Default Can I downgrade NetBookInstaller 8.3RC2? - 10-01-2009, 11:53 AM

What is the safest way to do this?

Can I just run an earlier version over the top?

Many thanks.

Yes, you can downgrade by running the "old version" and regenerating dsdt.aml file

May I ask... why do you need to downgrade?

Since my update to to the release candidate softwares I've lost my wifi, it's got a cross in the box.

I'm running 10.6.1, I've tried toggling all the bios options but had no luck.

I might even have to return to 10.6.0 if I have no luck.

Only problem is that I killed my 17in MacBookPro yesterday, HD failure.

i can recommend you the Western Digital WD5000BEVT (Blue), 500 GB, for the MacBook. The drive is very quiet, I can't hear it

Is this done automatically by NBM or do I have to do it myself? If it's manual, how do I go about doing so? Thanks.

Run NetbookInstaller and make sure you have the option checked to generate the dsdt.aml
