Default Mini 9 RunCore 10.6.8 boots to kernal panic - 04-27-2012, 04:55 PM

I just used MechDrew's guide for using a Intell Mac to install SL on my mini 9.

Method 4: Direct Install from Mac to SSD/HDD | Guides | OS X | mechdrew

I did all the updates to 10.6.8 on my 32GB RunCore (1st generation) and installed it into the m9. Upon boot up I get the grey Apple logo screen and then it immediately goes into a Kernal Panic screen with the message in various languages to restart by holding down the power button.

I ran both the stock WinXP card and 10.5.7 on the RunCore using DellEFI 1.2a5 and my guide on this site.

One thought in the Post-Install section this is what is said;

3. Once you get to the Finder Desktop, you should download (if necessary) and run the NetbookInstaller 0.8.3 application. If a warning prompt shows up asking, "Are you sure you want to open it?" click Open. Select the following options:
  • Volume: <your netbook HDD/SSD>
  • Install Chameleon 2 NBI bootloader
  • Install General Extensions
I UNchecked all the other boxes that were checked by default because they weren't listed. Should I have left these others checked?

The Instructions show 10.6.2. Is the problem due to the 10.6.8 updates?
