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 10.4.6 builds only.

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

Audio: works with path AppleAzalia.kext, (see link for details) Conroe 6400 correctly shown in System Profiler as well as an additional Firewire card with VIA chipset.] NO-need azalia for audio+BorisB for gigabit LAN, Jas10.4.6/10.4.7 945G + ICH7
775i65GV ASROCK Installed using pre-patched Jas 10.4.6 DVD

Everything works great (including SATA) except for audio, but m-audio mobilepre USB device works as an external sound card for me

User 2: Everything Worked; Including Audio (System Profiler lists as PCM Audio) But Cannot Change Volume at all. Didn't test onboard video; Used Radeon 9600XT.

Yes, except audio 945GV
775XFire-eSATA2 ASROCK Installed using pre-patched Jas 10.4.6 DVD

USB, SATA, IDE Works Perfectly, No Sound & Network (I've tried nothing to make it works)
I don't know why but with Intel920 i can't use SSE3 Kernel but just SSE2, However i tried some benchmarks using an Intel D945GNTL with SSE3 enabled and i got no performance loss

I tried ATI X1600XT and GeForce 7600GT but i got strange graphics artifacts that does not appear using the same hardware on ASUS P5PL2 and Intel D945GNTL
NO 945PL
775i945GZ Asrock
  • Working: GMA950 CI and QE, ATA, USB, Audio ALC888 (2 ch. out with mod. azalia kext), LAN, standby, SATA, Firewire, Intel Celeron D336 2.8 GHz with SSE3 path
JaS 10.4.6 Install DVD Intel 945GZ
775Twins HDTV ASROCK no sound, no network.Celeron336 show 2.78GHz but in IntelD945GNT show 4GHz. CPU feature just show SSE and SSE2, no SSE3 but IntelD945 show SSE, SSE2 and SSE3. Ram not know speed NO, Prepatched Jas 10.4.6 DVD ATI xpress200
775i65PE ASROCK Using Intel Pentium 4 511 2.8GHz, everything works like a charm, ATA, LAN, sound, USB, restart function, shutdown function. Also using Sony DVD writter and Sony DVDROM without problems. The USB Legacy also works for USB keyboard & mouse. Since this board doesn't have graphics onboard, I use HIS ATI Radeon 9550 with patched ATIRadeon9700.kext and Callisto driver, having QE/CI with cube/ripple effects. Also replace the IOPCIFamily.kext with 10.4.5 version. The graphics card also works with framebuffer to change the resolution and enter display sleep. System sleep doesn't work, for the monitor does sleeps but the casing's fans keep rotating. Haven't try with the SATA. Yes, using JaS 10.4.6 PPF1 DVD Intel 865
775Dual-VSTA ASROCK Had to disable CPU flags on the 1.9 bios before the install DVD would even install. Get the network going by using VIA Rhine driver at pinxue.net, just follow given instructions. For the ALC888, use the method given for ALC882 but with the following numbers: AppleAzaliaAudio file is 0x10ec0888, and AppleAzaliaConroller is 0x32881106 (at least for me anyway). Now, everything works perfectly, no exceptions. No, JaS 10.4.6 VIA PT880 Pro/Ultra
P4V88 ASROCK Sata works with VIAATA.kext, LAN works with another kext. ATA, Audio (only left channel).In the "Mac info" recognize USB controllers, but i haven't tried if they works. NO, HOTiSO 10.4.6 DVD then had to add some kext VIA PT880
P4Dual-915gl ASROCK All works. However you need to ensure MAXCPUID is turned off in the bios, as well as HYPERTHREADING. I do not know why, buy the former throws kernel panics, and the latter throws divide-by-zero (i386_div) errors. I used JaS 10.4.6. Need to install 10.4.5 GMA915/900 graphics drivers to work well. Also you need to turn on PS2 in /etc/rc. Everything working here. Installed without a hitch. On board graphics with CoreImage/Quartz Extreme, SATA, and networking all working here! Sound out (not tried sound in) works fine. Restart also works fine. I used PS2 keyboard to install but and then USB keyboard/mouse worked fine with usb legacy support activated in bios. NO, Prepatched Jas 10.4.6 DVD then had to patch Video and change BIOS settings Intel 915GL
P4Dual-915gl ASROCK Works well. Install went flawlessly. The on board graphics work well with QE/CI working as is sound (only tried out), onboard networking and restart with usb legacy support activated in BIOS. Have a ATA hard drive installed in this one so I have not tried the SATA. May need ps2 keyboard to install. Didn't do anything else and it works great! Myzar 10.4.4/10.4.5 DVD and then Myzar 10.4.6 update v3 Intel 915GL
K8Upgrade VM800 ASROCK Worked just fine for the most part with a Sempron64 in the Socket 754 slot. Unsure if sound works, and the onboard NIC doesnt work at all, SATA is hit and miss so maybe use PATA. Video is fine though. NO, Prepatched Jas 10.4.6 DVD VIA K8M800
K8Upgrade-760GX ASROCK Works, but onboard video limited to 1024x768 @ 60Hz. Audio not working. Ethernet not working. USB Working. PS2 Working. CPU: Sempron 3100+ Jas 10.4.6 DVD SiS 760GX
939Dual-SATA2 ASROCK Everything working except Sound and Ethernet. Only Primary ATA channel working at real slow speed.Sata and Sata2 working with modified kext (device id). No. ULI M1695/ULI M1567
939A8X-M ASROCK No Sound and Ethernet. Have not tried SATA. (Chess application slow, Rosetta?) No, Myzar 10.4.6 DVD ULI M1695/ULI M1567
939 SLI32-eSATA2 ASROCK Fully operative except integrated Gigabit NIC and HD Audio (there must be a workaround for Azalia, still haven't tried). To make SATA work, edit AppleVIAATA.kext/Contents/Info.plist and use this id 0x528810B9 in the VIA SATA controller section and in the AppleAHCIPort.kext/Contents/Info.plist in the ICH7MAHCI section. Yes, but no NIC ULi M1697 + M1695
p4vm800 (478) ASROCK All works - Celeron D 310, PATA HDD Maxtor 40gb, PATA DVD Pioner109, Sound - 2 channels with patch for AppleAC97AudioVia.kext, intergraded video s3unichrome as VESA3.0 (no QE,CI) in 1280x1024 after correct boot plist, network with viarhine driver, USB in high speed mode, usb latency turn on No, Maxxuss 10.4.6 and device patches VIA vm800

