Default Installing 10.6.4 with NBI 0.8.4 - 09-10-2010, 07:42 PM

I am on the verge of buying a 10v and transforming it into a minitosh.

I am wondering about what version of Snow Leopard to use. I will be buying a retail disc from the Apple store, which will likely have either 10.6.3 or 10.6.4

Are either of these compatible with NetBookmaker? or would I need to track down another version of Snow Leopard

EDIT* I just read on that the 10.6.3 DVD will work with NBI 0.8.4 RC1

Additionally, The 10v I am picking up will likely have the A06 BIOS - which should be compatible with the latest NBI. Correct?

Thanks in advance guys!

You should be fine using the Retail Upgrade disc and that version of NBI/NBM.

Before you try an upgrade to 10.6.4, download and run the version found in the first post here-
**OFFICIAL** Mac OS X 10.6.4 Update Thread

Otherwise you will be here asking why it no longer boots.

The BIOS version you mentioned is no problem.
