I am installing Snow Leopard 10.6.3 onto my Acer One 751h netbook. I have been following this guide. What I have had to do differently though is use the NBI 0.84 RC1 to get into the installer as otherwise by simply using the bootloader that got installed on there already by the netbookinstaller app, it gave me a kernal panic as soon as I tried booting it. The next thing I had to do was get the JMicron36xATA.kext and inject it into the extensions.mkext on the Install DVD (on usb stick), by following this guide. This was so that it could see my IDE internal HDD.
It installed no problem, it even came up with that the installation was successful rather than what a lot have often had "installation failed" (although it has installed), but when I start it up (obviously going through the NBI on the USB, when I click enter normally it will come up with the apple logo and the loading wheel, and then a symbol will appear on the logo (image below)

So I boot into Verbose mode so I can see where it stops (image below in link)
So I searched "still waiting for boot device" and came across this tutorial but I try following it by entering what is quoted below,
cp -pr /Volumes/Mac OS X Install DVD/System/Library/Extensions/*ATA* /Volumes/Macintosh HD/System/Library/Extensions/.
but I have this (quoted below) appear which obviously is showing that it didn't do anything.
usage: cp [-R [-H |-L | -P]] [-apvX] source_file target_filecp [-R [-H |-L | -P]] [-apvX] source_file ... target_directory
I am enjoying myself doing this, and thats mainly what I use my netbook for, to mess around with it lol and I am pleased that I have managed to get really far without asking for help, but I do need a bit of help now lol
Thanks for the help and if you need to specs of my netbook, they are here.... The only thing that is different is that I have 2GB ram in instead of the 1gb that came with it previously.
