There really isn't much I can say for fixing this issue. You really only havfe two options:
1) Reburn the disc (if you used a rewritable disc, try a different one.)
2) Try a different DVD drive. Some don't work so hot with NetbookCD and Mac OS.
Otherwise, I'm at a loss for troubleshooting.

Thanks a TON.
Installed with no problems on a 10V with the A06 Bios using a retail 10.6 copy of OSX.
Didn't have audio at first but after I did the auto 10.6.2 update and reran the netbookinstaller 0.8.3 again it worked like a charm. I ran into an issue with coming out of sleep when opening the lid but I followed this post and it took care of it (MyDellMini_Link).
BTW - I used a Plextor PX-610U to install. Whats weird is that when I would try to boot with f12 and pick CD it doesn't work, but when I set the CD as the first boot device it works with no problem. You guys might want to try that if you are having issues with an external drive not booting off of the quick menu.
Thanks again for all of your hard work.

i have a couple of questions regarding my mini9 os x install (from a retail disk and xbox 360 hd dvd drive):
i tried using the 0.8.3 final release but kept getting kernel panic errors so after reading this post i decided to try using the older 1.1 iso that was mentioned in this thread.
using the older v1.1 gets me further then before - no kernel panic error, it loads up a screen with the apple space style background and a spinning colored pinwheel in the corner, after quite some time the pinwheel vanished just leaving the background ... i left it for around 30 mins and still nothing, so i went to turn the mini 9 off - pressed the power button and instantly the pinwheel appeared again, left it for another 30 mins and nothing has happened - wheel still spinning endlessly ... any ideas on how i can get past this?

Just 2 days with a Hackintosh Mini 10v and I did something in Ubuntu that killed the bootloader. This thread, the NetbookCD and guide, and a USB DVD drive I was using with an old Dell 700m and I was back in business in about 30 minutes! Thank you!
Now I need to learn to be more careful when I don't know what I'm doing ... um, yeah, sure

Then look at
**OFFICIAL** Mac OS X 10.6.4 Update Thread
This thread where you posted really is a bit old. I, too, was confused when I saw these older (and somewhat outdated) threads as top of the page as stickies.
