Apple Mac Mini: No Bootable Device Error

Trying to eject a CD from an Apple Mac Mini without an Apple keyboard or OS installed?

Press and hold F12 after pressing the power button to force the CD to eject.

Error message: No bootable device - insert boot disk and press any key

This is a Windows error message caused by booting to a Windows CD.
In my case, I had a Windows CD stuck in the drive and it booted, beginning the Windows setup.

Insert the Windows / Mac OS Install CD and hold C after pressing the power button until the Apple logo is displayed.

HP LaserJet 3390: Error Occurred Communicating with the Device

HP LaserJet Fix Scan Utility

This error message prevents the use of HP Scan over the network and can be caused by a change in IP address on the printer.

Printing may still work and the HP Toolbox recognises the network printer.

The utility above detects the printer on the network and updates the old IP address with the new IP address.
