Question Updating Snow Leopard to 10.6.6 - 07-18-2011, 08:23 AM

Hi everyone.

I currently have Snow Leopard 10.6.0 installed on my Mini 10V, but want to update to 10.6.6. Since NBI and NBM (Boot Maker) have been integrated into one application, which version of NBI should I run? From previous threads on the forum, people are suggesting NetbookInstaller 20100616212351 which seems to have last been modified in June 2010, but the latest version (0.8.5 Pre) was last modified in November, which I assume means that I'd be better off running it than version 20100616212351?

Thanks.

NBI 0.8.5 pre is just a pre release that has some bugs, but it still works.

However, I suggest you to use NBI 20100616212351 since it's more stable, it can be used on Snow Leopard up to 10.6.7, and also can be used on 10.6.8 with some additional fixes.

Hi, and thanks for your help.

In that case, does NBI 20100616212351 contain features not present in the pre-release of 0.5, and has Bootmaker been integrated into that version?

Concerning upgrading to 10.6.8, what fixes have to be applied?

Thanks.

The differences between of those two version of NBI are on the bundled kexts and the chameleon bootloader, so I can't say what features that present and what ones that do not, but AFAIK, NBI 0.8.5 pre has no options we can choose to enable or disable when we run it, it just run.
NBM not included on NBI 20100616212351, but you can use NBM 0.8.4 rc1, after installation complete, copy NBI 20100616212351 onto your HDD on applications folder, and then run it.

You need to use patched mac_kernel and sleep enabler kext.

Hi, and thanks for your help.

At the moment, I guessthat it's just easier to stay with 10.6.7. In that case, do I need to grab just the standard update, or for the MacBook Pro Early 2011? I'm assuming the former, but I don't want to install the wrong file.

Thanks.

Get the standard 10.6.7, since you don't have a Macbook Pro.
