I'm new to this, but have read up on it for the past few weeks, so I'm quite clued up now.
I've bought a second hand N140 on eBay with the hope of installing a Win 7 / OSX dual boot to give it to my girlfriend for her birthday. She has a Mac Book Pro at the moment, but would like something portable to take to university.
I've tried two distros so far - MSIWindOSx86 as suggeset by a tutorial, and SnowLeo. Both downloaded from torrent sites.
With both ISOs im getting about 75% through the install and getting an error, either a BaseSystem error, or an Essentials error. I've tried this over DVD, and USB using OSx86 tools, but neither works.
The ISOs seem fine as I am able to install OSX with them on another system with VMWare. I've also tried different RAM as I've been told from googling that RAM might be the issue. Again still giving me the same error.
Could anyone help? Or possibly suggest a way I can get the install onto the device through another means (maybe a Virtual-to-Physical from my VMWare install?)
