This is a hardware compatibility list for 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 10.6.7 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 10.6.7 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!

- Restart and if necessary boot with flag "legacy_kernel".
- Run Tonymacx86's Nvidia Fermi update
- For QE/CI - Patch com.apple.Boot.plist with EDID via gfxutil - check http://tonymacx86.com/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=8157
- Install CUDA update from Nvidia if desired
- In /Extra/com.apple.Boot.plist enter flags - FSB:199510282, USBFix=Yes
- Realtek 8139 use: PCGenRTL8139Ethernet-1.2.0. Will work at reduced speed until you follow included instructions to patch. Then full 10/100
- Dual Core, CUDA and everything working fantastic except onboard LAN and chop issues with USB audio cards, Cakewalk UA-25EX in particular.
- Tests with Final Cut studio 3 work great, RT Unlimited at High quality playback, initial problems with RT profiling allowing only low/med playback. To Fix, remove one 2gb stick of RAM, restart, clear final cut preferences and RT profile again. Then install second 2gb stick.
GX 620 slim
- Got every thing working just installed Iatkos v2 s3 , download the combo update from apple web site and install all the patchs from the 10.6.3 and this small patch for the USB work( install before restarting the pc from the update)

- 40gb HD
- Intel GMA 2772 looking for a fix for it but the other two ones work
- ( just remember to select the first kernel when installing iatkos)
Dell Inspiron 580MT
- Working perfectly. Using Hazard 10.6.6i (patched), only needs a few kexts for sound and network.
- Also requires editing of smbios.plist for correct info, and I added PlatformUUID.kext with my boot-UUID value edited in (this might not be necessary).
- I removed the two AHCI injectors from /Extra. Updated with 10.6.7 Combo Update from Apple. Added pmVersion=21 to avoid kernel panic, and get sleep working perfect again. NO DSDT REQUIRED! (DVI -> HDMI adaptor doesn't work).
- Everything works perfectly, USB, Sleep, Hibernate, Card-reader etc. etc. Full instructions and guide available here:
