Another 2006 Mac Mini Core 2 Duo CPU/Lion (10.7.4) Upgrade Report
Added another report (2006 Mini w/Core Duo originally, now with a 2GHz Core 2 Duo CPU swap) to our page on (2006-08) Mac Mini Core 2 Duo CPU Upgrades. (Those early Intel-based Minis have a socketed CPU, but later mini models don't.)
This is the second reader to note OS X Lion 10.7.4 via software update didn't restore the supported mac models plist. (Some previous reports also updated the mini's firmware/bootrom from mini 1,1 to 2,1 for 3GB ram support vs 2GB.)
