callymero -- Do not use voodoo PS/2, use instead Apple PS/2. The Voodoo PS/2 randomly not working with GX700 hardware, i do not know why. Try this: shutdown and remove the laptop battery for 10-20 seconds then install again.

A little guide how to install Snow in this laptop with Windows 7 dual boot:

For dual OS make two partitions (or three in my case). First partition 60G FAT32 - for MAC, second partition 60G NTFS for Windows 7, third partition formatted NTFS for data.

- Install first Windows 7 in the second partition. Next insert Iatkos S3 V2 disk and choose ONLY this options:
- Bootloader -- AsereBLN v1.1.9
- Bootloader options - Ethernet
- Patches - /Extra directory
- fakesmc
- Disabler
- RTC
- EVO reboot
- Sleep Enabler
- Laptop Hardware - Battery, Card Reader and TSC Sync

- NTFS-3G - Both (You can remove later and install Paragon NTFS)

- Drivers -- SATA/IDE - AHCI SATA
- Intel SATA/IDE
- JMicron SATA/IDE
-- PS/2 - Apple PS/2

-- VGA - NVEnabler

When the installation is finished you can update the system but you have to remove first the Sleep Enabler.
Update from Software Update, reboot and you have a working 10.6.4 Snow.

Now have to dowload and install:
-- CPU Power Management -- Latest Voodoo Power Mini
-- Sound -- Latest Voodoo HDA
-- Sleep -- search Insanely Mac forum for Sleep Enabler patched for 10.6.4.

If you have problems with the USB download and install ##### from tonymacx86 blog and choose only the USB patch from advanced options.

Best regards

Thank you very much Ghostdust for your guide, i was able to install 10.6.3 and upgrade to 10.6.4 via Software Update, just one problem though: can't get the dreaded soundcard to work. Tried the AppleHDA with no success, i will search through the forums some more, if it doesn't work i'll try the iAtkos 10.6.4 distro.
BTW, after updating, the kexts in /Extra didn't load so i had to use Kext Utility, maybe this helps somebody

Use the Voodoo HDA kexts. For me is working well but you have to remove first Apple HDA.
