HCL 10.5.2/Desktops

From OSx86
Jump to: navigation, search
Mac OS X 10.5.2
Hardware Compatibility

This is a hardware compatibility list ONLY for OEM desktop computers. We want to keep it as accurate as possible, but please, do not entirely rely on this list when buying a desktop. Don't forget to add how you got OSx86 running on your x86 desktop computer, and to use proper English. Please see the discussion page for proper instructions on how to input your system specs. Also, please contribute to the HCL 10.5.2 page, which should list a more granular view of compatibility. If your computer isn't listed, you should try it if you have a SSE2 or higher processor. Use vanilla kernel if it is supported.

  • 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 10.5.2 builds only.

Please list your computers in alphabetical order by manufacturer (Asus, Acer, Dell, HP, etc)

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

Note: Please add whether your device supports QE, Quartz Extreme, graphics. Try playing a movie with Quicktime Player.

Only problems the started (first only run with Kalyway installer ) and the USB ports, but they have solution. For solution of started, open the terminal and select the disk where you installed Leopard (search in the forum of InsanelyMac). For solution of the USB ports, you need download USB Fix and Install (search in the forum). I recomend buy a new graphic card (find avaliable in this page). After, all works 99%.

  • LAN Intel 100/VE working by copying the following : AppleIntel8255x.kext
  • Onboard Video: intel GMA950 works with minimal screen tearing in Itunes and firefox(use Camino to solve screen tearing issue): select only this in the options as selecting X3100 causes the graphic card to not get recognized properly.
  • Audio: Sigmatel 9221 A1 works using Sigmatel9200.zip ; Had to try a few times before I finally got it to work. use the same instructions used for the ethernet by changing the kext name from AppleIntel8255.kext to AppleHDA.kext in the terminal command. Also have a creative usb soundcard that shows up as usbAudio and works flawlwssly.
  • IDE, SATA and USB work perfectly out of box.
  • NOTE: sleep/Wake doesn't work correctly so it's better to disable sleep and only let the monitor turn off.


[edit] Dimension 8400

  • Install method: Kalyway 10.5.2 Intel
  • Dell BIOS: A09
  • CPU: Intel Pentium4 2.8 Ghz
  • Broadcom 57xx doesn't work (change to Intel PCI Pro/100)

Broadcom 57xx works if you first determine MAC address in Windows using ipconfig /all (write down the MAC address of your built-in Broadcom network) Then, in OS 10, open Terminal and change wrong MAC address ( 00:00:00:00 ) to correct one as follows:

% sudo ifconfig en0 ether aa:bb:cc:dd:ee:ff

where en0 is the network interface (numbered from en0, en1, en2 ...) and aa:bb:cc:dd:ee:ff is the desired MAC address in hex notation. ( Above from: http://www.macosxhints.com/article.php?story=20031102075234315 ) Check that MAC address has changed as follows: System Preferences, Network, Advanced, Ethernet (MAC address should be changed.) Then, click on the TCP/IP tab and click on Renew DHCP Lease, click on OK then Apply. Status should indicate Connected and useable IP Address. Try connecting with web browser which should work if steps followed correctly.

[edit] Precision 690 Workstation

  • Install method: retail with EFI v8(GUID Partition), parallel install, with dsmos.kext added and appleIntelCPUManagement.kext deleted, also worked with Leo4All
  • Cleanest install possible: vanilla + EFI v8 + dsmos.kext - appleIntelCPUManagement.kext. Add AppleHDAPatcher for audio, and nvinject or natit for add-in video. Didn't try onboard video.
  • EFI v8 with vanilla 9.2.2 kernel
  • CPU Xeon 5150 2.66ghz
  • Chipset: Intel 5000X
  • BIOS: A07
  • RAM: 2GB FB-DIMMs

  • Video: nVidia 7800GT
  • Sleep works, restart works, shutdown doesn't(does if you trigger case switch after shutdown)
  • Broadcom network doesn't work
  • Easiest way to install was to an external drive from a mac. If you don't have one, I would hook up a 2nd drive, do a Leo4All install to the secondary drive, then do a parallel install using EFI and retail to the primary drive. 10.5.2 update caused a kernel panic during install, but I think it was my NIC. Installed it from parallel OS and it works fine after re-removing AppleIntelCPUManagement.kext. Currently fully patched, all updates.


[edit] Precision T5400 Workstation

  • Install method: Kalyway 10.5.2 with default options, EFI v8, etc. System even detected SAS 6 drives connected (left Vista on Dell's SAS drive; installed OS X on a new SATA internal drive I installed).
  • After installation, run Kalyway 10.5.3 update and used Vanilla ROM
  • CPU Dual Xeon Quad Core 3.17 Ghz
  • Chipset: Intel X5460
  • BIOS: A03
  • RAM: 8GB FB-DIMMs (4 2 GB ECC PC2-5300)

  • Video: nVidia 8800 640MB (NvInject)
  • Sleep, restart, shutdown all work
  • Came with internal network card and secondary PCI network card which does work with Kalyway default install (NetXtreme Gigabit)
  • Bought PC from Dell as a Refurb and it came with the two network cards, internal speaker, Firewire card (works in Leopard). I swapped out the stock video card only because I had a better one sitting in a drawer. Leave the BIOS settings on their defaults (don't turn on things like Virtualization). Change the boot order, disable extraneous ports if you want (like parallel, serial, etc.) but leave the performance settings alone. You can always tweak them after the install. Works like a charm with very little effort put into it. This is my 6th OS x86 install and its never been this easy.

