Default "Version mis-match"-error while installation 10.5.x - 12-01-2009, 07:26 PM


a few month ago I setup a Dell mini 9 with the one-USB-stick method described by Gizmodo.

It works fine and the mini is running.

Yesterday I tried to setup a second mini with the same hardware and the same USB-Stick. After selecting the OSXDVD Image and pressing enter I got the following Errors:

Failed to find boot signature on BIOS device 100h

Version mis-match between Kernel and CPU PM"@/SourceCache/xnu/xnu-1228.15.4/osfmk/i386/pmCPU.c:651

I don't know what to do.

Thanks in advance

Ditch the Gizmodo instructions and rebuild your usb stick using instructions found here-
