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.

Template:Hardware The below list shows all parts which are incompatible with a full installation of OSx86 10.4.3. You should also note that hardware that is incompatible with OSx86 10.4.1 will also most likely also be incompatible with 10.4.3.

Contents

Components

Unsupported CPUs

Any CPU without SSE2 **and** PAE will not work.

  • All Pentium M Banias do not support NX/XD neither have PAE.
  • Early generation Pentium M Dothans without NX/XD also do not have PAE. They are the ones with 400 Mhz FSB. (These are working with Maxxuss addon patch)
  • Pentium 4 processors with PAE disabled in BIOS

Unsupported NIC

Any wireless right now, get this error with stock kext:

   250:/System/Library/Extensions root# kextload -t AppleAirPort2.kext
   kernel extension AppleAirPort2.kext has problems:
   Validation failures
   {
       "Executable file doesn't contain kernel extension code" = true
   }

Unsupported PCs

HP nc6000

Works with 10.4.1 but no way to install 10.4.3 on this PC because the PM (banias) don't have PAE,NX/DEP or SSE3. So I have no choice and keep my 10.4.1 installation.
