My friend asked me to install OSX on his laptop so... I decided I will give it a shot..
It is a HP DV7-3065dx with the following specs:
2.40 GHz AMD Turion II Ultra Dual-Core Mobile Processor M600
ATI Mobility Radeon HD 3200
Some Audio Chipset I didn't feel like researching...
Atheros AR9285

What I have done so far
Downloaded & burned iAtkos S3 V2 & Hazard to blank DVD's
Prepared a USB Drive with the 10.6.8 combo update, a kext for the video, network and Voodoo HDA, and the 10.6.8 Legacy Kernel
What I plan on doing...
Using iAtkos or Hazard to boot to the OSX installer
Install OS X with the AMD kernel (whichever disk I can get to boot first)
Don't install anything else
After a HOPEFULLY sucessful installation I will boot to OS X and install the 10.6.8 combo update while I have ######, the 10.6.8 legacy kernel, VoodooHDA and ###### open.
Install all the kexts I downloaded, the legacy kernel and VoodooHDA (check ###### for any specific options for my hardware also...) after the installation is over,
Finally, reboot to a hopefully fully working 10.6.8 installation with QE/CI, working Wi-Fi & ethernet, and working sound.

Considering that I don't want to mess up I would like to have some suggestions or tips that would help me out with this process.

I also have a few questions:
Can you get the touch buttons working on the top?
Does the built-in webcam work?
& Is there anybody who has either done this before or has any hardware similiar to the specs listed above?
