HCL 10.9.2/Desktops

OS X 10.9.2
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 10.9.2 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 10.9.2 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.
Note: For suggestions about table headings, please join the discussion here.

[edit] Precision 470/670

  • Install Method: OSXLatitude -> follow this link for all the necessary details.
  • Use a supported graphics card.
Hardware Name Chipset Notes Patches Used Compatible 64bit
Dell Precision 670 Intel® E7525 (ICH5) chipset
  • CPU: 2 x Intel Paxville dual-core Xeon 2.8GHz (only supported by XC837 motherboard)
  • RAM: 4GB DDR2-400 ECC
  • HDD: 1 x SATA 320GB 7200rpm
  • Video: Twintech nVidia GeForce 9800GT 512Mo -> with DSDT patch + 10.9.1's IOPCIFamily + AppleACPIPlatform kexts (no QE/CI otherwise)
  • Audio: built-in Intel AD1980 AC'97 SoundMax -> buggy 64bit AC'97 kext
  • Network: built-in Intel Pro1000/MT Gigabit Ethernet -> unsupported in 64bit
  • SpeedStep -> Seems Ok
  • Sleep & wake -> Ok

-

  • Previous 10.9.1 installation + 10.9.2 update + Bronya's 10.9.2 RC5/RC6/RC6 fix/RC7 AMD kernel. Direct 10.9.2 with myHack v3.3.1 + Bronya's 10.9.2 AMD kernel works just as well.
  • Full installation method + bootpack (DSDT + kexts) available at www.osxlatitude.com

    • 1x 180GB SSD: Needed trim enabler.
    • 1x 500gb HDD: Works
    • Integrated HD4600 Graphics: Works OOB, needed to enable inject on Clover to get QE/CI
    • Integrated sound: Works with Voodoo HDA, but im not using it (breaks sleep)
    • USB Sound DAC (Beresford Caiman): Works nice
    • Sleep, Wake, etc: Everything works, even WOL.
  • Regular Clover Install. No pain.
  • Remember to set your bios with safe boot = no, and the most commong things known to work.
