Hey all!

I got things up and running following most of this guide. I kept installing successfully, but when I booted into OSX I got caught in reboot loops and I couldn't read what the errors were, but I caught something about "efi_inject_get_devprop_string NULL trying stringdata" and tried various boot options.

I reinstalled using the default bootloader (AsereBLN), just to make sure it's not the bootloader tripping me up.

I imaged NBI083 onto a small USB disk and with that plugged in I'm able to boot successfully (I have no idea why). I installed some of the kexts recommended and looked up a specific kext for the GT 130M graphics card that seems to work beautifully.

I'm going to need to fix the bluetooth and potentially get a wireless dongle to really be running at speed, but that's something I'll tackle soon.

I'm going to check out whether it's a good idea to upgrade to 10.6.8. Hopefully it is!
