Toshiba NB100 Netbook (I-11R version bundled with ubuntu)
USB external DVD player
Iso MSIWindowsx86 (found in the usual places ....)
Time and patience


For the model-11R is strongly to bring the ram from 512MB to 1GB for better performance
If you want wireless networking working you have to change it with a compatible, as AR5007EG for the moment does not work (I used a AR5006EG and is recognized by default leopard as AirPort) Guide to disassemble the laptop here

What works:

-Wifi (if you put a tab compatible)
-Audio from the speakers of the Netbook

What does not work:

-Audio Output
-Wifi (if you leave the AR5007EG)
Card reader (I have not yet tried)


- Burn the iso on a DVD at a low speed (2.0x) to avoid errors of the type SAM Multimedia, etc. ...

- Connect the DVD player via usb (for the usb port I took one on the left, the other on the right I have had problems)

- Insert the DVD into the player and turn the laptop

- Just the word appears Toshiba press F2

- Go to the Advanced section and the last line, the one that concerns the hard disk, click and select COMPATIBILITY

- Save the configuration and exit the BIOS

- As soon as the logo reappear Toshiba press F12

- A schedule for the boot

- Select CD / DVD

- Then load Darwin ... just wait and appears press F8

- Write-v (the "-" is placed on that " ? ' ") And press ENTER

- Wait and expect loads more ... (This may take several minutes)

- After this time you will end up with the Mac installer ..

- Select the language .. go ahead ... .. accepted Regulation

- Now you end up with the choice to install on the hd

- Click on Utilities, and then Disk Utility

- At the screen, click on the partition dell'hd (disks3 etc. ..) initializes press ... choose an option Mac OS Extended (journaled) .. the name given to the partition and press initializes

- Once the format and get back close to previous screen

- Click on leopard (on behalf of the partition above) and go forward

- Go ahead and control dell'hd ignored ..

- Now start the installation ... expect a lot (normally there should be about 50 minutes to install)

- At the end of installation reboot (if he does he nn ..)

- Remove the dvd player, and from the Darwin screeb press ENTER

- If all goes well you will find the welcome screen with a sound background ..

- Set up more ... and suddenly you have successfully installed Leopard 10.5.4 on your toshiba
