Problem with updating iAtkos S3 10.6.3 to 10.6.7

Hey! So, I searched the forum to see if anyone's got a problem like mine, but found no such topic.


I'm using a Sony VAIO VGN-N325E (specs ar in my signature). I successfully installed Leopard 10.5.6 once but it wasn't the version I needed, so I changed it to iAtkos S3 v.2. I have no problems at all during the install, but after I boot the computer, it can only start in safe mode. I read in some forum that I have to boot it in safe mode and then go to \system\library\extensions and delete the kexts for my video card. I did that and I have no idea how (because if I don't install them during the installation process, the computer just greets me with a silver screen and nothing more) it worked. I can successfully boot it. I even tried restarting the computer a few times to make sure it stays that way.


Then I read on the OSx86 forum how to update that to 10.6.7 and then to 10.6.8. I start following the instructions for the 10.6.7 update and everything goes smoothly. Until I restart of course. Then it either gives me a kernel panic message coming from my wi-fi card kext (which goes away after the first restart) or it loads but it only loads a silver screen. I've tried it probably a few dozen times the last 3 days and it never changes. I even tried installing the update while in safe mode so I won't need to remove the video card kexts, but the result is the same.


How do I overcome that? I need to update it to 10.6.8 and I can't do that without going through the 10.6.7 update (or at least that's what I understood from the other forum) :(


Edit: I managed to get past all that {censored}, but now the IO802.11.kext causes kernel panic and I cant boot in normal mode (only safe) unless it's deleted. Is there a way to make it work?
