Default 1st Dell Mini - 11-14-2009, 07:15 PM

Hi guys, 1st post!

Anyways, I am talking myself into purchasing a Dell Mini 10v and would just like some clarification on a few issues.

I am going to buy from Dell, with 160GB hard drive, Bluetooth and stock Wifi card.

Then hopefully upgrade the RAM to 2GB using the methods on Youtube.

I would like to use OSX 10.6.1, which I have no problem installing, Windows 7 and a spare partition that I can use to experiment on Ubuntu or Modbin etc

If I want to triple boot am I forced to go MBR instead of GUID?

Will the Bluetooth card support Bluetooth stereo music?

Is the BIOS downgrade easy to do 1st time?

Thanks all I can think of at the minute, thanks alot to anyone that can help me. I have been very impressed with the forums and have spent about a month reading into this, before I actually make the purchase.

Hi, and welcome to MyDellMini.

As no one else has yet replied to you, I was about to do so, and suggest that you may well get a more informative response by posting your questions in the Operating Systems/ Dual Booting (or possibly even the OS X) section, but I see now that you already have!

Hopefully someone there will be able to point you in the right direction and there are a lot of interesting posts on similar topics.

Being a straightforward Windows man myself, I'm afraid that I can't really help you at all, but I am sure there are plenty of others on here who can!

Enjoy yout Mini 10v anyway... they are great little 'machines'!!
