Template:Hardware This is a hardware compatibility list for 10.4.3 builds. Add in how you got OSx86 running on your desktop system like the sample. Please see the discussion page for proper instructions on how to input your system specs. Also, please contribute to the HCL 10.4.3 page, which should list a more granular view of compatibility.

This page should be taken with a grain of salt. Even if your computer isn't listed, you should try it if you have a SSE2 or higher processor and has PAE.

See the x86 software page for programs you can run without Rosetta.

REMEMBER: emulated installations do not belong on this HCL


Dell Dimension 4700 P4 3.0 530

Method: Native install, patched DVD with Maxxuss Anti-TPM

Hardware: Dell dimension 4700 P4 3.0 530, 1.5gigs ram, Intel 915graphics, ich6 audio, NEC DVDR

Comments: Native install fails - reboots at boot prompt. tried several kernel patches. I think this must be a PAE problem. Certainly the P4 530 supports it, but it is not enabled by bios. There are no options I can find in Dell/Phoenix bios (A09) for DEP, NX, or PAE. I did try the "non-NX" kernel to no avail. This machine works perfectly with 10.4.1. I'm guessing I could enable PAE under a vmware session, but I really need a speedy native system. I'll just live with 10.4.1 until somebody figures this one out!

UPDATE: Using latest Maxxuss patch (mach_kernel.test) posted 11/23, I think, I was able to boot and install! The CPU has PAE support, but no NX. I was almost ready to throw in the towel...maybe get a "J" processor...but no need. The previous nonx kernel would not boot. BTW, be very patient installing 10.4.3 native, and use verbose mode...it takes a while! Xbench scores doubled...I'll have to do more testing to see what works/doesn't.

Dell Dimension 8200

Method: Native install, patched DVD with Maxxuss + test4 kernel + AC97 driver

Hardware: Dell Dimension 8200, 1.8GHz Pentium 4 (Willamette), 512MB RDRAM, ATI Radeon 9600 Pro

Comments: This machine has been heavily modified from Dell spec, but still contains the original motherboard and processor, which seem to work fine. Sound is good, two channel, USB works great, all my hard drives are found, and it basically just works fine in general. Dell spec NIC card is supported as well, Intel PRO/100+. Radeon 9600 Pro works perfectly with ATI drivers, only a small bit of artifacting near the mouse cursor.

Dell Optiplex GX280

Method: Native install, patched DVD with Maxxuss Anti-TPM

Hardware: P4 650 3.4Ghz with SSE3/XD, 1GB DDR2, onboard Intel GMA915, onboard AC97 sound, WD 250G SATA, NEC 3540 DVD-Burner, Firewire PCI Card, Dell USB Multimedia Keyboard and Microsoft USB Mouse.

Comments: Native install perfectly without any problem. Intel onboard GMA900 QI and CE works, OpenGL, DVD player all works. Built-in Broadcom 1Gb Enet does NOT work, add-in generic ENet card works fine. Sound does NOT work, even copied AppleAC97Audio.kext, it won't load the extension OSX 10.4.3 very smooth and fast, Xbench 1.2 score 103.4

Updated: Sound works now! please check forum: http://forum.osx86project.org/index.php?showtopic=4645

eMachines T3406

Method: Native install, patched DVD with Maxxuss Anti-TPM

Hardware: Celeron D 2.93GHz with SSE2, 256MB DDR SDRAM

Comments: Sound does not work, even with AppleAC97Audio.kext. Sound works wine with my iMic USB sound card. DVD Player.app does not work. Video at 1024x768 only. This is the PC Best Buy sold for $150 on black friday.

Sony Vaio RS-620G

Method: VMware install, patched DVD v1.0

Hardware: Pentium 4 Prescott mPGA-478 2.99GHz with SSE2, SSE3, no NX, PAE | 512MB RAM | Radeon 9200 | SoundMax integrated Audio

Comments: SoundMax card works after using the AppleAC97Audio.kext compiled for 10.4.3. The Radeon 9200 does not have QE or CI, therefore DVD Player.app does not work. Editing com.apple.boot.plist allows a max res of [email protected] (no widescreen). Everything works amazingly fast and well. Installation went quick and errorlessly in VMware, although I'm sure I could have installed natively.
