Hi Everyone,

I've recently purchased a Vaio M11M1E, it comes with intel atom n450... and i know this has been a hard task installing SL but i've read and seen videos where its possible... so anyway

i've got ##### from the osx86 10.6.3 installation guide...and i switch the disks after ##### boots up on the screen. when i goto boot the installation screen of snow leopard, it loads the kexts and stuff but before it gets any further it displays a message saying

efi_inject_get NULL yada yada yada...

how do i get past this screen?

I have also tried using the iportable 10.6.2...i put the dmg on the usb and made it a mbr...the thing is i havent got an installed version of mac osx...so i cant run copycat...anyway...i tried booting it and it wont load(spose for obvious reasons)...but is there another way i can get SL to load up.

any help is much appreciated

cheers

I have just got this netbook as well.
I bought it hoping to get snow leopard on it.
I first tried installing from a usb, but I couldn't figure it out.

Then I got a external dvd drive.
I have tried two different distributions.
I tried Ideneb 1.6 Lite and Iatkos
neither worked.
They both just hung at the apple logo

So then I typed "-x -v"
Ideneb then hung at

"ACPI : System state [S0 S3 S4 S5] (S3)"

Iatkos got further but it hung at

"Waiting for boot volume with UUID CA70EDFA-5C0F-3EE1-85C1-549AD20F9B35"
"Waiting on <dict ID="0"><key>IOProviderClass</key>string ID="1">IOResources</string><key>IOResource Match</key><string ID="2">boot-uuid-media</string></dict>

I wonder if anyone knows what I have to do?
Cheers

Anyone actually got this going, or at least got into the OSX installer?!

Been trying for ages now, and have attempted with all sorts of distros encompassing versions of OSX from 1.4 - 10.6 & the original retail DMG, without ever getting further than the ACPI info or a few lines below that!!

Annoyed because the vaio M is one of the very few non-ugly netbooks out there!
