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.

When installing, boot using a USB mouse & keyboard. Trackpad & built-in Keyboard don't work during install. Make sure to use the bootpack appropriate to your model.

  • Processors: Intel Core 2 Duo only.
  • Sound: Works after applying EDP package.
  • Wi-Fi: Works with Dell Wireless branded cards. Some out of the box (eg: DW1390/DW1490), some with kexts (eg: DW1395). Intel cards are not supported.
  • Graphics: Lack of GMA driver & 64bit nVidia 110M driver means only nVidia135m and 140m are supported (D630 & D830). ML will install on GMA + nVidia 110M models but performance will be severely degraded!
  • Trackpad: Works with ANV-Slice Modified VoodooPS2 controller, available within EDP package.
  • USB: Works out of box.
  • Battery: VoodooBattery or AppleACPIBatteryMonitor, available within EDP package.
  • Bluetooth: Works with Bluetooth adapters 350 and 360
