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 10.6.2 builds only.

ASRock P45XE Intel p45
  • Installation method: Leo Hazard 10.6.0-10.6.2
  • [[8]]
  • Boot with boot flags -v, cpus=1, busratio=20
  • Use update 10.6.2
  • Bootloader => Chameleon RC3 PCEFI 10.5
  • Use vanilla kernel
  • Graphic => Use whatever yours is, i used NVenabler for my BFG 8800 gts and it works great.
  • Audio => VooDooHDA
  • LAN => Works out the box
  • Patches => SMBIOSResolver , Sata Fix: Ahci sata fix , on CMOS reset pick the last one.
  • Once installed use kextutility to install JMicron36xATA.kext this is for the chipset just google to find the kext. It will stop the os freezing when you copy large files eg. from your ipod or copying a dvd.

  • Everything works perfect USB, Shutdown and Restart, system runs in 64 bit mode using both cpus cores
  • The only problem is the sleep function.
  • In the BIOS Use the AHCI performance settings( I think it on the first page. )
  • Use vanilla kernel
  • On first boot use boot flag -v -f
  • If you get "still waiting for root device " then just restart and it should boot
Yes
ASROCK ALIVE sata2-glan Via K8T890 CF
  • Processor= AMD Athlon 64 X2 4600+
  • Memory= 2gb ddr 3200 at 800mhz dual channel (osx shows it at 812mhz)
  • Disks = ide Apple-IBM 12gb, ide dvd-cdr
  • Insatallation method. iATKOS OSx86 Intel-AMD. SENSITIVE installation
  • managed installer boot with -v. more notes at bottom
  • Bootloader= Chameleon V2 rc4
  • Legacy Logo
  • Patches from disk ="/Extra Directory", FakeSMC, Remove "Disabler", RTC-RTC
  • Kernel =qoopz 10.3.0
  • EVO Reboot
  • Drivers = MOST IMPORTANT. sata-ide, sound (weak so almost not worth it) NO graphics or nv drivers installed. ABSOLUTELY no network from the disk... dont select anything else. or
  • "Still Waiting for Root Device"
  • Network= Dlink 10-100 pci. -works. not overly fast though
  • Network2 = on-board Realtek RTL8111B - Works. install Realtek RTL81xx-0_0_90.pkg very nice work from Lnx2Mac. thanks to him.
  • Sound = onboard ALC888 -works, not overly loud. seeking new kext or may wait til i try combo update to 10 6 8
  • Graphics = NV6200tc pcie - works (native from install w no extra enablers or injectors) pretty fair. some minor glitches but a patch should fix it.
  • USB-USB2 = All seems to be fine. no patches.
  • Shutdown-Restart = works fine
  • Power Management = Turn it off... untested but expect kernel panic on the desktop = S.E.O.D. (scrambled eggs of death)
  • My net card and video both loaded native. I do recommend highly, turn off onboard sound and network in the BIOS before installing. if you want to try after install, turn them back on one at a time. nic seems to lose its connect settings and smeggs. sound is weak but sound from 4 rear channels
  • Install Notes= installed with ide- ide config. will install with bios SATA set to ide or ahci. the largest issue is a wrong driver will hang you out to dry for another 1+hour installation, and no.. dont load a driver off your old 10 5 6 dvd. toasted and reinstall from scratch. For those who have the "Still Waiting for Root Device" issue. this is it. turn off and remove what you dont need and dont load ANYTHING from the dvd that wont match exactly and is known to work. ie... dont install any drivers if you dont have to. I took alot of notes and this is pretty much where I arrived after several installs and attempted installs. AMD-VIA is a can do, 10 5 6 worked better, but is hard to get software for.
  • At first reboot from installer TRY these bootflags
  • "-v -x GraphicsEnabler=No npci=0x2000 ahcdisk=1 debug=8
  • This probably isnt necessary, but arriving to the desktop in Safe is a nice way to finish the installer without any conflicts. then remove DVD and reboot, if it went well, you will see your desktop again in 2 minutes.
Chameleon V2 R4, qoopz 10.3.0 No most is working but not up to speed

GA-G41M-ES2L mATX Intel G41/ICH7
  • Install method: Snow Leopard 10.6.1-10.6.2 SSE2 SSE3 Intel AMD by Hazard. Need cpus=1 boot flag or installer fails with kernel panic. Chose only Mac_OS_X_10.6.1, Mac_OS_X_10.6.2, Chameleon RC3 PCEFI 10.5, NVEnabler and Rosetta options. Got "boot0: GPT; boot0: testing; boot0: testing; boot0: error" message if no bootloader was chosen. After installation, had to boot into single-user mode and rm -rf /system/library/extensions/appletymcedriver.kext, was causing kernel panic. Did not need cpus=1 boot flag when booting into OS X.

