This guide will show you how to create a bootable OS X installation USB flash drive using your PC. (For use with Dell Mini 10v, and Dell Mini 9.)

If you are new to Hackintosh, check out this thread before you install:...


10v, N80, 1 Gig ram, 160 Gig HD, A06 /Windows XP / SL 10.6.6 NBI 0.8.4 Special/ Linux Mint |

Has anyone experienced problems with their SL USB not being recognized by NBI? I plugged my SL USB into a fairly old iBook G3 and it read it just fine, popped up with "Install Mac OS X" with the Snow Leopard dvd.

OS X may not support the particular WiFi card in your 10v, but Ethernet should work. For my Mini 9, I ended up buying a USB WiFi adapter that had OS X drivers (hard to find).
