on both mine and my friends!

we used the type 11 bootloader to install, then netbookinstaller to install the drivers - worked a treat!

many thanks to fruitbat04 and 87vert!!!!

its good to know i can get past the kernel panic error using the older NCD - theres hope - but does anyone have any idea how i can get past this current issue?

(also - going to try the same disks out on a friends mini 9 tomorrow night - will report back with results of that)

This happened to me once, (I spent a god awful two days trying to get it installed) and I kept getting only to the spinning wheel and background, no further. Turns out, I left an empty sd card adapter in the card reader. (the adapter was to turn minisd into regular sd.) I took the empty adapter out of the card reader, and I was just fine.
