I have installed iAtkos 10.6.3 with success, read online to download legacy kernel for the 10.6.8 combo update which I downloaded from Apple installed, didn't reboot, installed the kernel package, and ran the kext wizzard and then rebooted. Everything loaded fine but took away my ethernet. So I went back to 10.6.3 and decided to do somewhat of a slower update, 10.6.6 and work up, lost internet with that.

 

I am for a loss, any suggestions..

Should I try re-installing the legacy kernels or just backup kexts from/System/Library/Extensions then update then restore?

Ok so I backed up S/L/E to a folder on my desktop. Now, I haven't backed up my kernels before.. I also assume I should use kexts wizard am I correct?

for kernels, just copy the kernel you use from your os x disk
