I need to install 10.6 on my vaio from my external HD as my dvd drive is not working any more :)

Have looked for a guide and did not find one. Have been out of the OSX86 loop for a while.

Back to being a noob I guess :rolleyes:

I would really appreciate any help thanks.

If you have OS X already installed on a computer you can "restore" the Snow Leopard DMG to the external drive (formated HFS+). That should do it.

Sadly, I don't know a method for non-OS X installs.
