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 10.5.4 builds only.

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

  • Installation Instructions:
    1. Boot with "BOOT 123" CD, After loading press "F8" then "ESC"
    2. Replace disk with Retail DVD and press "Enter" twice.....long boot time...be patient!
    3. Open Disk Utilities and setup your install disk as "GUID Partition Table"
    4. Selece printer driver in the install options and continue install...
    5. You will get an error when the install completes...Ignore it and reboot.
    6. Boot with "BOOT 123" CD, After loading press "F8" then "ESC"
    7. Enter the number "80" if OSX installed on the first drive, or enter "81" if installed on the second drive and "Enter". This is the order your motherboard boots your hard disks.
    8. You will see the initial video for OSX
    9. Run the 10.5.6 Combo Update...DO NOT REBOOT...JUST MINIMIZE
    10. Run the "DSDT Patcher GUI"...Select "MAC OS X", Select your boot drive, click "Run DSDT Patcher"
    11. Run the "Universal OSx86 Installer" and choose the following
      1. Choose the hard drive to apply to
      2. Set the boot time....only if you care to have the bootloader count down
      3. Check "Apply Kext Package"
      4. Set Native Boot Resolution (mine is 1920x1200)
      5. Check "Install PC_EFI_V9 Option...VERY IMPORTANT
      6. Check "Apply Ethernet EFI String"
      7. Check "Apply EFI String for Video Card" (Select Your Model)
      8. Press "Install"
    12. Install "P5K-SE_10.5.6.pkg"
    13. Install "Taruga_AD1988b_rev3_Installer" Sound
    14. Install "87_Mac10.4_v1309" Wireless. Note that this kext has been reported to make the system unstable.
    15. Reboot...W/Out "BOOT 123"
    16. Run the "Universal OSx86 Installer" again and this time only choose the following
      1. Check "Apply Ethernet EFI String"
      2. Check "Apply EFI String for Video Card" (Select Your Model)
      3. Check "Install Custom Kexts from HD" (Browse to kexts and select)
      4. Press "Install"
      5. Reboot
    17. Open "OSx86Tools" and click "Enable/Disable Quartz GL" to verify if enabled...if not, enable.
    18. Go to "System Preferences, Sound, Output and select "Line Out"
    19. Follow link above to fix orange drive icons if it bothers you. It's only cosmetic.
    20. Run Update and update everything
  • DONE

NOTE: Here is a zip archive of all the files you will need including my BIOS SETTINGS. You still have to download the combo update 10.5.6, Wireless driver, and purchase Leopard Retail 10.5.4.

PC_EFI_V9 and Vanilla Kernel Fully 100% Functional with Sleep,Shutdown,Restart,etc.,etc.
P5KPL-AM Northbridge: Intel G31

Southbridge: Intel ICH7

  • Install Method: iAtkos 4.1i
  • BIOS Version/Revision: Unknown (factory default, no updates)
  • Audio: VIA VT 1708B (patches: none, works out of the box)
  • LAN: Realtek RTL8102EL (patches: Realtek R1000, works)
  • SATA: default BIOS options, no patches.
  • IDE: disabled (SATA hard drive and DVD drive in my case)
  • Optical Drive: Optiarc SATA DVD-RW, no problems during install, no IDE DVD at all.
  • Shutdown, reboot and sleep all work out of the box.
  • Other details:

PS/2 Keyboard & Mouse, even during install. No patches. No USB ones needed.

Video board: first I installed NVKush, NVDarwin and NVInject and got NVIDIA 8500 GT 512NVRAM recognized but without QE/CI. Then removed /System/Library/Extensions/NVinject.mkext and /System/Library/Extensions.mkext (do this as root from bash), rebooted and it just worked. Haven't tried to get IGP working (Intel 3100), but it isn't detected by Windows too, anyway, because I put PEG/PCI instead of PEG/IGP in BIOS :P (I'll try and post results later). <edit> Ok, tried PEG/IGP and it doesn't work, it seems to be a motherboard/chipset hardware issue. However my NVIDIA external card has both DVI and VGA output. Using a DVI-to-VGA converter and using second VGA output to second monitor did work out of the box (in both Windows & Mac). </edit>

Multiboot: had Windows XP installed before installing iAtkos. iAtkos installed multiboot gestor, recognized Windows XP and both O.S. boot just right. I had to create a new partition on empty space with fdisk, and set type to 0xAF (not sure, type help and use HFS+ number which I think it is AF), then go to disk utility and format it but don't put spaces in the volume name (such as Mac OS X, My disk, Spaces between words, etc...) or NVKush and other patches will fail to install.

Patches selected for install: Bootloaders: Darwin EFI Bootloader & Chameleon Bootloader; Additional Patches: Software Update Enabler & OHR; Drivers: NVkush, NVinject (don't install if you have 8500gt and want QE/CI), EFI strings for NVIDIA, 8xxx, 8500 GT 512MB, Intel ICHX SATA, Other Intel SATA, Speedstep, Intel Speedstep new, NTFS-3G & Realtek R1000.

PC-EFI: unknown

Vanilla: unknown

All patches included with iAtkos 4.1i, didn't install additional patches.
