I have now got OSX86 Snow Leopard running nicely on my Samsung R700 notebook / laptop thanks to iATKOS S3 v2 so I wanted to share my findings so far and see if anyone can help me get the GeForce 8600M GT, 3954ABG wifi and Marvell 88E8055 ethernet to work? I'm running the 10SR BIOS with 4GB RAM and a 64GB OCZ Agility4 SSD but I'd expect iATKOS S3v2 with the config listed below will work just as well with 1/2GB RAM and a regular HD too.
The touchpad and keyboard work, sound works, SD card slot and the DVD drive are all fine. The laptop display is only running at 1024x768 currently but at least its displaying an image, which it failed to do under Leopard-based OSX86 distros. I'm not going to bother trying to get the full res (1440x900) activated until I've got a proper, working GPU kext. Neither of the NV enablers included with iATKOS S3 did anything to improve the QE/GL/res support - in fact NVEnabler causes real display trouble on the R700 and I would advise not to bother installing the included Natit NV enabler either.
When choosing the installer customization options, I use all the defaults but I choose the following kexts in addition:
Voodoo PS/2 (Touchpad doesn't work with Apple PS/2 kext)
I've got it dual-booting with KXStudio 12.04.3 amd64 so I'm greatly impressed already, even without QE/GL or networking!
I've not started on trying to get wifi/eth working yet but I've had a bit of a read into the GPU. Apparently the NVkush.kext should be able to get QE/GL working with the R700's 8600M but I may have to run in 32bit mode? I've already tried this kext:
but it didn't work.
