Default Dell mini 1012 hackintosh dillema! - 08-18-2011, 01:59 AM

Hello,

i successfully hackintoshed my dell mini 1012, and everthing worked super-well, but when i tried to shut my laptop down and restart it, the (64 bit kernel message appeared) so i restarted my laptop and booted it up with nbi and it re-worked superly.

My question is,

do i need to boot my laptop up with the nbi usb every single time????

Or is it only me having this dilemma?

The question is, How do you do that?? is arch=i386 or -x32 downloadable & do I have to write it to a USB like the NBI??

or is there any guide(s)?

You don't download arch=i386 or -x32 instead when you boot to the nbi selection menu choose the OSX HDD but don't press enter yet, write "arch=i386"
or "-x32" without the "". Then press enter.
The upgrade to 10.7 may solve it but it is not an issue specific to 10.6 ie. you can update your 10.6 to a higher one it may or may not solve it, but you can always add the flags (arch=i386 or -x32) to the plist file.
If you ever do want to upgrade to 10.7 you will get stuck at a graphics 1240x768 no lower nor higher resolution, and you might face several other issues, but if you do PM me.

BTW Which NBI did you install to your HDD?

I'll try that since it's very annoying to boot up everytime using a USB.

I used NBI 084RC1 too boot up!

If your wondering wether it works ( 2012) as whole then yes it does but he's getting a kernel panic at some point can be resolved though.
