    Default Problem With Dell Mini 9

    Hi all,

    I had a perfectly working hackintoshed Dell Mini 9 (running Leopard) up until a few days ago. I used the tutorial found here: How To: Hackintosh a Dell Mini 9 Into the Ultimate OS X Netbook - Dell mini 9 hackintosh guide - Gizmodo

    Just recently however it's started freezing at the start of OS X. Just an Apple, grey screen, and the little spinning boot wheel. I've tried rebooting from the X11 cd I originally used, but I can't seem to get the Mini 9 to boot from an external drive. I've tried selecting "CD/DVD drive" from the Dell boot screen, I've tried boot options from the Chameleon Boot: prompt (though I don't know many)- does anyone know of a way to get it to boot from an external drive now that Chameleon/OSX is on there?

    Thanks!
    Ben

    A little more info!

    Right before the crash, I was trying to access Pandora. A box came up saying it required an additional 1024k for something (I'm really sorry, I wasn't paying too much attention) and so I clicked yes and Pandora began to play instantly. On restart, however, I get the never ending startup.

    Info on the Chameleon build though: When I hit any key to enter the setup page, it says:

    Darwin/x86 boot v5.0.132 - Chameleon v2.0 r431
    Build date: 2009-04-01 15:17:35
    1014MB memory

    If I press a key, it shows up below after a boot prompt (i.e. Boot: aldkfj)

    Any help is greatly appreciated!!

    Lot of "fails" in there- typos are probably all my fault though

    If you think it is because of something installed try booting with the -s flag. If this allows you to get to the desktop then check your logs and see if you can zero in on what was installed. If you find it delete it and repair permission and you should be all fixed up.
