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 10.8.2 builds only.

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

Z77 Extreme 4 Intel i5/3570k WORKING: LAN, Integrated video, Nvidia Video

NOT WORKING: USB 3 - still some weird issues like lockups or USB locking, audio - weird ports but working, sleep, and weird display artifacts from time to time. Installed using Chimera Once OS X 10.8.2 was running on Chimera side I copied the .plist files (smbios and org.chameleon...) The system would now go into OS X successfully, but not before then. Inserting a USB Thumb drive locks up OS X, so I insert it prior to booting. Fixed? Applied the Broadcom network patch using KextWizard Nvidia GTS 450 - Kept going to a black screen (no signal) once it would hit the login screen. Didn't appear to be an out of range issue with the resolution. I installed the Nvidia Fermi Open CL Patch. That still didn't fix the issue, so I rebooted -x -v -F and got in. Once I was in, I rebooted once again without any boot flags. Failed! Added entries to org.chameleon.Boot.plist: npci=0x2000, PCIRootUID=0 ALC898 Audio Fixed by Applying Realtek AC8XX Patch - kind of. Ports are off. I installed all of FakeSMC, including plugins, BUT it locked up at the spinning icon. To fix that, I had to download FakeSMC r616 from OSX86.net and copied over manually from terminal. I tried this to fix my artifacts that appeared on the screen. It did NOT work.

Patched Bios version 2.50, Broadcom: 3089-BCM57781.zip (IONetworkingFamily.kext), Nvidia Fermi Open CL Patch, Realtek AC8XX Patch Cross.png Tick.png

ASROCK Alive SATA2-GLAN VIA® K8T890 CF System Configuration

Hardware

  • CPU = AMD Athlon 64 X2 4600+
  • RAM = 1 Gig ddr2 800mhz
  • HDD 1 = ATA IDE IBM Deskstar 20 gig
  • HDD 2 = SATA Seagate 250 gig
  • Optical Drive = dvd-cdr
  • LAN = Onboard Realtek RTL81xx
  • Audio = Onboard ALC888
  • Graphics = Nvidia Geforce 6200 Turbo Cache
Installation Method
  • Niresh DVD iso
Component Status
  • Graphics = Working somewhat. glitches in icons ghosting on the desktop and flashy things
  • LAN = Using Lnx2Mac after install its perfect
  • Audio = No success as of yet
  • USB = Several issues such as connection loss requiring replugging
  • GENERAL OS = Locks up ALOT. only 1 gig of ram may be a source of this problem. the more the better. Have not yet gotten out of Safe mode. At best it freezes up at where i am thinking it loads Graphics. No flags have helped me past this, and it seems to require my cpu flags to get that far cpus=1 cores=2 busratio=12 is the portion i use.
  • Installation = Took 3 days to get near a complete install, and have yet to see the "installation successful" screen. at the best i have gotten to "install failed, could not restart from drive" or something close to that. more often installer freezes at "about a minute" But in both cases, i restart off the HDD and just try it. have been successful twice with the cant restart and once with a less than a minute freeze.
  • Install Bootflags = amd -v GraphicsEnabler=No npci=0x2000 ahcdisk=1 UseKernelCache=No
  • Get To OSx Bootflags = -v -x GraphicsEnabler=No debug=8 (and maybe the rest of the above here, have had mixed results)
  • Customizations = Less is more. in fact, experiment with removing items if you think you wont need them. The odds are if you add even one driver your Installer is going to freeze. It probably will anyways.
Summary

OSx Mountain Lion on AMD

  • In General, I would say if you have a good OSx Lion, or Snow Leopard, stay with it. The stability of this on AMD is far far from ideal. It requires too many resources and is more prone to total collapse. There are huge issues with the CPU timings from the AMD chip and OSx ML. The install disk I have does not have an option to run installer without the base system to go back to get more drivers. And many times i had to Boot into Snow Leopard to remove files and make edits on the ML driver and Am still not able to get out of safe mode. And as much as my system freezes up, Im not sure I want to. Go download the OSx ML desktop images and add them to your OSx SnowLeopard. It's not like Apple has broken any real new ground here for the resource cost. If you have my config, Try an install off a true Vanilla. I think you will have greater successs and no niresh customizations (or who knows what else). I appreciate his work in putting this together and being able to try it, but to be honest, it has been the most difficult OSx install I have ever experienced. It is locked up right now as i type because i though I could unmount a script he left for us. And his Lion version never saw the installer. Good luck to the rest of you hardcore AMD fans.

