    ok, try this and let me know how it works for you. Download the snowywind torrent (2.9gb) Before you make an install disc, swap the msi specific kexts out and install the 2 specific kexts for the AAO. then,create your bootable image disc and install. follow the directions on the download file and you can now update your system with no problems. I am currently at 10.6.1. let me know how it works for you. simple and thanks to Dalton for the idea. Leave your mark on this page to get it going. take you about 30 minutes from start to finish.

    I guess telling us what the two kexts are is rather inconsequential, right?

    Of course us knowing those kexts are not needed we can just easily guess what they are :\

    Sounds good. Can we simply install snowywind and then install any AAO specific kexts or pkgs afterwards?

    Also I'm dualbooting with XP on another partition, can I wipe my OS X partition and install snowywind without touching my other partitions?

    Is the 2.9GB snowywind version only for upgrading or can it be installed as a full version ?

    i would install in the packaging before hand. You can go about it after, but i would patch it in the image. The snowywind image is 2.9gb . sorry for the delay guys, i was not getting any notifications in my email for some reason.

    How about some sort of manual, howto, walkthrough or whatever you want to call it and helping everyone instead of saying i've done it, it is simple and that is it!
    Anyone with a simple to understand Snow Leopard 10.6.1 and maybe 10.6.2 howto installations from USB including where to download necessary stuff? Oh yeah, I do have the original Snow Leopard DVD.
    Thank you!

    Didn't work for me :( After "successful" installation all I get is a boot screen with an apple and then a grey screen. Do I have to clean the whole hard disk? I used this to install SL on a hard disk with partitions like this:
    10.5.7 // Windows 7 // SL
    I am using Chameleon 2 (I think) as a bootloader.

    i just followed the guide at http://osx.mechdrew.com/guides/nbi1.shtml and holy crap it worked exactly as it said. on my A150 with bios 3309 i just followed the guide exactly and i am surprised. after following the guide the only thing i can see wrong right away (besides sleep, which never works on aspire ones) is the sound, which i hear is solved by installing the voodooHDA kext. i mean, even software update worked to get to 10.6.2!

    note: it seems like netbookinstaller only works with GUID partitions. i had MBR so i could dual boot, but i decided to just repartition my drive to GUID and start fresh with os x SL.
