I've been out of the Hackintosh loop for a little bit, and just want to make sure I get things right.

I have a Snow Leopard .dmg, flash drive, and everything else. What version of NBI & NBM I should use?

Also, have people been able to successfully update to 10.6.7?

Snow Leopard .dmg, you mean the retail disc, or something you downloaded? It depends on which version you have, 10.6.0 or 10.6.3.

Yes, there is a thread about 10.6.7 here in this forum.

Well it's from the retail disc. I made it into a .dmg so it can be put onto a flash drive. The version is 10.6.0. I've used it in the past and everything worked, but when 10.6.6 was rolled out I was unable to boot properly. I gave up and went back to Win 7.

OK. I would use NBM/NBI version 0.8.4 RC 1 to do the initial install. That version is good up to 10.6.3, then you need the special NBI found here-
http://dl.dropbox.com/u/863180/Netbo...212351.app.zip

That one is good from 10.6.4 through 10.6.7.

There is a new NBI that rolls the functionality of NBM and NBI into one application called 0.8.5 pre, but when I've tried it it either breaks things and then you have to fix them, or it hangs resulting in a non booting system.

Okay. Thanks.

I guess my next question is, when I get 10.6 installed, should I jump right to 10.6.3, use the NBI you provided, then jump to 10.6.7? Or should I hit each individual one? (ie 10.6.3, 10.6.4, etc,)

You can do it either way. Doing them one at a time takes longer.

Sorry for bumping an "old" topic, but I just wanted to check back in saying I've successfully upgraded to 10.6.7.