  • RAM: Transcend DDR3 1333MHz 4 GB
  • LAN: Realtek® 8111F
  • BIOS version: 0802
Installation method:

Using iAtkos ML2 from a flash drive: 1. Formatted the flash drive (8 GB) to Mac OS X Extended (Journaled) [used Master Boot Record] 2. Dragged the iAtkos ML2 DMG to Disk Utility, mounted it and restored it to the newly created partition of the flash drive. 3. Ran the Chameleon installer and installed it to the flash drive. 4. Set HDD as AHCI instead of IDE in Advanced Setup in the BIOS (UEFI) and enabled VT-x as well 6. Booted from the flash drive. 7. Formatted a partition as Mac OS X Extended (Journaled) in Disk Utility and selected the following customizations: - Bootloader - Bootloader options: Kernel Cache, Built-in Ethernet (Note: I disabled Graphics Enabler because it wouldn't go past the Apple loading screen. Feel free to experiment.) - Patches: FakeSMC, Disabler, EvoReboot, RTC Patch - Mac model: Mac Pro 5,1 - Drivers: - SATA/IDE: AHCI SATA, AHCI Internal, Non-AHCI SATA - Network (Note: Don't select Sound! We'll add that later!) 8. Started the system with -v and removed AppleTymcedriver.kext [How-To] (Case-sensitive! Use Tab to autocomplete when using!) 10. Download the driver VoodooHDA 0.2.72 only. 11. Run Kext Utility (It's in Applications/Utilities/Tools) and let it do its thing. 12. Reboot and you should have everything working.


If the sound is too low or the volume slider isn't working, click here for a guide to fix the common issues (can fix some kernel panics if you're having those!)
Note: You may have to go to System Preferences, Sound, Output and switch it to Line-Out (Green Rear) to hear sounds if you're not using digital-out.

H61M-E33/W8 Intel® H61(B3) System configuration:
  • CPU: Intel® Core™ i3-3225 Processor (3.30GHz, 3M Cache)
  • GPU: Intel HD 4000 (Integrated)
  • RAM: MicroCenter DDR3 1333MHz 4 GB
  • LAN: Realtek® 8111E
  • BIOS version: 18.2
Installation method: (Copied from entry for Asus P8H61-M LX3 PLUS R2.0 above, with minor changes to configuration)

Using iAtkos ML2 from a flash drive:
1. Formatted the flash drive (8 GB) to Mac OS X Extended (Journaled) [used Master Boot Record]
2. Dragged the iAtkos ML2 DMG to Disk Utility, mounted it and restored it to the newly created partition of the flash drive.
3. Ran the Chameleon installer and installed it to the flash drive.
4. Set HDD as AHCI instead of IDE in Advanced Setup in the BIOS (UEFI) and enabled VT-x as well
6. Booted from the flash drive.
7. Formatted a partition as Mac OS X Extended (Journaled) in Disk Utility and selected the following customizations:
- Bootloader
- Bootloader options: Kernel Cache, Built-in Ethernet (Note: I disabled Graphics Enabler because it wouldn't go past the Apple loading screen. Feel free to experiment.)
- Patches: FakeSMC, Disabler, EvoReboot, RTC Patch
- Mac model: MacBookPro 9,1
- Drivers:
- SATA/IDE: AHCI SATA, AHCI Internal, Non-AHCI SATA
- Network
- Sound
8. Reboot and you should have everything working.

I have an issue that it takes 3-4 minutes for mouse/keyboard because they are generic USB.
