Default Help installing OSX on Mini 9 - 01-20-2009, 10:01 PM

Hey everybody,

So I've been trying to find ways to install OS X on my Dell Mini 9 but do not have many options. I have the MSI Wind OS X iso image to install it. But I do not have an external DVD drive so I want to boot it off my flash drive. I have an 8 gb flash drive which I think should be enough. So I followed some directions but can only run OS X off of my flash drive, it is not installed to the hard drive itself.

Couple questions:

-Which program can I use to make my flash drive bootable? Meaning, if I have the .iso image on it, I can start my laptop and it will install.

-How would I go about installing it once the flash drive is bootable? Just load the .iso on my flash drive and then choose USB Storage on the BIOS screen?

Any help is appreciated.

The MSIWind method is forbidden here. Go buy a copy of OS X, we do not condone piracy.

Tired of wondering if your Mini9 is doing ANYTHING? - Add a HDD Activity LED
