So many tutorials, Im getting confused:

I have a
  • dell mini 9 with 16gb hdd
  • External USB DVD
  • Snow Leopard (when I buy it)
  • 16gb USB (if I need it )

So what is the easiest way to install OSX?

I did by burning netbook bootmaker iso to cdr and boot up, swap the snow leopard disc and proceed with the installation. After the installation, boot the bootmaker cdr again and choose to boot from the SL from the HDD. Copy NetbookInstaller 0.8.4 to a thumbdrive, insert into the SL computer and run it. It will patch the necessary kext and make the HDD bootable. After that, boot the system again without the boot cdr it will load the SL from the HDD.

Dell Inspiron Mini 910 with Vostro A90 A06 BIOS, Kingston 2GB RAM, RunCore 64G-C SSD, SL 10.6.3, NBI 0.8.4 RC1, aboutthismac.pkg, AppleHDA+dsdt, PowerVoodoo

heres the NBI link.

download it to a usb thumb drive or disc and swap. but the swap isnt neccesary if you have it on a prepared usb.

just have the SL disc in the usb drive ready.

Downloads - netbook-installer - Project Hosting on Google Code
