Default Left 1012 camp and got me one - 04-23-2011, 10:13 PM

Left 1012 camp and got me one of these. For US$350 on my VISA (total) I will play with OS"ten". Nice form factor 6Cell with 2 Gig of RAM.

A keeper.

Is the approach same as the 10V Mechdrew guide?

Pretty much, but be sure to use the correct NetbookInstaller 20100616212351 before upgrading to 10.6.7.

Default Thanks Dan! - 04-26-2011, 05:40 AM

I know. I had an 11z(cely) managed to put retail 10.6.3 by just following the 10v guide and did upgrade to 10.6.6 without patching. Got an endless reboot.

Have NBI 351, but is there a special version for the 2100? So far I have not had success...

Someone claims to have built one, but the link he provided was broken. I've been successful using the 351 build, but it does take some tweaking.

Any hints you can offer would be great! I've tried to modify the 351 build, but seem to be doing it wrong. I'm debating whether to put the HD display in the 2100 or the 10v. If I can get the 2100 running 10.6.7 I'd much rather install it there as I prefer the feel of the 2100 to the 10v, which feels cheap by comparison, but so far works better with OSX.
