Default Thanks all - Got 10.5.8 installed - 11-12-2009, 01:09 AM

Thanks all, I got my mini 9 this morning and set to try and install OS X.

I had a retail dvd and an external dvd drive but could not get the netbookcd3 installer to load the mac installer. I was however able to get DellEFI installed and working. The dvd I had was 10.5.1 so I upgraded to 10.5.6 and ran the EFI tools and got a working boot. Upgraded to 10.5.8 and it ran fine. Everything seems to be working. (Sleep works fine)

Thanks for all the guides and tips.
