I spent ages over the weekend trying to install snow leopard on my 10v following Meklort's guide using NBI 0.8.3. Each time I got a kernal panic and instructions to restart my machine. I tried different usb keys. My 10v is about 6 months old and still has BIOS A04. Eventually I tried using NBI 0.8.2 which, after several hangs and restarts, installed fine.
I now want to update to 10.6 2 but believe to do so I need drivers from the NBInstaller or NBMaker 0.8.3. I've read various posts as to how to achieve this. Either I can run NBI from inside a normally booted 10.6.0 on my 10v, or I need to boot into safe mode somehow and then run it or I need to boot off my usb key zapped with 0.8.3 and run it from there. Each instruction seems to have caused problems for someone or other in the comments associated with the post.
If someone could clarify the correct way to go about this I'd be extremely grateful. And if I need to run it off a usb key how do I change my machine so I can do this without a kernal panic.
