This is a hardware compatibility list for 10.4.6 builds. Don't forget to add how you got OSx86 running on your portable x86 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 10.4.6 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. Kernels are available for most configured machines.

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

Please list your computers in alphabetical order by manufacturer (Asus, Dell, HP, etc)


DELL OPTIPLEX GX520/GX620

Method: Native install, patched 10.4.6 DVD with JaS patch - select customise install and then select INTEL BASE, INTEL SSE3, INTEL GMA900 Support patches.

Hardware: Pentium D830 2x3.0Ghz with SSE3/XD, 512MB DDR2, onboard Intel GMA950, onboard AC97 sound, Seagate 200G SATA, Apple Keyboard + Razer Diamondback mouse.

Comments: Native install perfectly without any problem. Intel onboard GMA950 QI and CE works, OpenGL, DVD player all works. Built-in ethernet card does NOT work, added an Intel gigabit NIC works fine(some people got it to work but dont feel like playing with it .. nework works fine now too). Sound needs some minor editing (see below) to be operational, but then works perfect!! Using the system as my main computer, no crashes, awesome... needs more RAM than 10.4.3 - gonna upgrade to 2GB soon.

To get audio working(copied from my post in 10.4.3-exactly the same way..) :

Update by Mc Dell Optiplex GX520 onboard audio howto: 1. Install OSX :) 2. open terminal 3. Type: sudo su <enter> 4. enter password <enter> 5. type: cd /System/Library/Extensions/AppleAC97Audio.kext/Contents/PlugIns/ <enter> 6. type: nano AppleAC97AudioIntelICH.kext/Contents/Info.plist <enter> 7. look for a part of the file where: <key>ICH6 AC97 Audio</key> { . . <Key>IOProbeScore</key> <string>0x266e8086</string> . . } 8. and change <string>0x266e8086</string> into <string>0x27de8086 0x266e8086</string> (thus add 0x27de8086 to the line) 9. type: <ctrl>-x to exit and say yes when it asks you to save the change 10. after exit back to prompt type: kextload AppleAC97AudioIntelICH.kext <enter> you should get smthing like "kextload: AppleAC97AudioIntelICH.kext loaded successfully 11. check for the sound it should work now.... 12. back to the terminal prompt type: rm /System/Library/Extensions.kextcache <enter> 13. type: kextcache -k /System/Library/Extensions <enter> 14. reboot!!! 15. Enjoy the sound :) (sound is fully operational inputs/outputs/mic in the front and the back are working)

Update by B

The update posted by Mc works perfectly! One minor point though, the following lines:

<Key>IOProbeScore</key> <string>0x266e8086</string>

do not have to be in this order. Since the only thing to be edited is <string>0x266e8086</string> just search for this string in the <key>ICH6 AC97 Audio</key> section.
