I am NO expert on Mac's. Why am I answering your post? I've seen you ask this same question elsewhere and you haven't been getting any responses. From all that I can determine, the requirements listed for Norton Internet Security specify MacBook, MacBook Pro or MacBook Air. I don't see any references to a Mac Mini. That would lead me to suspect it might not be supported.

Maybe someone else more qualified has a different answer?

Hi Iwoodall8,

 

Another addtional resource for information from Norton would be the Norton For Mac Forum Board:

 

https://community.norton.com/en/forums/norton-for-mac

A veteran - whether active duty, retired, national guard, or reserve - is someone who, at one point in his or her life, wrote a blank check made payable to The 'United States of America', for an amount of 'up to and including my life.'

As I mentioned in my initial reply, I posited that the Mac mini is NOT supported. I included the System Requirements in a screen cap.

 

I have since been in touch with Norton Support and they concur with me. The Mac mini is NOT supported for installation of Norton Internet Security for Mac.
