Hi everyone, Hackintosh noob rman here.

After browsing the forums and speaking with a friend, I took the chance and bought a Dell 1011, Snow Leopard, and a USB drive. I really wanted a small light yet fully functional platform for OS X, which (sadly) Apple doesn't offer. Enter the world of Hackintosh!

Within 2 hours of opening the box, I had SL up and running, but made the foolish mistake of not running NetBookInstaller before applying the myriad of updates. Everything was screwed up - an hour passed before I realized my mistake.

So I started all over again, followed the Gizmodo guide to the t, and within 3 hours I was fully updated and one happy camper.

I wish to thank Meklort for the incredible work put into the installer and bootmaker - it really is a wonder, and he made it so easy. You are brilliant! And also thanks to the MyDellMini forum - this is an incredible resource if you take the time to read through the minutiae of what others have done. Thanks everyone!

You can learn alot by lurking. I am sure as you already have found out there are some very sharp people that own mini's.
They are willing to share the things they have found and dish
out the knowledge like servings of strawberry shortcake to all.
So go ahead and take a big piece for yourself. Somewhere down the road you will have the opportunity to serve up a piece yourself. Good luck with your mini and enjoy the people you meet here. fdalbor