[edit] T3302

  • Install Method: Leopard 10.5.2 AMD EFI Rev.2, ToH 9.2 kernel
    1. At DVD prompt: vanilla -v
    2. PS2 keyboard and mouse work for install
  • Chipset: VIA K8M800
  • Processor: AMD Sempron 3300+ 2 GHz (supports SSE2 and SSE3)
  • Video: VIA/S3 UniChrome Pro (no QE or OpenGL), this machine has AGP only and no PCI-E, so I upgraded to GeForce FX 5200 128MB which is fully supported
  • Audio: AC '97 works OOB
  • LAN: Works OOB
  • WiFi: I added a USB WiFi adapter


[edit] T3646

Hardware specs:

  • AMD Sempron LE-1250 CPU, 2.2GHz, SSE2/SSE3 support
  • WinFast motherboard (unknown model)
  • nVidia MCP61S (nForce 405 / GeForce 6100) motherboard chipset
  • 160GB SATA hard disk
  • PATA DVD+/-RW drive
  • 1GB RAM
  • $300 computer (in May 2008) without monitor

Pre-installation

  • Added 320GB PATA hard disk with Linux (transferred from older computer)
  • Configured BIOS to boot PATA hard disk as main disk
  • Configured BIOS to disable USB mouse and keyboard
  • Repartitioned 320GB hard disk to devote 117GB to MacOS in a primary partition (a logical partition did not work!); had to create partition of type 0xAF in Linux fdisk for MacOS
  • Prepared GRUB in Linux to boot MacOS partition, as well as Linux and Windows Vista (pre-installed on SATA disk)

Install method:

  • Used iPC OSx86 beta with PPF2 applied. Did an earlier install with Leo4All v2 (v3 always hung during boot; Kalyway 10.5.2 got further, but hung during install).
    • Sometimes Leo4All v2 hangs during boot; pressing Enter key at boot prompt (rather than letting it time out) seems to get around the problem, or using -x boot option fixes the problem
    • PS/2 keyboard and mouse require disabling USB keyboard and mouse in BIOS.
  • Selected install options (from memory):
    • Removed extra language options
    • Voodoo kernel
    • nVidia motherboard/SATA/PATA chipset driver
    • No video driver
    • No Ethernet driver
    • ALC662 audio driver
    • Used 10.5.5 seatbelt.kext file (failure to do so results in crashes)
    • Did NOT patch the PCI detection code (I don't recall the option name); using that patch results in crashes upon reboot
  • After installation, patched or added drivers:
    • Added nForceLAN Ethernet driver. Other Ethernet drivers, such as forcedeth, either don't work or work poorly. (iPC OSx86 PPF3 is supposed to include this driver.)
    • Played with nVidia 6100 drivers. Most either did nothing or prevented the system from presenting a login screen. With no drivers, the video display "tore" when moving windows, but some drivers at least prevented that. Unfortunately, I don't recall precisely what I did to get it working.
    • Edited /Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/com.apple.Boot.plist to include the lines <key>Graphics Mode</key> and <string>1280x1024x32</string>. This sets the screen resolution for my display.

Resulting system works reasonably well:

  • Ethernet works fine
  • Disk access seems reasonably speedy; Xbench disk results 75.36. (Note this is on my PATA disk, not the stock SATA disk.)
  • Sound works for output (on both channels); input not yet tested
  • USB stick "disk" works
  • Video works and seems fast enough subjectively for desktop applications. Xbench video results: Quartz = 128.03, OpenGL = 39.34; User Interface = 100.40
  • I'm able to run both native x86 and PPC applications.

What doesn't work:

  • DVD playback fails because the DVD player doesn't like the display.
  • X doesn't work (perhaps another Quarts issue).

Overall a good Hackintosh, albeit requiring some work, and perhaps a video card update would improve video performance.

  • CPU Core 2 Quad Q6600 - 2.4 GHz (100% Recognize as 2.4 GHz Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600)
  • RAM 4gb PC6400 DDR2 (100% Working)
  • Video GeForce 8500GT 512mb (100% Working with NVInstaller V4.1 here http://rapidshare.com/files/100669894/NVInstallerV.41.pkg)
  • Audio Realtek ALC 888s (100% working out the box with LEO4All ALC888 Drivers selected before Install)
  • Microphone Recognize by system but seem not to work.
  • Lan Realtek 8111C (100% Working with RTGMac_v1.1.6, both Front and Back of the computer audio connection working)
  • 15-in-1 Card Reader 100% Working Out Of The Box (tested with a regular SanDisk flash card)

NOTES: Sometimes It doesnt shutdown completely, sometimes it does. Sometimes Sleep can put it in total coma so I need to reboot. All functions of the Aluminum Apple Keyboard are working. This system is verrrrrrrry cheap for a Core 2 Quad, lots of stuff in it. A Xbench test after Fresh Install and all components working 100% gave me a result of 154. I'm verry happy with this machine, it is made to be a good mac. The most complicated and Scary part was to Flash the Bios. Every other drivers (RTGMac 1.1.6 and NvInstaller V4.1) added after was pretty easy to do, no "repair disk permission" or "Show package" or "kext Editing" were needed, everything is automated. Converting this machine to a Mac was a piece of cake (but lots of research on the InsanelyMac Forum).
