Default How to setup Snow Leopard on mini 10v with A06 BIOS - 09-11-2009, 12:06 AM

SL won't install the normal way with A06 BIOS it gives KP all the time I didn't want to downgrade Bios as I have had a mini 10 stop responding on the downgrade and the MB is "Fornication Upon Consent of the King" after this happens so I won't take the chance again apparently this happens...

Default NBI 0.8.2 crashing.....

I can confirm that NBM/NBI 0.8.3 RC1 does not work with this method. The NBI app throws up a kernel panic at "generating extension caches," which requires a restart and destroys the OS (instant kernel panic on gray apple screen). Had to remove the HD and reinstall the OS from scratch.

I tried NBM/NBI 0.8.2, but NBI still crashes at "generating extension caches." Tick/untick dsdt file option makes no difference.

I have a theory this might be a result of my N280 (1.66ghz) processor, which differs slightly from the standard N270.

Any ideas?

Is there a way I can install all the NBI stuff without running NBI?

There where some kernel panic crashes, but it happens random, sometimes during a download or after a while of working.

Thankツエs again for the help!!
I had te same problem with the trackpad and I got it sorted, but I can't remember how I will try and figure it out I think I installed NBI 0.8.3 rc1 but unchecked everything except reinstall bootloader. I am trying a dual boot with this guide I will see if I can remember how I did it.

Just to get the facts, you install NBM 0.8.2 while still connected to your normal mac, then shut down, take the drive fit back into mini 10v, starts up fine into OSX 10.6, then you load NBI 0.8.2 and it crashes. Is this correct?

That is correct. (though I boot up into 10.6.1, to be precise).

Okay, before you load NBI you have a working OSX 10.6.1, what is not working at this point? (I am trying to see what NBI add that makes it crash)

As far as I can tell, everything works except for the stuff that NBI is supposed to fix (*horrific* trackpad control that jumps all over the screen, no sound, etc.).

NBI 0.8.2 always crashes at the same point: "generating extension caches." The kernel panic at this point destroys the OS, making it impossible to boot up again. Afterward, I need to reinstall the entire OS from scratch.

Hence my question: is there a way I can install all of the NBI 0.8.2 fixes without using NBI?

Just finished installing my apps and applied the 10.6.1 update. About to fix permissions and run NBM then shutdown and reinstall into my mini.

Wish me luck!

0.8.2 keeps crashing at the same point for me. It actually completed once, but that was it. I think I had hibernation unticked at the time.
Other than that time it kernel panics at the generating extension caches bit.

Everything installed without a hitch. Everything works...I am having issues with it after it goes to sleep. It froze upon wake up, forcing a hard reboot, but I have only tried it once. I'm going to repair permissions and give it another go.

Thanks Jacques for the great instructions!

Ok...seems USB Legacy support got re-enabled somehow. Went in and fixed it and confirmed that the change did save.

Sleep works now, but no sound after sleep, and bluetooth became unavailable after wakeup. Restarting the system brings the sound and bluetooth back.

Do you have the N270 OR the N280 processor?

Meklort should load NBI 10.8.3 rc2 tonight I will try it and let you know it should fix sound after sleep and bluetooth problems.

You have to use NBI to fix sound and trackpad. I am trying a few things to see if I can solve your problem, on the google code page there is someone with the same problem as you (issue 94)

I had the same problem with nbi 8.2. When I tried to install, I got kernel panic at creating extension caches. It worked, after I installed only create dsdt file and after that was finished, I installed the mini 10v extensions.

I still donツエt know, how to solve the random kernel panic problem. The system crashes when I download big files (such as iwork testversion) or during the timemachine backup.
If anybody knows, how to solve that problem, please let me know.
But even with those issues Iツエm already enjoying my little mac!
