Default New Mini10v - Going through the SL conversion - 12-10-2009, 03:57 PM

HI - I received my Mini10v I ordered on BlackFriday yesterday. I rightfully created a Ghost Image of my system and then went on and downgraded the BIOS to A04 without any issues.

1. I also went on and created the SL install disk onto my 8G USB. Now I am in the step to use the NetbookBootMaker. I see MechDrew's website says use 0.8.3 RC3. However I see the latest version is 0.8.3 RC4. Any suggestions against using the NBM 0.8.3 RC4?

2. Also in MechDrews guide there was no specification to use NBI. I have seen some conversations around here to use that after installation? What should I be doing once I install SL?

3. I also want to go and install Moblin too. Should I create a smaller partition then when I use the diskutility during SL install for the moblin to be installed later.

4. Finally, How do I access the dellrestore partition. When I ghosted, I got two image files for two partitions, I am assuming one of them is the dell restore.

Pardon my ignorance and help me out to get converted to a SL mini.

Thanks in advance.

I believe RC4 patches 10.6.2 to run on a Intel Atom..

Mini10v: 1.67 Ghz Atom / 2 GB RAM
/ A04 / OS X 10.6.3 / NBI 0.8.4 RC1 / Windows 7 on 50gb partition.

Yes, that guide is old. Use NBM 0.8.3 RC4. Make sure after you get it going, use NBI 0.8.2 to generate a DSDT file then upgrade it again with NBI 0.8.3RC4. See the User Fix thread for more details.
