[edit] Components

[edit] Network

If you want to work on a driver, have look at the Tulip driver. [1]

Hardware Name Manufacturer Notes
Intel 2100B Intel Has no support, doesn't work
Nforce integrated ethernet Nvidia Updated. Working with forcedeth.kext [2]
via-velocity VIA Not working. There isn't any driver available.
SIS900 SIS Not working at all
WG111 V.1 Netgear Not working at all
Intel Pro/Wireless 3945abg Intel Waiting for drivers...
Aretors AR5007EG Aretors Not Working , no drivers yet

[edit] Printers/Scanners

Printer/Scanner Hardware Name Manufacturer Notes Works
Printer photosmart 7350 HP Tried current (as of 2006-April) HP_Photosmart_Installer_10.2-10.4.dmg, released 2005-08-23, version 2.5.6. Lousy installer, forces all other applications to quit, then asks you to reboot. Install doesn't seem to go right, because printer doesn't work, and installer won't display uninstall option, as per HP's documentation. Why they have to make their new printers so hard to install is beyond me. (Still not working as of 27 March 2007--It seems that the drivers are PPC-based, which could explain why they're not acting happy on Intel-based Macs?) NO
Scanner n650u Canon Tried Canon's offical Mac OS X drivers. goofy installer. doesn't work. I don't have photoshop, another page on this wiki said they got it to work with photshop plugin. NO

[edit] Storage

nForce 4 SATA unsupported. (limited support by adding hardware IDs to AppleVIAATA.kext)

Promise FastTrack 376 Raid Controller Unsupported.

[edit] Misc

Device Type Hardware Name Manufacturer Notes Works
USB 2.0 & Firewire 400 Combo PCI Card ZUC2400 Zonet Shows up in System Profiler, but attached devices dont work. Tried possible workarounds with Extensions, etc, no luck. Chipset is VIA VT6306 and VIA VT6214L (keyword VT6214). NO
USB Modem SpeedTouch 330 Thomson USB Modem. Only PPC drivers available. Check SpeedTouch 330 website for updates. >> Consider ethernet modem/router. Check ethernet card is supported by OSX first. NO

[edit] Clevo 900T/Hypersonic Aviator EX7/Alienware Area-51/VoodooPC ENVY Series

Seems that the Promise SATA/RAID controllers in these Clevo 900T-based systems makes installation and booting impossible. Tested on Clevo 990T in the Hypersonic Aviator EX7, confirmed not working.

-- Will work with a USB drive attached. Need to modify the video and audio per kext instructions. Also use WirelessCard_OS loader for wireless.

[edit] Toshiba

Portégé M400: "Local APIC error" when booting from DVD, BUT...

when changing some bios´ settings, it might work! actually testing with 10.4.6 pached.

as i am using usb external driver, sometimes it crashes... so, not ready yet. (for sure Digitizer doesnt work.)

when have all done, will inform how to.


-- with new BIOS 3.2 probably it will work... I tested with 10.4.7 and 10.4.8 .

NB100: Installs first time without errors (at least it did on mine). Slow to install but once installed, boots relatively quickly.

Touchpad and keyboard are recognised although usb keyboard and mouse are. No wifi or ethernet recognition and the 1024x600 screen resolution is clear and fast but some times sluggs. .
