Default After full post-install, Mini 9 will not boot.. - 07-01-2009, 04:29 PM


Thanks a million for all the work in making OSX run on the Dell Mini. I printed and followed "DellEFI Guide Method Ver. 3.02." I installed from the USB as directed, and all went according to plan for most of the way, including the 10.5.7 update. I got my account set up and was thrilled to see Leopard there on my Netbook!

But when it came to the -x boot into safe mode, it took 3/4 attempts before the safe boot succeeded. Then I ran D ellEFI 1.2.5 again, as directed in step 10, but booting up fails straight away. I can't even do a safe boot.

Here is some of the screen output that is partly obscured by the multilingual window that tells you to hold down your power button to restart.

panic unable to find driver for this platform
debugger called
BSD process name corr--
mac os version not yet set

is there anything I can do to rescue the situation? John
