This is a component level hardware compatibility list. We want to keep it as accurate as possible, but please, do not entirely rely on this list when buying hardware. Add which parts you have working in the categories listed below, or create a new category. Please keep alphabetical order inside the categories. The categories themselves are ordered by popularity. Please list any caveats or problems as well.

  • 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 10.4.9 builds only.

Intel 865G GMCH / ICH5 Everything seems to works smoothly, SATA, network, USB. Audio works stereo, but output jack is mic in by default!
  1. To fix that (to change it back to the line out) you must modify the file '/System/Library/Extensions/AppleAC97Audio.kext/Contents/PlugIns/AppleAC97CodecAD198x.kext/Contents/Info.plist'
    1. Find the line with <string>ADS75 ADS74 ADS73 ADS72</string>
    2. Change it with <string>ADS75 ADS74 ADS73 ADS72 ADS70</string>
    3. The next step is to load the AppleAC97CodecAD198x.kext

With the 10.4.6 myz install disc + jaz 10.4.7 update: video with VESA 3.0 driver, no CI, no QE (no kext load, not even if editing the 830.kext). Recognized as an ADP2,1 (development platform).

Yes

Celeron D 325 Used JaS 10.4.8 SSE2 SSE3 reseed w/Semtex 8.8.1 + JaS 10.4.9 SSE3 patch w/Semtex 8.9.1, it didn't worked well right away (choopy sound and slower GUI) but I set the com.apple.info.plist "<key> Kernel Flags </key>" entry with "<string>fsb=133</string>" and everything went smoothly! Intel Core Solo 2.53 Ghz (right speed) Yes / See Notes


Graphics Cards

Please specify if your card is AGP, PCI or PCI-E.
Also, place chip and board manufacturer in their respective column.

Note: For NVidia users, visit http://www.macvidia.org/ for updated drivers. For NVIDIA CARDS PLEASE SPECIFY IF THE CARD DOES QE/CI. Saying the macvidia drivers work but not specifying QE or CI is a bit misleading. If you are using the new kernel then download the Titan kext from http://omni.starchaser.org/titan/ to get QE/CI support

Note:These instructions may confuse noobs as they are a bit out of date. As far as i know, the MacVidia drivers do NOT support QE/CI AT ALL. You can use the kexts that come with your OSx86, or the ones from the 10.4.8 Intel update with your card. You may need to replace OpenGL.Framework too. Titan and Natit are merely enablers which make OSx86 think your VGA BIOS card is an EFI Firmware one (as on a real intel mac), and should load before the NVNVDA* kexts. An installer for Natit can be found at [1]. Check the forums for more info.

Note: For ATI users, visit http://omni.starchaser.org/ for experimental drivers.

Note: As of right now, all ATI cards with working kexts have severe slowdown issues with nForce3 chipsets. There is no fix for this, save getting editting out your card from the kext or using Quartz Debug to shut off Quartz Extreme. Edit: Just use agpgart to get no slowdowns at all on nForce3. Joblo10
