Kernel panic during 10.6.6 combo update

I'm posting here because I've almost forgotten a lot about the OSx86 scene since two years ago when I gave up trying to get sleep and hibernate to work on my old desktop (10.5.2).


Okay, so I installed Snow Leopard 10.6.3 retail on my Gateway laptop dualbooted with Windows 7 (GPT).

Worked alright. WiFi worked, sound worked, webcam worked out of the box

So I wanted to get my graphics card working so I tried following checco's guide to get my ATi 5650m working.

Said I had to combo update to 10.6.6.

So I did that, first without bootflags (using [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] legacy) and later in safe mode (-x flag). Got a kernel panic near the end of the update when I booted with both methods. Bunch of black highlighted lines with white text showed up on top of the GUI. It was repeated lines kernel panic and I saw some kext at the top called IOPlatformFamily.


Why would that kext cause a kernel panic during the combo update? That's what I'm trying to figure out.


Do I need to use some kind of boot flag on [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] legacy disk or should I install Chameleon first from [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url]/manually on an EFI partition and use a boot flag from there?
