HCL 10.8.1/Portables

From OSx86
Jump to: navigation, search
OS X 10.8.1
Hardware Compatibility

This is a hardware compatibility list for portable computers. We want to keep it as accurate as possible, but please, do not entirely rely on this list when buying a portable computer. Don't forget to add how you got OSx86 running on your portable x86 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 10.8.1 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 10.8.1 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.

  • Notes:
    • Custom DSDT and kexts obtained from this thread.
    • Shutdown, Restart and Sleep works (DSDT edits).
    • AHCI (for SATA) and Always On (for fan) were present by default in BIOS.
    • For internet, I use a USB broadband modem (ZTE) which works without a glitch.

[edit] U400

  • Install Method: 10.8.0 DVD. Updated to 10.8.1 without Problem
    • my particular model comments shown indented after original
    • USB method and AppStore ML 10.8. Updated to 10.8.1 and then to 10.8.2 without problem (both OTA, not combo updates)
  • Bootloader: Chameleon (not working, boot from USB only)
    • Chameleon working with following method: Completely re-formatted hdd to MBR, 4 primary partitions (2x Win7, 1x Linux Mint 13, 1x OS X hpf+). Used backup one-key DVD's to restore Win7, including Win7's bootloader. Installed Linux Mint 13 which installed grub2 in place of Win7 bootloader, Win7 appears in grub OS list and boots. Format last partition to hpf+, used Super-Duper backup to restore OS X to this partition - Chameleon/Chimera does not install. Boot to Linux and added grub entry to chainload Chameleon, got boot0 error, searched web and using terminal this time, copied (dd if= of=) boot1h to OS X partition, now boots grub2 -> Chimera 1.11 -> OSX. Think the problem is in the new hdd block sizes. I did not necessarily want to triple-boot, but found that if you disable wifi in BIOS, it will disable the card in Linux (wi-fi and bluetooth) and OSX (bluetooth only, since wifi not working anyway), and there is no way to turn it back on without Win7.

Bluetooth seems to take up to a minute to initialize (BT icon goes from "broken" symbol to full BT symbol during desktop start-up). Disabled both those (in prefpane-> bluetooth->advanced and uncheck both options), seems to be more stable now.
