Insert kext into OSx installer pkg

I created my first Hackintosh using a HP Pavilion A6400f and Snow Leopard. http://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c01390590 I upped it with 8GB RAM, EVGA nVidia 8400 video card and new WD Blue 500GB HDD. I chose Snow Leopard because I could still get an install disc and both came out around the same time.

I got 10.6.7 installed. The system threw up a window saying upgrades were available. I checked and it was for 10.6.8. I started the install process and it apparently it was successful. Now the kicker. When I boot now it gets to the Apple logo and hangs. I've tried using and not using PCIRootUID=1 and going into safe mode. What's keeping it from starting?

I read one fix is to replace the ACPIPlatform and IOPCIFamily kexts in 10.6.8 with their 10.6.7 versions. How does one do this?
