OS X 10.8.2
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 10.8.2 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 10.8.2 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.

Hewlett Packard

EliteBook 8440p

Installation media:

Bootable USB-Stick made with the original "Apple Mountain Lion Installation App" (10.8.0 12A269) from the Appstore.

Installation method (without DSDT):

  • Boot from the prepared USB-Stick with connected USB-Keyboard & mouse (no boot-flags needed)
  • After successfull installation: Restart (using USB-Stick as "Bootloader"), boot up the new ML-Installation and setup your working OS X for the first start. Graphics and webcam should work at this time (KB & mouse still via USB)
  • Install PS2-Drivers for ML from Google search. - Now keyboard, trackpad and stickpoint should work
  • After reboot OS X should boot and shut-down without any CMOS-problems
  • Install "AppleIntelE1000e.kext" from the file called "HP 8440p kexts" (Download here). – After reboot the Ethernet-card should work.
  • Install "AppleACPIPlatform.kext" and "VoodooBattery.kext" to get Battery-Symbol work. You find the kexts in file "AppleACPIPlatform & VoodooBattery" v1.3.6 (Download here)


Update to 10.8.1:

Original Apple-update working fine


Update to 10.8.2:

"ACPI rollback" is the key! - After 10.8.2 update installation you have to change the "AppleACPIPlatform.kext" with an older Version like 10.8.1. - I changed it with the file from the Battery-Symbol-Driver I wrote above.

  • Install "10.8.2 Update" from Appstore and do not restart !
  • Delete "AppleHDA.kext" under S/L/E
  • Change "AppleACPIPlatform.kext" with older version (use Kext Utility or other)
  • Reboot system
  • Install "10.8.2 Supplemental Update" from Appstore
  • Reboot system and enjoy


Soundcard:

Use VoodooLoader.app from here and take a look at this guide. - the "VoodooLoader.app" runs the "VoodooHDA.kext" which is located under "VoodooLoader.app/Contents/Rescources/" after system-boot is finished and stable. I´m using the latest version (2.7.4) of "VoodooHDA.kext" in that path. I edited "info.plist" located in the kext as described here (Solution 2 with Vendor-ID: 8086 and Device-ID: 3b56). To get the Volume Slider work, you also have to change the value as described here.


DSDT:

I found that DSDT after I installed OS X 10.8.1 - So I installed the DSDT (and removed the "UseKernelCache=Yes" in "org.chameleon.Boot.plist" after install, because the trackpad didn't work any more). After that, everything works fine and I think the System is now loading faster than without the DSDT. - You have to decide for yourself if you want to use it or not.

R580 (NP-R580-JS06NL)

Installed using App Store App (building USB thumb drive with the Mac App Store purchase). Will add custom kexts soon.

NOTE: Sleep doesn't work yet as well as the Marvell Yukon 88E8059 Ethernet card, looking for workaround. Sleep still doesn't work with sleepenabler.kext, tried different sleep kexts.
