It looks like a few recent posts fell off this thread (or I'm just to daft to find them), so I'll reply to share this in case it is helpful to someone.
I applied Akki's sound/mic fix to my mini9 10.6.5 and it worked like a charm, giving me sound and internal mic. When I upgraded to iTunes 10.1.2, I suddenly lost the sound again and then botched something up trying to run NBI, ending up unable to boot; period.
Loath to do a wipe and clean install, I tried booting from a NBM USB stick to try and run some version of NBI to at least salvage some of the install.
After multiple attempts I ended up creating a USB stick with NBM that contained the 10.6 install (from the CD) as well as the latest version of NBI 8.4. Launched the SL install, ran NBI 8.4 from the Utilities tab and was then able to boot the mini in safe mode and re-run NBI 8.5 pre that I have on it.
I had to replace the ACL268.kext and AppleHDA.kext again and re-run UpdateExtra.app, but now all is well in my world

Greetings from Japan, all.
First post here, and first attempt at squeezing SL on my Mini9. - Thanks to all the info/guidance on this great forum, I was able to get 10.6.3 running, and up to 10.6.6 after installing updates! Very stoked on my new MacNetbook. (^-^)/
Only thing..I have no sound or mic..I'm going to try Akki's tips, but before I do - will it work on Bios A03? Or should I upgrade my Bios before I even attempt?
I can follow step by step directions, but to be honest, I'm not the most computer savy..
I'm hoping for an easy, stress free fix..(The kernel-panics I had at install were scary enough the 1st time around!)
Any advice is greatly appreciated.
