This is somewhat related, as I am getting the exact same text that the OP had (ending with Patching kernel mach_kernel)
The problem is I cannot even get into the installer to attempt an install. I am on an HP mini 210-1079CA netbook, I have setup the usb drive with the Snow Leopard image, and ran Netbookbootmaker and restored the OSinstall.pkg file as the tutorials say.
I put the USB in the HP and boot, press F9, choose the USB drive.
If I allow Darwin countdown, I get to a grey screen that does nothing. If I interrupt the countdown, I get a grey screen with the available drives, and the option to boot in verbose, single user, etc... I pick verbose and that is when I receive the mach_kernel message.
Any ideas? I have followed the various guides with no luck of ever even getting into the installer.
I have tried installing iAtkos v7 as well, but could not get into the installer either, which is discouraging, because it does not seem to be just something wrong with a single method.
Any help appreciated.
