after 4x re-installs of the systems I finally got it to work, and i`ll tell you how it was done.

Like JaS said, you should start booting with arguments
-v -f -s -x

And then enter this command at the prompt:

mount -uw /
mv /system/library/exrensions/r2d2.kext /system/library/extensions
rm -rf /system/library/extensions.mkext
rm -rf /system/library/extensions.kextcache

Note: if I didn`t delete these last 2 files, when i booted with -x argument, the computer simply shut down. lol

now, reboot with -x argument to get into visual safe mode
- put osx86 dvd into the disc and then install the GMA900 package.
- open disk utility, repair permissions
- reboot

here`s the diff part, cuz i won`t work yet..

reboot in safe mode again with -x argument
- put os86 dvd and install the radeon x1600 package
- open disk utility and repair permissions
- reboot

and now, everything worked fine!

thanks, please tell me your experiences with same hardware.
