A) NOT BOOTED TILL HOME SCREEN

1. ACPI_SMC_PlatformPlugin:start – waitforService(resourceMatching(AppleINtelCPUPowerManagement)timed out.

Everybody say

c.

Intel Intel HD Graphics (GMA for H55) No 10.6.5-10.6.8 will hang on boot, rename/remove AppleIntelHDGraphics.kext, and AppleIntelHDGraphicsFB.kext from /S/L/E

d.

Tips:

1.

Get to terminal from installation CD-> Utilities without installing, from here youcan modify all the kexts

2. If there are booting errors because of kexts,

boot with -s 
mount -uw / 
rm -rf /System/Library/Extensions/GeForce.kext 
rm -rf /System/Library/Extensions/Ge*.kext 
rm -rf /System/Library/Extensions/NV*kext 
exit


Solution
Problem with IntelHDGraphics. Deleted all AppleIntelHDGraphics*.kext then booted for me
 
 
B) No Sound
 
Realtek drivers didn't work.

Solution: Install VoodoHD drivers from tonymac installer.
