    Default First time messing with OS X =[

    Hello everyone, I'm pretty much a beginner with OS X, currently downloading an ISO of snow leopard for my toshiba NB205, i've come across the problem with preparing my usb drive. I don't have a computer or have access to a computer with mac OS X on it, so how do i prepare a USB stick from windows for the Mac OS X install? Also, I would like to dual boot, so should i install windows XP first then Mac OS X? I figured you can configure your partitions via dos during the installs. Thank you for your time guys. Sorry I made the thread so long.

    There is no reason to close it for now, if it's just because no one help you as your thread is about one day old. People don't have to reply to you on your time though.

    As for your info, there are a few threads with similar hardware that you should search for.
    I've came across them but would need to search for them to quote you the links.
    There is also dual booting section to answer some of your questions. All you have to do is reading them.

    Of course, it's alive, otherwise you would not be able to post anything.
    And if you figured out your dilemma then it's excellent.

    Ohh! for people who are having trouble loading up their OS X, i've found this tutorial VERY useful, but I made my own approach instead of following the "rules" since the rules didn't work out for me very well

    InsanelyMac Forum > Installing from USB flash/key/thumb drive...using Windows only tools

    there is the article.... i'll show you what I did in XP (everything was successful for me in XP, if anyone needs any help they can contact me via AIM: the0n34u, since AIM is the only thing i frequently visit everyday)

    you have to fiddle around with the ddmac program though. Instead of creating a boot partition, with the unetbootin program, i just used the ddmac program the whole way. You need an iso for this process.

    In the first field, you put in your iso.
    In the second field, you put your thumb drive in there.
    Instead of unchecking the boot.ini, i USED it, and used C: Drive (or whatever drive you use to boot windows in, since that has a boot.ini)

    The trick to this program is that it doesn't work 100% of the time, i'd say it works 25% of the time, so what i do is i uncheck the question mark to the right of where u select ur USB thumb drive or USB drive, then i choose my thumb drive, recheck it, and try to get it to work, if unsuccessful, start checking random things and rechecking them to get the program working, it takes A LOT, and i mean A LOT of patience and time to get it working right, but all in all, MAKE SURE EVERYTHING is checked when the whole process is running. That should do it =] and good luck to any pioneers that want to follow in after me!
