Default Ehh, weird problem... - 09-30-2009, 02:55 PM

Alright so I am using the latest method to install OSX on my Mini 9 with my external HDD as my bootable drive. The problem occurs when I load the OSX installer. It gets to that phase fine, then when it is about to load on to the next step it tells me the "cd is dirty. reinsert and try to reinstall."

how do I fix this? Do i need a smaller drive?

Its a 500 GB western digital mybook fyi.

Welcome to MyDellMini

Saying you used the "latest method" is not detailed enough to help you, especially because many people think they are using the most recent method when it is, in fact, not.

Please link to the guide you used and provide information about which version of NetbookInstaller/NetbookBootMaker you are trying to use!


 Mini 10v  | 2Gb RAM | 320 Gb HDD | Ubuntu 10.04 | OSX 10.6.3 | NBI .8.4RC1 | Chameleon Bullet Theme | BIOS A05 | USB Wake : OFF | USB Legacy : ON | No BlueTooth
