I'm a newbie at installing OS X. I purchased a gateway netbook, and had a headache installing ISX, so specifically went to best buy and swapped it for a Dell mini 10, so it would work according to this forum. It has been a frustration for the last week. First, I am able to load os x 10.5.2 and update to 10.5.4 with kalyway. Then I am able to follow the guide on this site to prepare the usb external hard drive as a boot disk. I ran into a problem though that stopped me for 24 hours, where the boot drive would ALWAYS have an error when installing the boot camp package and fail. I did have the retail 6.7 gb disk, but also the snow 10.6 universal 4.7 gb dvd, however, I wanted full functionality, and did not want to use a cut back version. Finally, I would up installing from the 4.7 gb universal dvd, rebooting to the usb hard drive, running the step 2 scripts, and then continuing. Before I upgraded to 10.6.1, I moved all the install packages to my desktop, manually installed the ones I wanted, and then upgraded to 10.6.1. My issue now is when 10.6.2 is preparing the packages, it ALWAYS fails. Is there a work around for this?
Secondly, I have no mousepad, keyboard, sound, or wireless. Which package installs all of those?
