Default install osx on 10v without a mac? - 10-24-2009, 08:26 PM

Is there any way I can install snow leopard on a mini 10v without having a mac available? All the guides I have seen mention that you need a mac to create the usb drive. Thanks for the help!!

The only guides you should look at are here.....

Guides | OS X | mechdrew

And the one on that page that you want is this one, though you'll need a USB DVD drive to use it.

NetbookInstaller 3: Installation via External DVD Drive using NetbookCD | Guides | OS X | mechdrew


DELL Vostro 1720 - 2.4Ghz - 4GB - 500GB - Windows 7
DELL XPS M1330 - 2.4Ghz - 4GB - 500GB - Windows 7
DELL Vostro A90 - 2GB - 64GB SSD - OSX
.

8GB is too small, from what I read. But please browse the OS X section of the forum, read the guides and search for your questions.

Thanks for the info! I bought a Dell Mini 9 with a 32 GB SSD specifically to load OSX on. I have tried a couple of different methods but have not gotten them to work yet: I'll try this one! I have retail Snow Leopard: I hope it will boot and work!
Thanks again!
