OK well, got home. Went through the Mac install process instead, and it worked like a charm. Still have some configuration issues (such as WiFi setup) but the straight USB stick setup & OSX 10.6 install worked fine. So it seems the Windows setup is touchy.

Having the same problem - mach_kernel error after failing to copy support files. I can, though, get to Chameleon screen but when I choose the install dvd it gives memory allocation error (hex, hex).

My setup:
Dell Mini 9 with 16GB SSD
USB sticks: Sandisk Cruzer 16gb and Kingston DT Mini 4gb (two extra: LaCie Moskeyto 4gb & Kingston Data Traveler 2.0 4gb)
No Mac, no external DVD drive
Retail 10.6 DVD (MAC OSX V10.6 RETAIL)

Can't also boot to ubuntu, going to try Windows XP via BartPE/Win7 DVD to erase the SSD.

I have been trying this since June, and thought now that I've got enough of trying with different guides - and found this thread! Thanks for good posts!