1. Had to patch dsdt.aml using DSDTSE to fix "CMOS Checksum Error" when computer was restarted; followed these instructions step-by-step: [30]

2. There's also an available DSDT patcher inside the System. Run this and Select the OS's that causes the CMOS checksum error. Select everything in the right column.

GA-8I945GZME-RH mATX Intel 945GZ Express chipset, Intel GMA950 graphics, Intel ICH7
  • Install method: SnowOSX 10.6 v3.6A DVD (built on Retail Snow Leopard 10.6 + Update 10.6.2 + Safari 4.04)
  • Boot loader: Chameleon 2 RC3 (r658), PC EFI 10.5
  • BIOS version: F6
  • Audio: Realtek ALC883 - needs VoodooHDA.kext added post-install (found in /Applications/ATools/_Drivers on your HDD after SnowOSX is installed)
  • LAN: Marvell 8001 Gigabit Ethernet, needs skge_0.2f_x6_i386 kext by RonnieD available from [31]

Can't Access Internet: you may find the LAN works but you can't access outside addresses (eg. browser can't find pages); this is a DNS issue - if you can ping 8.8.8.8 but can't ping google.com (or use your browser to go anywhere outside the local network), then it's DNS related. SOLUTION: upon startup (or whenever this occurs) go to console and type 'sudo killall mDNSResponder', then enter your password. This causes the DNS client service to restart. Within a couple of seconds, DNS should be working and all will be well, you'll be able to surf the net :)

  • Optical Drive: working, my Lite-On iHAS-120 DVD burner works fine
  • Shutdown/restart: works fine
  • Sleep: haven't tested, presumed working
  • Other kexts: you will need skge 0.2f from [32] and VoodooHDA, which is included with the SnowOSX 3.6A install, or you can get it from the net
  • Apple Software Update: All working so far with 10.6.4 (2010-june-24)
  • Guide: Install SnowOSX 3.6A, install skge 0.2f kext, install VoodooHDA kext, update to 10.6.4 :)

Hardware in my system:

  • Intel Core2 Duo 6400 2.13GHz
  • Seagate Barracuda 7200.12 HDD, 500GB, 16MB cache
  • Lite-On iHAS-120 DVD Burner
  • 4GB (2x2GB) Kingston DDR2 800MHz RAM
Sound and LAN need extra kexts to work (see aforementioned); otherwise all working with SnowOSX 3.6A install (ie. vanilla 10.6.2)

When booting, the system will complain of a CMOS checksum error - pressing F1 solves this. I know there are solutions to this but I haven't yet tested any.

No, but can be easily made to work 100% by adding extra kexts

  • Sound: Realtek ALC889A: Working with LegacyHDA kext
  • LAN: Works out-of-the-box
  • Chipset ICH-10R, Shutdown+Restart - working out-of-the-box
  • Sleep: Needs tweaks.
  • No need to use smbios if using cartri's modified BIOS (also it runs smoother than Gigabyte's and don't beeps :)
Yes No. Need LegacyHDA.kext or DSDT patching for audio (I use LegacyHDA). Need NVEnabler.kext with some bootloaders (latest Chameleon RC5 by Rekursor needn't it). With Cartri's BIOS runs smoothly without writing DSDT.aml and smbios.plist (but STILL NEEDS fakesmc.kext). Basically you need only LegacyHDA.kext, NVEnabler.kext and fakesmc.kext. Sleep works OOB for some users of Cartri's BIOS, but I got no luck.

GA-EP45-UD3L ATX Intel P45 / ICH10
  • MB rev. 1.1, Bios F7; BIOS F9 is out and works.
  • Vanilla Mac OS X 10.6.0 retail DVD, booted using a boot CD with Chameleon2 RC3's cdboot without having any other OS-X installation.
  • I initially followed this guide and used the updated files from this post. Afterward I changed to AsereBLN Booter 1.1.7 (based on Chameleon RC4 / PCEFI10.5), newer kexts and made a number of DSDT.aml modifications. Combo update to Mac OS X v10.6.2 without problems. Everything works in 32 and 64 bit.
  • Audio: Realtek ALC888 works with LegacyHDA.kext and DSDT fix. Do not update to 10.6.3, sound will stop, the rest is ok, with blackosx' note on 10.6.3 kexts. Made 10.6.3 work 100% with new audio kext in /System/Library/Extensions
  • LAN: Realtek 8111C (works OOB)
  • SATA: works with AHCI in Bios. (IDE: not tested)
  • GFX: GeForce 9800 GT 1GB (works with GraphicsEnabler and a disabler.kext which disables only the AppleUpstreamUserClient.kext responsible for mouse lag)
  • Optical Drive: Samsung SH-S223B DVD-RW (works OOB)
  • DSDT fixes for RTC, USB, sound, speedstep, shutdown, reboot and sleep
  • Only two kexts needed: LegacyHDA.kext, FakeSMC.kext (v.2.5)
  • files in 'Extra' folder
yes yes
GA EP45-UD3r ATX Intel / ICH10
  • I install from another harddrive running OSX
  • If install retail version and upgrade from Apple you will do a lot more patching. It works but too much work.
  • The easiest method was Using SnowOSX_Universal_10.6(432)GM-v3.5 to install 10.6 with all options selected.
  • Then i used Snow_Leopard 10.6.2 by Hazard. I installed:
  • Chameleon RC3 10.5
  • NVEnabler (for my 9600gt)
  • ElliotForceLegacyRTC (keeps cmos from resetting)
  • ALC889a
  • ---You don't have to have your dsdt patched when you select those options---
  • After Installation completes you need to delete dsmos.kext
  • If you get a kernel panic use -v and boot again, sometimes works!

