With the release of NetbookInstaller 0.8.3 RC4, I've updated NetbookCD to the same version. The biggest new feature in this release is 10.6.2 support, so now you can use this to fix a broken SL update.

Just want to remind everyone that not all DVD drives are compatible with the Mac OS X Installer. If you are able to boot from this CD but not into the Installer, and none of the troubleshooting tips work, it is most likely a bad disc or a bad DVD drive.

So without further ado, here is the NetbookCD 0.8.3 RC4 Release:
ISO (79.3 MB)
Compressed ZIP (36.8 MB)

I don't think any progress has been made with A06 and A07 BIOS. You'll still need to downgrade.

When I installed SL yesterday using the Netbook RC4 cd it did not install the bootloader for me but no biggie just booted off the cd like the leopard method and ran NBI.

Thanks for the great software.

I think I may have broken something in this release. Rather, I think something got broke in the postboot image meklort made. So the tradeoff is in this release there is 10.6.2 support, but not auto-install of NetbookInstaller. Crap...

Ya... Looks like I may have broken a couple of things. I'll try to fix everything this weekend (or over thanksgiving break).

Any idea what it could have been? The postboot image was about double the size, so it doesn't look like something was deleted. Maybe some of the new code is conflicting with the old?

I had xcode generate the image, and it was having problems calculating the correct size, so I bumped it up (some of the extra is free space).

It might have something to do with that or just the code changes.

I didn't really test that image (I mostly just made sure that 10.6.2 was working out of the box), so I'll make sure to do so in the future.
