Yes, I think so. I believe that's what I did.

Thanks! btw I thought you retired your netbook. I had a surface pro 2 but I don't really use it and now that I had revive this netbook, its all I need. Also where is the official guide to install osx snow leopard to this machine?

I found an occasional use for the Mini 9, but it mostly sits unused.

There are a bunch of guides in the Mac section of this forum, though I would not be astonished if some of the links for tools have gone stale.

I was able to use the drivers from support.dell.com (and some from manufacturers website) to get most of the things working (display and wired networking).

Unfortunately, in my case wireless is not working even though broadcom driver has been successfully installed. I ensured that wireless on/off switch is set to enable the wireless device, but no luck.
