used netbookinstaller, 10v, got boot1: error - 10-29-2009, 10:09 PM
sorry if this was specifically answered already. I have spent a good hour searching.
installing onto a new 10v.
reverted from A06 to A05 (used winphlash
Downgrade your Mini 10v BIOS to A04 (Requires Windows))
used an 8gb flash drive (happens to be a toshiba mini HD, if that matters)
made partition 1, MBR on
restored, for hours, the os X installation disk onto the flash drive
set usb legacy support ON, and moved usb storage up to first boot drive
ran netbookinstaller on the flash drive
restarted 10v with usb in place
boot0: done? (sorry, can't remember for absolute sure)
what did I miss?
I read threads where people had the wrong partition for osX, or names of hard drives with spaces (but I am nowhere near that), so I am currently remaking the usb drive, to make sure that I didn't miss something.
is there any chance that the toshiba usb drive, being a hard drive, is the problem?
thanks for info.
I did successfully get a mini 9 working 6 months ago with the dellEFI method, but I see that the netbook installer is the preferred way now. if I can get this 10v working, I was gonig to upgrade my mini 9 to snow leopard, too.

Use NetbookBootMaker, not NetbookInstaller to prepare the usb drive.
