Everything worked OK, then changed CPU from e7300(iMac8,1) to e8200, changed macmodel to imac9,1 in Fakesmc plist - otherwise had no boot at all
+ then added another 2Gb RAM bank an now it stops booting at:
08.10.09 21:31:21	   kernel  IOAPIC: Version 0x20 Vectors 64:87
08.10.09 21:31:21	   kernel  ACPI: System State [S0 S3 S4 S5] (S3)
---stops here
If I remove any of the banks it looks like:
08.10.09 21:31:21	   kernel  IOAPIC: Version 0x20 Vectors 64:87
08.10.09 21:31:21	   kernel  ACPI: System State [S0 S3 S4 S5] (S3)
08.10.09 21:31:21	   kernel  RTC: Only single RAM bank (128 bytes) 
08.10.09 21:31:21	   kernel  mbinit: done (64 MB memory set for mbuf pool)
and boots normally
i'm using PCI EFI 10.3, FakeSmc 2

I've deleted old dsdt.aml and booted with 4Gb, then made new one, so it works
