Default 10.6(.0) Retail to 10.6.7 Help Please! - 04-05-2011, 08:53 PM

Hiya, I'm new here, and I've been scouring these forums to find the best info on bringing my Mini 10v (UK Inspiron 1011 Pink) up to speed, took me days to finally get it installed as version 10.6(.0) disc with NBBM 0.8.4 RC1. It's taken alot of time and stress to get this far, and I'm leaving my USB pen as is in the event I have to wipe and install at any moment. It's up and running with everything enabled right now, but I'd like to update to 10.6.7 if at all possible, with zero headaches (irritations and minor stress IS permitted, however ).

So far, all upgrade routes are from 10.6.3 to 10.6.7, or updating in increments from outside files that usually result in hardware not working and requiring lots of tricks that aren't confirmed to work. I'm not expecting 100% on first try, but I'm hoping for a guide that will at least aid in getting me up to speed with little left not working in the end.

This post is a repeat of a post previously deleted as I broke forum rules. I'm sorry for that action and I've attempted to 'sanitize' the original post into this version.

Run NetbookInstaller 20100616212351.
Without rebooting, download and apply the update to the OS, uncheck all other updates (airport utility, iLife, etc.)
After rebooting, you should have a fully functional netbook running 10.6.7. I know I do.

That's what I did, I ran NBI with all the numbers, ran the update, ran NBI again, and it says 10.6.7, no problems. IDK if I needed to run NBI b4 the update, but I thought what the heck. It is working fine, every once in a while after a hibernate, sound won't work and I still get the hibernate image too old, but other than that, working great. I was worried since I did skip an update in the past when I went straight from new install to update and got the terminal error. So I am extra careful now but it is working great. I have to go to the windows side of my dual boot once a month, if not for a program I would be 100% mac all the time.

Great advice guys, my Cider Hac Book 10v is now up and running on 10.6.7, just followed ConBroChill's advice, no problems after updating. Fantastic work people, now I've just got to fight of the urge to buy an iMac

I am not getting the option to "uncheck all other updates" when running the combo update after having run NBI.....please advise.

Nevermind, went back and did it all again and it 10.6.7 now. Running NBI twice is the key.
