Thanks for the answer but this was what i tried first..... sorry that I didnt say it at the beginning.
I got a kernal panic.
I booted with -v and made a foto, maybe this is better ...... I know.....

Before I updated I on 10.6.2 (Dualboot with W7, which is still working ;-) )..... see signature.

Thanks a lot for your help!

I agree. And to be safe on my gf's machine I disabled software update from even checking for any updates to avoid 6.4 type "accidents" . On both the Mini9 and 10v my favorite install remains 10.6.2 and NBI 8.3Final.

Sorry Zirus, I don't have anything else to add......

**OFFICIAL** Mac OS X 10.6.4 Update Thread - 06-15-2010, 08:01 PM



***UPDATED 10.6.4 Upgrade Instructions***
1) Install this version of NBI (From post 67): http://dl.dropbox.com/u/863180/Netbo...212351.app.zip
2) Install the 10.6.4 update.
3) Once it reboots, you should see the NBI logo at boot. Be patient until it reboots (takes a while).

If you've already installed 10.6.4 with the old version of NBI and are getting a kernel panic, follow these instructions:

1) Boot up holding down the shift key. At the grey screen with your boot disc, type recovery=y. You should see this show up in the bottom left corner of the screen. Hit enter. This should let your machine boot into recovery mode, without lots of extensions loaded.
2) Run the new version of NBI from here: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/863180/Netbo...212351.app.zip
3) Reboot. You should be good to go now!

If for whatever reason you can't get the New NBI on your netbook, you can fix the issue that caused the KP by decreasing the size of your kernel extensions. Boot into recovery mode and then open the Terminal from your /Applications/Utilities folder. Type "cd /System/Library/Extensions" and hit enter. Then type "sudo rm -rf NVD* ATI* GeForce* AppleIntelGMAX3100*" and hit enter. Run NBI, reboot, and you should be good!

Someone may very well have a solution, but unfortunately not me. If your idea of backing up from windows doesn't work you could always remove the drive and put it in a case which can then be accessed via another Mac. Not convenient, but you should be able to get all your Data.


Edit: What about this?.....Post #541... http://www.mydellmini.com/forum/gene...thread-55.html
