What is the correct way to upgrade from 10.6.0 to 10.6.3? I had a well working mini 10v upgraded in steps from 10.6.0 10.6.3 but was stupid enough to try tonyosx86's audio kext (it's not necessarily the kext that's bad, there's a fair chance it's my lack of knowledge about kexts that's the problem). In the end I had to wipe my hd and do a clean install in order to get things working again. The thing is now I can't get my system up to 10.6.3. After installing 10.6.3 I never get the login window when I boot. No kp, no message, just the background image.
I've booted into safe mode and run netbookinstaller (0.8.4RC1) from there, and also booted from the usb stick I used to install and run it from there.
Upgrade Instructions :
Download the NetbookInstaller .8.4RC1
Run NBI .8.4RC1 using the options you prefer
Run Software Update -- Upgrade to 10.6.3
Reboot your Mini
I've tried doing the combined upgrade directly from 10.6 to 10.6.3 and tried doing it in steps. It is all really messed up, because I'm doing exactly the same things I did when it worked only now it doesn't work. I have reinstalled _many_ times now and am about to just hide my dell in the back of my closet and forget about it.
EDIT: Apparently a Hackintosh is a many headed beast to tackle. Back on 10.6.3 with sound now. What I did:
1) Used NetbookBootmaker 0.8.3 to prep my USB stick
2) Used NetbookInstaller 0.8.3 when upgrading to 10.6.2
3) Did some minor updates, still using 0.8.3
4) Ran NetbookInstaller 0.8.4 RC1 before upgrading to 10.6.3
The differences from previous attempts was that before I used 0.8.4 all the way from the beginning, and I did some of the minor upgrades simultaneously as I upgraded to 10.6.2 and 10.6.3. I'm not saying this is the only way to do it, but it worked for me.
