I recently purchased a Dell Mini 10v with Snow Leopard installed by the original owner and it was working perfectly. Last week my girlfriend used the machine and did a software update (!). Now the machine won't boot at all and is giving me the "hibernate images is too old ..." message and gets caught in a loop trying to boot up.
So I decided to do a re-install following the step-by-step directions on Mechdrew's "NetbookInstaller 1: USB Installation via Mac" page and I'm having some trouble. The first problem I had was at step 15 (For USB Partition, select OSXDVD). The only option I have on the USB Partition list is "Mac OS X Install DVD", not "OSXDVD" like it says on the directions. I've tried this twice so I know I'm following the directions perfectly. Any ideas why this might be happening?
I tried to continue on anyway and when I put the USB key in the Mini 10v and started it up, I pressed the F12 key and I did get a grey screen, but it did not have my USB drive name, icon, and a progress bar. It just had the normal list of options on the Boot Menu.
Any guidance you can give me on how to continue would really be helpful. Thank you so much.
