Default Help!! 2 USB Installation - 10-02-2009, 01:42 AM

I have tried every conceivable way to install OSX onto my Mini 9. I started off using the dual thumb drive method which failed. I got all the way to the Language preference stage; OSX loaded, then told me the operating system could not be installed on the computer. Which is false. WHat do I do? I tried the DVD Drive method, but my DVD Drive couldn't load the OSX Installation CD. PLEASE HELP ME! WHAT DO I DO?!?!?!

I had to use a real Mac to install to an external HD, then boot to the bootcd, then put in the Leopard Install DVD, then use Disk Utility to restore the external HD to the internal SSD. Then I had to boot again from the bootcd and run the mini9 utils.

Do you have a Mac at your disposal?

The newest Netbook Bootmaker method is very easy and painless.