N4L-VM DH Asus All hardware works (USB, SATA, IDE, VGA, though sound not tested yet. Onboard 950 supports QE. Remember to disable the second core on processor when installing and specify cpus=1. Second core works perfectly once installed. NO, Jas 10.4.6 DVD Intel 945GM + ICH7-M DH
P4C800-E Deluxe Asus Installation worked fine, no hitches. LAN worked from the get-go. The audio also worked for 2 channels, but it was flipped (the back speakers were putting out the stereo sound). I went into the Midi Audio tool and set it to 4-channels. I corrected the speakers in the Speaker set up. After that, I set the sample rate to 48000. This seemed to enable the extra channels, even though the levels for the channels were grayed out. I'm still working on different settings, but so far, I've gotten 4 channels to work, even if you can't level them properly. Used Jas 10.4.5/10.4.6 update
P5LD2-VM Asus All works great apart from the ITE IDE port. Sound works great but only 2ch out. GMA950 (64MB max) gfx work wonderfully. Go to http://forum.osx86project.org/index.php?showtopic=18642 to find instructions to get audio working. NO, Jas 10.4.6 DVD Intel 945G
P5WD2-E Premium Asus Marvell RAID does not work at all. Must be disabled in BIOS! Intel ICH7R is kind of working. Visit IDE Configuration in BIOS: Don't choose AHCI SATA.

P5S800-VM Asus Ethernet, SATA not tested. Audio doesn't work. Everything else OK. Yes, Using JAS 10.4.6. Others not tested SIS 661FX
K8V Asus The AppleVIAATA.kext driver responsible for the VT8237 host controller doesn't initialize the disc timings at all for SATA discs. Therefore SATA drives can be used reliable only, if the BIOS is configured to non-PnP host operating system and a PCI latency timer of 64. Severe data corruption will occur otherwise. The VT8237 host controller simply doesn't support SATA II disc connection speed auto-negotiation. The drives have to be jumpered to SATA I only before use. No K8T800
K8V SE Deluxe Asus See K8V. Additionally, USB does not work. Kernel detects it, but no go No K8T800

Ethernet doesn't work (looks like it should with forcedeth, as it does with the current Linux forcedeth driver, but even given correct device id, it fails to move packets); Graphics don't work with the onboard geForce 6100 (except in VESA modes only); SATA drives are visible as ATA drives with AppleNForceATA.kext, not tested how well they work. Otherwise fine! Can install and boot onto IDE and network with firewire. No nForce 430 / MCP61
NF325-A7 Biostar Running with a socket 754 3400+. Audio works if you keep the jumpers on the audio connector thing-a-ma-bob, and don't hook up any front audio connections. Integrated network works with Forcedeth driver. SATA works with AppleViaATA.kext, but still haven't been able to install or boot from sata yet No Nforce3 250

[edit] Sound Cards

Please specify the number and type of audio in and out channels. "Yes" is not a complete answer! Incomplete information about the supported channels is crippling home media center users. Unless the data is entered here, it is nearly impossible to locate short of testing every piece of equipment personally.
Use /Applications/Audio MIDI Setup.app to explore the capabilities of your sound hardware. Anybody can test 5.1/7.1 analog out - even without "surround sound" gear. Just plug standard stereo speakers/headphones into the other channels one at a time and use Audio MIDI Setup to generate test sounds to verify they're working - it only takes a few moments.

