My install started with borrowing a Mac in order to make the image... I'm a guy of risks so I went with NetBookInstaller. It worked beautifully! I have run my system almost flawlessly for a month since I got it. I did have to fix the audio and the trackpad, but after that NetbookInstaller did the rest!
The only time I ran into problems was when I plugged in an external monitor and clicked mirror... Don't do that unless you've updated the proper setting.
I think you should go for it... For the time, the $300 to get my Mini 10v was ALOT, so I took a risk myself knowing that the process isn't as flawless as on a Mini 9, but I couldn't be more satisfied... Hell, I don't even want a Macbook at this point, my 10v works beautifully.
