Basically as above guys, not really sure what iv done with the original mac mini discs so just wondering if i can factory reset my 08 mac mini using my 2010 iMac discs??

Reason is because selling the mac mini

If anyone could advise asap it would be much appreciated :)

Nope - these are called bundled discs and will work only with the model of the Mac they shipped with.

no, those grey discs will only work for that model concerned

you can use a regular retail disc, it will restore fully but without the ilife applications
