Default mini 10v which Leopard disk?? - 09-24-2009, 05:07 PM

Hi,
I am a newbie. I am getting a Dell mini 10v for my birthday. I want to boot it to Mac OS X. . . but am not sure if the Leopard disk I have is the correct one to put on a USB drive.
The disk says Mac OS X Leopard Upgrade disk version 10.52Z691-6039-A

Is this the right one ??
Thanks,
JJJet

You cannot use a Leopard upgrade disk... you need a retail Leopard 10.5.6 (preferably) disk

or you can use a Snow Leopard "upgrade" disk for $30 ($25 from Amazon, last I checked)


 Mini 10v  | 2Gb RAM | 320 Gb HDD | Ubuntu 10.04 | OSX 10.6.3 | NBI .8.4RC1 | Chameleon Bullet Theme | BIOS A05 | USB Wake : OFF | USB Legacy : ON | No BlueTooth

Thanks for your reply.
Just to be absolutely sure I understand, since I have never done any hacking before,
You can use a retail Snow Leopard disk by itself?
or do you need the Leopard 10.5 retail disk also?
Thanks again.

The upgrade disk works, too.
I have tried that.

But the 10.5.6-retail DVD is better.
An install with this version is easier.

Would the directions be the same to install the Snow Leopard install disk to a usb drive as the original 10.5?

You do not need Leopard, you can simply purchase Snow Leopard

Yes, you can follow Mechdrew's guides or any of the NetbookInstaller announcement threads.