If you want update from apple. Update then restart

  • boot into another OSX to remove some files after update completes
  • delete dsmos.kext and get sleepenabler.kext for 10.6.2 (old kext will cause KP)
  • After new sleepenabler, my sound died. Install ALC889a_sl_10
  • If you get a KP from AppleHDA.kext, Then delete it!
  • All should be good depending on other minor hardware you use.

GA-K8NF-9 ATX nForce 4 (?)
  • BIOS Version: F11
  • Graphics: Sapphire Radeon HD 4350 (no QE/CI but there are guides)
  • Package with Information: [43]
  • Install method: Snow Leopard 10.6.2 DVD from Hazard (not the "10.6.1-10.6.2" !!)
  • Boot from DVD or copy the contents of the iso image to an USB drive and boot it (much faster!)
  • Check all options as shown in the attached images and install (I've installed onto a SATA HDD - don't know if an IDE one would work too)

Then there was a problem: After install on first boot, Mac would start the install wizard where you could type your name etc. But there was only the gray background and the cursor. I solved it by booting the hard drive in another AMD computer and made the install-wizard process there. Then it boots correctly. Known bugs:

  • Some graphic errors (may depend on the graphics card)
  • Every sound output causes the Finder to restart itself (that might be the reason why the installer hasn't worked - because it wanted to play a sound and caused a Finder reset)

K9A2 Platinum AMD 790FX Chipset (SB600) Installation method:
  • Started with 10.5.7 > 10.6.0 [49] >10.6.2 Hazard
  • Installed 10.6.2 by Hazard on a separate drive.

Issues:

1. Some extensions did not install during setup. Reinstall manually [50]

2. Error in terminal when using sudo command: sudo: /etc/sudoers is owned by gid 80, should be 0

  • This is a symptom of Admin account missing / Only standard user account's available:
    • Boot into single user mode
    • Type (after typing the commands to check disk and mount.):

rm /var/db/.AppleSetupDone

  • Reboot - Now your system will startup at the Setup Assistant Screen so you can establish an admin account.

Next:

  • Repair permissions using Disk Utility. While repairing you might..

Get this error while attempting to repair permissions: Error message: No installer package can be found for this disk

  • Best solution is to just update to 10.6.3 (trust me, it's too much trouble to solve). Once upgraded, this problem disappears.
No. Works with Blacknight 10.2 Kernel and Modbin. I used Modbin in the end. Use these selections in Hazard's install:
  • Chameleon RC3, Bootx86, Graphics Enabler, GUI
  • AMD_Patch
  • ATIATA
  • Realtek_R1000
  • ElliotForceLegacyRTC, IOATAFamily_SATA_FIX
  • ABOUT_This_Mac Fix, Bonjour64, DSDT_Patcher_GUI, EVOREBoot
  • Orange_IconFix, IOPCIFamilyFix, UUID, SwitchResX, VoodooHDA_PrefPAnt

  • EK/AU versions have the Atheros chipset, US versions Broadcom. This is for the Broadcom. It won't say on card so probe if unsure.
  • Works great with patch to plist file.
  • Got it up and running in 10.6.0. Every update you will have to repatch. how to patch the file - edit the contents of info.plist in AppleAirPortBrcm4311.kext by adding <string>pci14e4,4329</string> between strings ending 4328 & 432b
  • This can be accomplished rather quickly through terminal, copy and paste

sudo /Applications/TextEdit.app/Contents/MacOS/TextEdit /System/Library/Extensions/IO80211Family.kext/ Contents/PlugIns/ AppleAirPortBrcm4311.kext/Contents/Info.plist

  • add the edit and save. run sudo touch /System/Library/Extensions in terminal, restart, go to system preferences/network and you will see your new AirPort card populate in the list of network connections.
