I'm having a strange issue with my mini9 (previously on 10.6.2)
I downloaded and ran NBI from post#67 and then installed the 10.6.4 combo update downloaded from apple's website. When I first ran the updater, it hang for a whole night without completing. I force-quitted it, rebooted the mini, and re-ran the 10.6.4 update, this time apparently without problem.
When I first rebooted, the NBI logo and spinning wheel sat on the screen for some times (normal I guess), then the computer froze on a blue screen. I rebooted.
Now when I try to boot the mini, I can't get to the desktop. It doesn't panic, booting in verbose gives no error message, but it either hangs at the blue screen before getting to the desktop or gets to the desktop image but never further (the menu bar doesn't appear, the mouse arrow is stuck in the upper left corner, keyboard and mouse are unresponsive). When I boot in recovery mode, everything is fine (except that I have no sound...).
I tried re-running NBI, deleting the Nvidia and GeForce kext, repairing permissions, etc... so far nothing works.
As a last resort I could wipe the drive and start everything from scratch (nothing that can't be replaced or re-installed on this computer), but of course I'd rather not.
Here's my Extra folder if it can help
Thanks for your help

Mini 9 upgrade to 10.6.4 - success - 06-19-2010, 12:19 PM
Sucessful update to 10.6.4 in mini 9
Downloaded Meklort's modified NBI and followed the instruction to the letter.
Used the default settings in NBI without changing anything.
Initial results is everything works (sleep, sound etc). What was back to in-operational was the bluetooth toggle and the internal mic.
Managed to reenable the BT and mic using the workarounds as follows:
- Bluetooth: 10.6.3 Bluetooth On - Use Terminal Mod
- Mic: Dell Mini 9 Audio with Microphone without VoodooHDA (Snow 10.6.2)
Interesting thing is that the mirroring off works after the install (did not work in 10.6.3 for me). Mirroring on screws up the displays but can be reverted. after mirroring off.
