8x slot-loading SuperDrive (DVD±R DL/DVD±RW/CD-RW)

I had to delete some apps (LibreOffice for one) as well as spelling dictionaries and languages, apart from English UK and Japanese, as this is machine is only used as a media player in the bar.

The only problem, if you can call it that, is this on boot:

Failed to Set MokListRT: Invalid Parameter
Could not create mokListRT: Invalid Parameter
Importing MOK states has failed: import_mok_state() failed: Invalid Parameter
Continuing boot since secure mode is disabled.

I've already Googled how to fix it but since I'm making coffee while the machine is booting I can live with it! :D
