I have had my Dell Mini 10v for 2.5 months and it has been running snowleopard perfectly until now. The other day I forgot to charge it and the battery ran completely flat. After POST is hangs at "boot:0 done". I have read on another thread that it can be caused by having a space in the name of the drive. This may be the case (I'm not 100% what I named the drive)
To try and solve the issue I have tried booting from a USB flash drive but it is not recognised. I prepared the drive by restoring an image of snowleopard on to it and then running netbook maker. I have named the flash drive OSXDVD with no spaces, and have set it as a master boot record.
This is the same flash drive I originally used with no problems.
I have looked in the BIOS settings and nothing is listed under USB storage.
