Default used netbookinstaller, 10v, got boot1: error - 10-29-2009, 10:09 PM

hi there.

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)
boot1: error

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.

Dell Mini 9 | Mac OS X 10.6.5 | 2 GB RAM | 32 GB Buffalo SSD | BIOS A05
Dell Mini 10v | Mac OS X 10.6.5 | 1 GB RAM | 160 GB HDD | BIOS A06

Default still won't work, did actually use netbook maker - 10-30-2009, 03:50 AM

I started over on the flash drive, and it is still not seen by the 10v... pauses on boot up briefely, the flash drive's blue light flashes, then goes on to load XP

I'm wondering if there is something about this particular flash drive that makes it not bootable.

going to try the CD method next.

any other ideas?

The BIOS is not seeing the flash drive as being bootable.