[edit] Graphics Cards

Please specify if your card is AGP, PCI or PCI-E.
Also, please try to differentiate chip and board manufacturer (i.e. "ATI / Sapphire" or "NVidia / Gainward").
Note: For NVidia users, visit http://macvidia.starchaser.org/ for updated drivers. For NVIDIA CARDS PLEASE SPECIFY IF THE CARD DOES QE/CI. Saying the macvidia drivers work but not specifying QE or CI is a bit misleading
Note: For ATI users, visit http://omni.starchaser.org/ for experimental drivers.
Note: As of right now, all ATI cards with working kexts have severe slowdown issues with nForce3 chipsets. There is no fix for this, save getting editting out your card from the kext or using Quartz Debug to shut off Quartz Extreme.
UPDATE: ATI Radeon 9600 working on nforce3 with QE and CI with no slowdown, only some little tearing that could be fixed, instructions here. This might work with other cards.

Hardware Name, [Bus] [(VRAM)] Chip-Manufacturer / [Board-Manufacturer] Notes QE / CI Resolution Full Work / No Patch
PowerColor X1600PRO 256MB PowerColor / ATI works with Borisbadenov method Driver @ http://www.installers.dl.am/ YES ANY Only DVI to VGA on one Monitor, anything else works fully
X1600Pro IceQ PCIe 256MB HIS Excalibur / ATI works with Borisbadenov method Driver @ http://www.installers.dl.am/ YES ANY with DVI support Yes / Borisbadenov Patch 3.2 for 10.4.6
ATI Radeon X600 256mb ATI 10.4.6 Goatse image works 1024x768 only out of box. Can get full resolution/refresh rate control panel with Callisto drivers, but must do QE/CI hack/trick to get QE/CI working again after callisto installation. World of Warcraft works perfectly after callisto installation / QE/CI patch/hack. See solutions in insanelymac forum to deal with mouse tearing. YES 1024x768 60hz QE/CI only out of box. Callisto driver needed for resolution/refresh rate control plus QE/CI hack needed to re-enable after callisto driver install. Only
PowerColor X1600XT256MB PowerColor / ATI This card works perfect, all I did was edit the ATINDRV.kext and replaced
"<string>ATY,Wormy</string> to this <string>display</string>"
<string>IONDRVDevice</string> to this <string>IOPCIDevice</string>
. After these changes I could choose any resolution in DISPLAY Preference, and I have full support for QE and CI
YES ANY just the one mentioned before
PowerColor X1600XT 256MB dual-DVI-D PCIe PowerColor / ATI Works with Borisbadenovmethod Driver @ http://www.installers.dl.am/ yielding QE/CI, full resolution support, refresh-rate selection, no mouse tearing, and screen rotation. Full-screen video at 1920x1200 is smooth, full 32-bit color appears to be present - this has been an issue on other cards. However, the card will only send output on the primary DVI-D port; if D-SUB is attempted in conjunction with DVI-D, output is only sent on D-SUB. Thus no dual-monitor support is possible with (at least) dual DVI or mixed DVI/D-SUB. I have not attempted dual D-SUB. YES ANY NO
MSI RX1600 TD256E 256mb ATI / PCI-E works with Borisbadenovmethod Driver @ http://www.installers.dl.am/
Full QE/Ci, able to change resolutions, refresh rates, no mouse tearing.
Yes Any Patch and 100%

Radeon X300SE ATI Supports QE/CI in any resolutions, with Callisto 008 and Koverg driver/patches, leaves mouse trails that can "patchsolve" with MouseLocator (Device ID = 5b60). However, under DVI-D, the full-screen video is very choppy with this card at high-resolution; Aperture is often sluggish when it animates (switching picks in a stack, etc.); the card *does not* support full 32-bit color, although it claims to under Display Preferences. Not a good choice if you're looking to purchase a new card for your system. Yes Any No

Radeon 9800Pro AGP ATI Working. Use Callisto (omni.starchaser.org) to enable Display options. QE/CI Working. Remember to edit AtiRadeon9700Ga.plugin when using Callisto to enable QE/CI. Moderate mouse tearing can be decreased with MouseLocator Yes 1280x1024 Needs Callsito to enable display adjustments in control panel. Has moderate mouse tearing
Radeon 9800 Pro AGP 128MB VRAM ATI Working on SSE2 (with SSE2 patches, DVD already patched). Didn't do anything special but limited to 1024x768x32. QE/CI Working. Also there is mouse tearing. Tried Callisto8+Koverg patch, which killed my installation. So go get higher resolution, I simply edited (see below) the com.apple.boot.plist file to add 1280x1024x32, which works beautifully!

Add to library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/com.apple.boot.plist (sudo library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/com.apple.boot.plist )
