Hey guys it's been awhile since I've been in the forum. My m9 has been running flawlessly since installing 10.5.7 using the guide I made here for my RunCore. I decided to follow MechDrew's guide for 10.6 and here's my post from another section which has only got 1 view since posting this morning. So I thought I'd run it by you to see which guide to follow for installing 10.6.8 from a Mac to the RunCore and then put in the m9.
I just used MechDrew's guide for using a Intell Mac to install SL on my mini 9.
Method 4: Direct Install from Mac to SSD/HDD | Guides | OS X | mechdrew
I did all the updates to 10.6.8 on my 32GB RunCore (1st generation) and installed it into the m9. Upon boot up I get the grey Apple logo screen and then it immediately goes into a Kernal Panic screen with the message in various languages to restart by holding down the power button.
I ran both the stock WinXP card and 10.5.7 on the RunCore using DellEFI 1.2a5 and my guide on this site.
One thought in the Post-Install section this is what is said;
3. Once you get to the Finder Desktop, you should download (if necessary) and run the NetbookInstaller 0.8.3 application. If a warning prompt shows up asking, "Are you sure you want to open it?" click Open. Select the following options:
The Instructions show 10.6.2. Is the problem due to the 10.6.8 updates?
