macOS 10.6.1
Hardware Compatibility

This is a hardware compatibility list ONLY for OEM 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 10.6.1 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 10.6.1 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.

Using Retail Snow Leopard with myHack Installer 1.0 RC4.1 on a USB Disk

  • Install Only the Core System Files. X11, printers and languages can be done Post-install
  • Installation will stop at "8-7 minutes remaining" restart the machine when it does and using USB Disk boot select the destination drive in bootloader to start OSX. Afterwards, install the bootloader to the OSX Destination Drive.

* Download 10.6.1 update, install on your Machine and restart.

  • Video - install all the nvidia kexts(kest, bundle & plugin) found in /System/Library/ . After Restart you will notice that the display gets better and use OSX86tools to change the resolution(you can check the supported resolutions in Bootloader).
  • Sound - VoodooHDA(HDMI Audio is not working so use OnBoard Audio)
  • Ethernet - not yet tested
  • Media Card Slot - not yet tested


  • Do not use GraphicsEnabler as the OS will hang while booting. After installing the kext remember to set the GraphicsEnabler to 'N' in com.apple.boot.plist
  • It would seem that the OS has no response on boot up but you can move the mouse cursor. Just wait for a few minutes and it will be working. . .
