Ok.. I got this to work this morning. here's my setup:
10v, A06 BIOS, Netbook Installer 0.8.4 rc1, Netbook Bootmaker 0.8.4 rc1.
Retail SL 10.6
Upgrade procedure: download the dmgs from apple website, DO NOT use software update as the 10.6.3 combo update will cause a kernel panic.
1. start with 10.6.2 combo update- Mac OS X v10.6.2 Update (Combo)
make sure you allow a full reboot, NBI will run at this point and it'll take some time for SL to start back up.
2. do the security update in between.- Security Update 2010-001 (Snow Leopard) --really, i think you could actually skip this step, but this is exactly what i did.
3. do the 10.6.3 update- Mac OS X v10.6.3 Update.
again, allow NBI to do its thing at reboot... it'll take a while, but it'll boot.
run the security updates from apple website that apply to 6.3
and you're done.
at this point you can run software update for minor updates, and other software updates; itunes, java etc.
today they just released 10.6.4 (don't try this one, no one's got it to work yet)
a new adventure....
cheers.. I hope this will get you a bootable machine.
