[FIX] - 10v Boot from USB stop sign - 01-29-2010, 08:24 PM
I've finally got my OS X installing going on my 10v now and I'm literally shaking in excitement after the pain I've gone though, to try without a mac, then finally getting my hands on one, then forgetting major steps. Well, to be honest I fail, but here's a problem I fixed which I couldn't find a resolution for on the internet:
I'm using 2 USB sticks, one ImageWriter put on NBI_083F.img and the other with Gizmodo's Guide
But, as I am fail, and the disc to USB took over 2 hours I went home and forgot the crucial Netbook Boot Maker steps. So I combined this method with Mechdrews' Guide
Long story short, booting was fine, then when selecting the Mac OS X disc in chameleon the apple logo came up, then the spinning wheel, but then I got a stop sign over the apple logo:
But, downgrading my BIOS to A04 using this method: Here!
And using the RC image of: NBI_083RC3
The installation gets further and is now working.
Whether mods want to put this fix in an FAQ and delete this thread i'm not fussed, just want to help people avoid some of the pain I went through
Good luck guys
