iAtkos S3 V2 10.6.3 on Acer Aspire 5315


Hello OSX Community.

As stated in the title I wish to install iAtkos S3 V2 10.6.3 Snow Leopard on my Acer Aspire 5315. My laptop specs are as follows:

Intel Celeron T1400 @ 1.74GHz 533MHz FSB (I want to upgrade it to a T6500, but not now)

Intel GM965 running at 533 MHz FSB (allows CPU upgrade to a 800 MHz FSB, see here: Aspire 5315 CPU Step-by-Step Upgrade Guide)

3GB Ram (was 1GB, I added a 2GB ram)

Intel X3100 Graphics (integrated into the chipset)

Atheros AR5007 (or as olarila.com Sytem Info says: AR242x / AR542x Wireless Network Adaptor and has a green tick by it?!)

Latest BIOS - 1.45

I have searched different forums (I don't think listing them would be necessary) and I concluded that I need to enable these settings when installing to get it working:

legacy kernal (vanilla)

Chameleon v2 RC5 Bootloader


Voodoo PS/2 (for touchpad)

Voodoo Power

I installed it once -just to test the sound and wireless- yet I had no sound or wireless. What do I need to do? I know that it has been done before and Kexts exist for different distro/versions but I have not found an answer to this version. Can I modify Kexts myself (I don't know much about them though)?

Thanks in advance

It's been over a year that I am trying to get this sorted.

PS: I would like to run in x64 mode if possible

EDIT:This is some more info about the sound and wireless adaptor:

82801H (ICH8 Family) HD Audio Controller

Ven ID/Dev ID:8086/284b with a magnifying glass

AR242x / AR542x Wireless Network Adaptor (PCI-Express)

Ven ID/Dev ID:168c/001c with a green tick
