Well, I've gone through about a dozen hours of online guides and research.
I thought I had this down, but apparently not.
So I have Mini 10v. BIOS was A06, I flashed to A05.
I used a 8GB and the SL DVD that came with my new Macbook and made a bootable USB thumbdrive (using NetbookMaker, RC5).
When I boot, it's comes to Apple language selection screen. I choose English.
Then, the horror:
"Mac OS X can't be installed on this computer."
There is a "Restore From Backup" button, and a "Restart" button.
Restore from backup starts Time Machine, which is looking for a Time Machine backup device.
So what did I do wrong?
All the videos show the "Install Mac OS Screen"
The only thing I can think of is the SL DVD that comes with the MacBook is not the same as the retail version at the store? I have read conflicting things about this. I don't have an issue buying a copy of OS X, but I'd rather have it work before dropping dollars. Also, from what I read, they are the same, so it should work.
Any assistance would be welcomed.
