Hi all, new member, needing help, I am completely failing to get anywhere with my 10v
Can't get it to boot from the install disk image!
I have tried mechdrews instructions NB1 (Leopard)
with no success at all.
I do understand what is supposed to be going on, but what happens every time is that when I try to boot from the modified install disk, then it freezes at the spinning grey apple logo screen.
- x or -f gets me to almost completely booted with the 'galaxy background' or whatever its proper name is, and a cursor that immediately turns to SBBOD. No repsonse what ever you do at that point.
Here's what I have done:
Retail 10.5.2 -> external USB HDD, (or brand-new Sandisk USB stick makes no difference)
as per mechdrews instructions using Disk Utility Restore
run netbookbootmaker on it 0.8.3 final from mechdrews link
set bios settings on 10v correctly
boot from usb - sticks forever with grey spinner
can try -s and it crashes , no keyboard input possible. The last lines read:
If you wish to boot the system:
- with no flashing cursor just a solid block, and no repsonse to keyboard at all. (I was hoping to have some input at this point)
downgrading to a05 firmware makes no difference at all.
(10v runs windows xp perfectly and all seems to work!)
Am I missing something obvious??? I am normally pretty good at this sort of thing but this seems to simply not work at all, straight out of the box ...
