Default A06 BIOS Question - 04-11-2010, 07:32 AM

I recently purchased a Dell Mini 10v and am planning to hackintosh it. I was reading up on the Gizmodo guide and have found that the A06 BIOS works fine now (without downgrading) using the newest version of Bootmaker. Can anyone confirm?

Do not read the Gizmodo guide. You can get everything you need here. A06 is fine - use the 0.8.4RC1 version of Netbook Installer.

I just completed a new 10-V yesterday using A06. Smooth as glass, pal. No worries. I used my 10.6.X thumb drive that was conditioned with NBI 0.8.3 Final. Then once that was in, I ran the new 0.8.4rc1 and followed with a software update from Apple. Best conversion of the 10-or-so that I've done.

Go for it.

P.S.: And per the holmes4 comment on Gizmodo guides, I would have to agree. This is THE place to do what you have in mind; it is a friendly community where you will find answers to all your questions. Take care.

Default OK then, - 04-14-2010, 08:07 PM

After I by accident upgraded on NBI 8.3 to SL 10 6 3 it off course wouldn't work anymore.
Put the mini HD back in the macBook, reformatted GUID and installed NBM and NBI like (I think I did ) before.
When I put the HD back the system will boot into the desktop , but I do not have trackpad or key board controls. Tried several times.
What guide can I use step by step? For the A06 mini 10V with HD swap method?
Do I need the netbook maker with this method?
Thanks in advance,
