Preparing an install USB without access to a Mac

Hey everyone! I apologize if any this has already been explained, but I spent the last few days searching for ways to get this working and I felt it was about time to ask for some help.


I'm trying to install Snow Leopard 10.6 on my Alienware M11x (R1). I've been looking at this guide http://kallaus.com/?p=11 and this one http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php...=0#entry1579170 and I've placed the install DVD image on my flash drive using TransMac, but I can't run NetbookBootMaker because I don't have access to a Mac. Are there any workarounds for this? Trying to boot with another usb drive with NetbookInstaller gives me a "can't find mach_kernel" message which I'm not sure is related this at all.


I should probably also mention I'm wanting to install it on a separate partition alongside Windows and Ubuntu, I haven't read anywhere that this is even possible but I am assuming it is for now. I'm not willing to reformat my entire drive for this. Anyway, any help would be very much appreciated.
