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 10.6.8 builds only.

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

  • 4) In Bootloader options --> USB check all.
  • 5) In the same menu check Ethernet too and, if you want, check Legacy Logo (you will have the original Apple Logo when booting)
  • 6) In "Patches" menu don't touch anything. Don't use modified kernels or USB fixes.
  • 7) In "Drivers" menu check only "Main Hardware" --> "Sound" --> Both drivers (Vodoo and Apple). If you use PS/2 keyboard or mouse, check PS/2 too.
  • 8) Don't touch VGA for now.
