Anyone had any success getting a walk-in appointment at a Genius Bar? My Mac Mini is not booting again, after I just had the hard drive replaced a couple months ago. It is 7 AM in Alaska, and according to the website, there are NO appointments available today. I live 2.5 hours away, but am headed up there anyhow (kind of a last minute trip), and wanted to see if I could get in this afternoon to have it looked at.

Anyone know how easy it is to get a walk-in appointment?

It depends on how busy they are. Most likely they won't be able to look at it, but it can't hurt to try since you're headed down there anyway. Here are some troubleshooting steps to try if they can't look at it today.

Use the Apple Store app to make an appointment.

They made it more difficult to make appointments but the Apple Store app makes it easy.
