Install Retail 10.5.6 and Upgrade - 12-22-2009, 12:33 AM
So far I can't find the answer in the forums and am hoping someone can assist. I have attempted to install OS X from a retail 10.5.6 DVD and upgrade to 10.5.8 using the method NetbookInstaller 3 at NetbookInstaller 3: Installation via External DVD Drive using NetbookCD | Guides | OS X | mechdrew. So far I have not had a successful install using a 16GB SSD or a 32GB SSD. I've followed the instructions in detail to no success. During my last attempt, I rebooted after the 10.5.8 combo update and booted using -x -v so I could see what was going on during boot. Just before the boot froze I noticed the following:
lots of ApplePS2Trackpad messages before "SDHCI:No Response from CMD8"
then "AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement: initialization complete"
Then frozen indefinitely. Can anyone help?? I have a Dell Mini 9 with 2GB RAM and currently a 23GB SSD.
I can provide more details if necessary.
