Default Re dell mini 9 osx screen freeze help - 02-15-2010, 01:18 PM


Sorry if this has been asked before,

While loading OSX using the current method at: NetbookInstaller 1: USB Installation via Mac | Guides | OS X | mechdrew

My set up gets passed the grey screen then gets onto the purple screen (looks like space) with a colurful spinning wheel in the top left and nothing happens from there. I think the next stage is it is supposed to ask me the language I want, etc however noen of this seems to come up. I have re-booted 3 times same thing happens. Any suggestions to what the issue maybe/solution.

Help much appreciated.

Lots of times the reason why the installer won't completely load is because of the USB drive you are using. This happened to me when I first installed OSX. Try a new USB drive. Good luck.
