The method on Mechdrew's site works fine for SL.

Also see here..... http://www.mydellmini.com/forum/gene...-official.html

You don't want to "install" to the device you plan to install OSX from onto the A90, you want to do a "Restore" from the disk utilities to that device.

In my case I did a SL restore to a USB stick, then ran the NetbookInstaller package to let it modify that USB stick (both steps done on a Mac), then booted it on the A90 and installed SL.

The 8GB part is where you're going to need to do more work and makes it more of a hassle. I dropped a 64GB RunCore in mine because I needed the space and money wasn't a problem at the time.

There's a guide here on how to do a selective install, not sure if it's still relevant though. You'll likely have to jury rig something together with a mish-mash of both methods.
