      I've wanted to do this for awhile with my Wind, but haven't found a good way to do it. Any info on where to look for the best method for this?

      I followed this guide:

      The hardest part was that I needed to unplug and replug the external dvd drive to get it to boot from the OSX disk. Also, I needed to install the 1.1 version of the DellEFI tools instead of the version that was bundled on the DellMiniBoot disk.

      where'd you find the 1.1 version of the tools?
      that's something you can add post-install?

      MyDellMini has a google code project page. Here's the download list sorted by download count.


      I was able to install the 1.1 version over the one on the CD post install, but I had to boot from the CD in safe mode to do it.

      some reason you didn't use the latest (1.2a5) one?

      update: I used the 1.2a5 DellEFI tools. I used the options suggested here: www.mydellmini.com/forum/mac-os-x-guides/3743-how-install... and installed the tools twice, once normally, and then once in safe mode.

      awesome. the card reader works now!

      Nice! Haven't tried the card reader yet. I used the 1.1 because I figured it was more compatible with the version of the DellMiniBoot that I used. I guess it doesn't really matter as it's separate from the boot process.

      Next up for me is to get Ubuntu netbook edition running in dual-boot config.

      if anyone finds this page for tips, I highly suggest the trackpad installer from here: www.mydellmini.com/forum/mac-os-x/7007-touchpad-driver-in...
      looks like v17 is the latest that is available, the links for v18 are dead!
