Upgrading 10.5.7 to 10.5.8?

So I have a hackintosh running 10.5.7. The originally installation was done using an ideneb install disc. Pretty happy with the machine as it sits, but would like to upgrade to 10.5.8 to be able to transfer stuff onto my iPad. I have tried installing 10.6 a couple of different ways and can't get it to boot.


The machine has an older intel 845grg motherboard with a single core socket 478 p4 processor, 2gb of ram, a DVD drive and 40 gig hard drive both pata, and an nvidia agp video card,


Runs stable with voodoo kernel.


I have tried to update it to 10.5.8 with the ideneb combo update and the install breaks with a "waiting for root device" error. I suspect the update is breaking or overwriting the kext(s) needed to recognize the PATA drives. Any thoughts on how to fix this?
