In Topic: Dell e520 ICH8R Retail Snow Leopard Install

Well, actually it will work, but not by just inserting the DVD in the drive.

This is the method, taken from my install guide

But is that method retail? From me reading it it seems as if you have to backup all system etc every time you want to update? I would prefer a vanilla style method where updates aren't so tricky. For example if I had lots of apps I'm guessing I would have to back it all up?

Please correct if wrong or if you know of a way I can install Snow Leopard on Dell E520 retail style. Please also let me know if I am using these 'retail' 'vanilla' terms in the wrong sense!


also - anyone know if a vanilla (there i go again) snow leopard (or even leopard) install for the Advent 4211?

Hi blkhockeypro19

Just out of interest how long do you think it'll be until you can get a 'universal' boot disc out? Understand if it's hard to gauge but just worked out how to get iPC 10.5.6 on Dell E520 (although installing snow leopard through it doesn't work ) :) so wondering if I should sort that out - install apps etc if it's going to be a while until this flies or if it is worth waiting.

Happy to be patient but do you think we're talking days, weeks, months?

Thanks so much for your work

I am also running a Dell E520 and have tried the boot CD, same errors as in post #14

Looking forward to the update as this seems the most likely way of me getting SL on Dell.

Thanks for all your work and hope update comes soon :D
