Default Help: NetbookInstaller 3: Installation via External DVD Drive using NetbookCD - 11-02-2009, 04:09 AM

I'm a noob with Mac OSX....I'm currently following Mechdrew's installer 3....Does the external DVD drive have to be a specific brand? I can not be able to get SL 10.6 loaded after booting up from NCD...I'm currently using a Targus brand DVD....Is there a method that I can do physically to make SL boot? Thanks in advance.

Default my dvd failed, too - 11-02-2009, 08:16 PM

did you try the unplug, replug thing to see if the disc would be recognized? mine started a bit but would not continue

i finally used a copy of SL on a usb stick (copied as in the install from usb instructions, as a restore)

when that was plugged in at the same time that I started NCD, it was seen as an option to choose for booting

(I could not get my flash drive to be bootable, in spite of netbookmaker... maybe an incompatible flash stick?)

also, it took multiple tries. sometimes it progressed, sometimes it didn't, but I did finally get SL on both a mini 9 and a 10v, and it's working well.
