Issue with "boot1: error." Please help. - 10-04-2009, 12:51 PM
I'm only two days old into the Hackintosh scene and have frequented this site quite often for research. Anyhow, I've already ordered myself a Mini 10v that should arrive within a week, and want to make sure I'm prepared for the big leap.
To begin, there are two guides that I have come across: Guide #1 and Guide #2. The guides themselves seem straight-forward, but they don't mention Snow Leopard. I intend on using the $29 Snow Leopard "upgrade" for my 10v, but need some clarification if the two guides are the proper measures for doing so. If there is a better guide for installing SL, please provide me with a link to it.
More so, is there anything else I need to know about SL and 10v? For example, does SL run as well as Leopard did on the 10v? Any details you can provide me will be greatly appreciated.

Guide 2 is already working with the new Netbookinstaller / Netbookbootmaker 0.83 RC2
So this is the most up2date guide out there.
In the 0.83 RCs there is a new Touchpad Driver for the 10v that adds multitouch (2 Fingner right-click, 2Finger scroll).
You just need to enable the settings in the SystemSettings in OS X.
Snow Leopard is running perfect on the 10v now.
Only little bugs left are:
- a little bit longer boot time (60 sec. from power-on until the dock is showing up in SL)
- a short crackle through the speakers when the first audio is played after the device is waked up from sleep.
- Reboot in SL doesn't work most of the time. It ends in a black screen and you have to power off / on manually (But the normal shutdown works without a problem).
There's only one addition to the Guide:
In the last days there was a new VerbHelper.kext released, that fixes sound after sleep.
Otherwise you have to reboot to get audio back.
To install the new verbhelper after you finished with the guide, grab it here for Snow Leopard:
Then open a Finder window and press cmd+shift+g and enter /Extra
(The folder is invisible, so you need to enter it that way, as you can't see it in finder)
Here you will see a subfolder "Mini10vExt", replace the VerbHelper.kext inside with the new one.
Then go back to the Extra folder and run the UpdateExtra app.
Start the update proccess and wait until it's finished.
After a reboot put the device to sleep (Simply close the Lid), wake it up again, and audio should be back immediately.
Btw. good choice, the 10v seems to be the most compatible Netbook to Snow Leopard.

AS Thyraz said, use "Guide 2" that you linked to (mechdrew's guide... also have a link in my signature).
The "Guide 1" that you linked to is deprecated.
Welcome to MyDellMini and good luck!

Most of the bugs have been worked out in the latest release, mentioned in my guide (option number 2 here).

Switch Legacy USB off in BIOS.
If that doesn't work, boot with the USB drive, then reinstall the chameleon boot loader using netbookinstaller.
