EFI Error Message during install - 08-31-2009, 05:27 PM
i've got myself today an Mini 10V. It had the A06 Bios on it, so i directly downgraded to A04.
Then at home i wanted to install OSX using this guide:
Method 1 - USB Installation via Mac | Guides | OS X | mechdrew
Only difference is that i do the Preperation on a Mac which is allready running Snow Leopard.
After preparing the OSX Boot USB Disk i attached it to the Dell and i can boot from it, but after the blue bar i get a short message in the upper left corner (it says something with EFI - it's only visable for a half second) then the gray apple logo is coming up but no spinning wheel.
I tested it a couple of times, also with boot: -x -f no chance getting into the Installer.
NetBookMaker isn't able to run correctly under Snow Leo.
I hope that's it, as all other reasons would be related to my Dell...
I do not have access to an Leopard Mac, i would have an external DVD Drive, but i couldn't find a guide which is explaining a DVD Installation through an USB DVD Drive.

Here is an old guide for using an external cd drive. I'm not sure what the problem is because I used the same guide last week to reinstall osx. The only difference was that I created the bootable usb drive in Leopard. So I think your assumption that snow leopard had something to do with it seems fairly logical.
