It is safe to cancel the installation, you will just have to re format/partition the drive on your next install attempt

The version of Netbook Bootmaker you want to use is 0.8.3pre with the mini 1012, if you use the more current version it will not work properly and give you kernel panic.

There is a step by step guide on page 18 of this thread, and that is the method I used successfully in order to get 10.6.3 on my mini 1012.

Note: You will need to have a Macintosh/Hackintosh with Snow Leopard installed in order to use Netbook Bootmaker.

So this one, http://www.mydellmini.com/forum/gene...l-release.html will not work? I am looking for Netbook maker 0.8.3 RC1 instead?

No, that version will not work

If you read my previous post, the instructions are written in full, step-by-step, on page 18 of this thread.

You will also see the recommended version of Netbook Bootmaker is 0.8.3pre, not 0.8.3 RC1.

0.8.3 RC1 will give you kernel panic if used on a 1012, you NEED 0.8.3pre for a successful install.

hmm, there is no 0.8.3pre on http://www.mydellmini.com/forum/gene...2-os-x-18.html I am going to assume you are talking about 0.8.4pre as that is the only thing that has "pre" on that page.

Now, if we could get QE / CI working on the 1012, it would be pretty much perfect. That's a long shot though lol.
confirmed as well for me, WIFI works (remark: atheros mini wifi card that comes with dell 1012 out of the box), so good not to have to buy a new card

That would be correct. There is a download link on page 18 with the install guide.

If you follow JedParks guide front to back, you will have a working OS X install on your 1012.

Alrighty! Thanks! I am installing right now. I am weary about trying the 10.6.4 update, but I think I am going to give it a shot, that would be awesome. Thanks again for all the help! Do I need to install the updates in order? 10.6.1 > 10.6.2 > 10.6.3 or can i install 10.6.3 directly?

No problem.

I would not personally advise the move from 10.6.3 to 10.6.4 for a couple of reasons.

1. There is go guarantee that it will work

2. There is no viable reason to move from 10.6.3 to 10.6.4 that I can see on a netbook.

If you do decide to upgrade to 10.6.4, make sure to back up your kernel, and repair permissions before upgrading, or you will most certainly get kernel panic.

You will actually get kernel panic originally no matter what, until you restore your old kernel. make sure that you are familiar with entering in boot commands with the Chameleon bootloader before updating, so that you know how to restore your backed up kernel.

Rhycel has a brief explaination of how he accomplished this on page 18 underneath JedParks installation guide.


Long story short, stick with 10.6.3. Unless you want to completely reinstall, or spend hours getting it to work, maybe.

Is there any fixes for video acceleration? The genie affect in dock is kinda laggy, not sure if thats just because of the system or it needs a kext. No big deal, just would like the affects. Thanks again for all the help! It is working like a champ!

Edit - Does hibernation/sleep work because it seems when I close my monitor it just turns off the monitor and when I goto the Apple logo and click sleep it just makes my screen blank, but still on and when I press the power button I have to enter my password to log back in. Anyway of getting it to work?
