Thanks Jim. Right, I saw that one also. I've got a 2010 mac mini model which also has the keyboard issue. Doesn't seem like it's feasible to use the 2010 model. Going to give it one more shot with trying to do a kickstart install off the dvd. It that doesn't work then I'll try to locate a 2011 model.
Overall your code looks good and should work - just would like to test it.
