HCL 10.6.3/Desktops

From OSx86
Jump to: navigation, search
Mac OS X 10.6.3
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 10.6.3 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 10.6.3 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.

You must modify the boot disk for the install to complete successfully. For me the installation hung with about 8 minutes remaining. To prevent the installation from hanging, I modified the file "/System/Installation/Packages/scripts_b.pkg/Contents/Resources/postflight" on the boot disk, removing the lines containing "update_dyld_shared_cache_org".
