Hardware Compatibility

This is a component level hardware compatibility list. We want to keep it as accurate as possible, but please, do not entirely rely on this list when buying hardware. Add which parts you have working in the categories listed below, or create a new category. Please keep alphabetical order inside the categories. The categories themselves are ordered by popularity. Please list any caveats or problems as well.

  • ONLY add hardware that you have TESTED. Don't add hardware just because you think it might work.
  • Please add hardware into tables.
  • This is for 10.11.1 builds only.

For how to edit the Wiki, please see this thread. Thank you!

Asrock Z97 Extreme4 Intel Z97 chipset System Configuration:
  • CPU: Intel 4790k
  • GPU: Asus GTX 970

Component Status:

  • Shutdown Tick.png
  • Restart Tick.png
  • Sleep Tick.png after disabling 3rd party USB controller in UEFI
  • USB 2.0 Tick.png
  • USB 3.0 Tick.png (without 3rd party USB by Asmedia)
  • Ethernet Tick.png : Intel i218
  • GPU: Yes (with Nvidia Web Drivers)
  • Audio: Onboard ALC1150 Tick.png
  • DSDT Patch from PJALM repository for Asrock Z97 Extreme6
  • Audio from Toleda Patch
  • Ehernet is simply AppleIntelE1000e.kext
  • And of course FakeSMC
  • Install it with nv_disable, first boot with nv_disable, install Nvidia Web Drivers and you will have everything working:)

P8Z77V-LX Intel Z77 Chipset System Configuration:
  • CPU: Core i5-3550 3.3Ghz
  • GPU: XFX AMD Radeon R9 280x R9-280X-TDFD
  • RAM: 4GBx4

Component Status:

  • Shutdown Tick.png
  • Restart Tick.png
  • CPU Turbo Mode Cross.png Recognized by system, but causes hard freezes within a few minutes of boot. Disabled in BIOS.
  • EIST Tick.png
  • Sleep Tick.png
  • USB 2.0 Tick.png
  • USB 3.0 Tick.png
  • Ethernet Tick.png : Realtek RTL 8111E
  • GPU: 2X Displayport, HDMI/DVI Tick.png , Quad Display
  • Audio: Onboard ALC887 Cross.png Onboard audio dead, can't test, USB external used instead
  • Make sure you try different USB ports for your install media if you get waiting for root device at boot--El Capitan has a proclivity for disabling some ports depending on your SMBIOS. I finally had luck by changing the header my front panel USB 2.0 ports were attached to.
  • All USB ports can be fixed later: Minimal modifications to Clover generated DSDT--renamed EHC1 and EHC2 to EH0 and EH02 respectively to fix USB 2.0 ports. Kext patching not needed with this DSDT method -- changing the name in DSDT causes the port restriction to not apply to them.
  • Enable ACPICPUPM patch to obviate need for NullCPUPowerManagement.kext
  • Only kexts needed were FakeSMC.kext and RealTekRTL8111.kext
  • Using MacPro6,1 SMBIOS

Installation - Clean install 10.11.0 -> upgraded via app store to 10.11.1

  • Clover OS X El Capitan
  • Bootloader: Clover using injected kexts in ESP.
  • Asus VBIOS downloaded from TechPowerUp [1], renamed to /EFI/CLOVER/ROMS/1002_6798.rom . Load VBIOS must be ON.

Installation - Upgrade using App Store process I had some initial luck with this, but I later reformatted and did a clean install to be completely sure I was rid of any remnants of having used TonyMacX86 crapware earlier. Make sure you have clover boot from the new install partition on its first restart.


P5Q SE Plus Intel P45 Chipset System Configuration:
  • CPU: Intel Core 2 Quad Q9550
  • GPU: ASUS EAH5770 CuCore 1GB
  • RAM: 2x1GB + 2x2GB DDR2-800

Component Status:

  • Shutdown Tick.png
  • Restart Tick.png
  • Sleep Cross.png - I think it's my MB fault, it's been always buggy even on windows
  • Ethernet Tick.png
  • GPU Tick.png
  • Audio: Tick.png

I think everything is working

“OS X 10.11 El Capitan Bootable USB for Intel PCs” - standard installation.

BIOS:

  • v2204
  • Configure SATA as AHCI
  • Disable Max CPUID value limit
  • Enable Repost Video on S3 resume

Installation:

  • Install Clover to HDD, standard installation. Update to 10.11.1 from Apple Store successfully
  • Ethernet: Realtek RTL8111 Binary 1.2.2 Final
  • Audio: Voodoo HDA 2.8.7 (remove AppleHDA.kext)
  • PS2 Keyboard: RehabMan Voodoo PS2 2015-11-07
  • ATA: ApplePCIIDE.kext.zip modified by MacGTO: /topic/280575-jmicronata/
  • Add FakeSMC and you’re done. Make sure you change the default audio device on system preferences.

Note: For some reason I dunno yet, when I enter Updates tab on App Store, my mouse stops working. I didn’t notice it in the beginning because I always have 2 mice connected and the 2nd keeps working. Both are usb mice. I tried USB legacy on and off.
