When installing Mac OS X Server on a Mac mini Server with its original install DVD, the install is unable to continue from the first screen.

Can install other versions of MacOS without an issue, any pointers?

    This looks rather ancient. What model mini? What version of OS X? What is your ultimate goal here?

  • Did you do a fresh download of the Server app from the AppStore?

    @not2savvy This looks like the stand-alone version of OSX Server, not the addon available in the Store.

  • Is there a reason for needing this particular install version?
