This is a hardware compatibility list for 10.5.2 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 10.5.1 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. 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, Acer, Dell, HP, etc) .

For how to edit the Wiki, please see this thread. Thank you! .




  • Install Method: Leo4all 10.5.2 (choose vanilla kernel)
  • Processor: Intel E6600
  • GeForce 8600M works with NvInject 2.21 (only shows 256mb)
  • Atheros wi-fi working out of the box
  • Bluetooth works
  • Sound works
  • network seems to be working havent tested

R1F Tablet

  • Install Method: Leo4allv3 10.5.2 - choose 9.2.0 (Default or vanilla kernel)

Use Intel ICHx third party drivers Use PowerManagement-Laptop

  • Processor: Intel Core 2 Duo (T5500) @ 1.67Ghz
  • Audio does not work out of box
  • Intel iwi3954 wireless does not work out of box
  • Ethernet works out of box
  • Tablet pen works but needs clibration . .


  • Install Method: Zephyroth AMD 10.5.2 rev. 1
  • Processor: AMD TURION 64 X2 TL56 1,8Ghz
  • GeForce GO 7300 fully works with NvInject GO
  • Atheros wi-fi working out of the box
  • SATA works with MeDevil driver . . . .


  • Install Method:
    1. Kalyway 10.5.1, then Kalyway Combo 10.5.2 Update, then Netkas Universal 9.2 kernel (10.5.1 seemed to need installing about 3 times before being successful, don't install additional drivers only the EFI mbr boot option).
    2. The Leo4All 10.5.2 install DVD works fine as well.
  • CPU: Intel Pentium M 2.00 GHz (which has SSE2 not SSE3) (Speedstep appears to be working) Also works on Pentium M 1.86.
  • Chipset: Intel 915
  • VGA: NVIDIA GeForce 6600 Go 128MB. CI/QE working, using NVinject. All resolutions supported, fast and no glitches. With Leo4All, it is highly recommended that NVInstaller is used, otherwise CI is software emulation and QE is not working. It also doesn't hurt to install the NVidiaEFI kext.
  • Lan: Marvel/Yukon chip. Using skge.kext. Skge is included with Leo4All.
  • WiFi: Intel 2915ABG drivers not so good, so replaced card with Atheros AR5212 (AR5005G) which works with inbuilt 10.5.2 drivers and supports WPA. The iwi drivers for intel are still immature. Also recommend considering a Dell TrueMobile 1350 wireless mini-pci card.
  • PCMCIA/Cardbus: Install these drivers
  • Sound: Azalia Out. Working. Make sure that you add the device ID to the plist file in the AppleAzalia kext if it isn't in there already. Audio in works with the beta4some861_880Installer.zip on this page, but you can't control the audio out jack (no sound or volume).
  • SATA & IDE: Working
  • Firewire: Detected, I haven't fully tested yet
  • Sleep: Shuts down fine, but sleep won't use S3 only S1 and can't get hibernate to work.
  • iCal requires Rosetta setting. 10.5.2 update produced long boot times but a bit of ammendments mentioned in the forums fixed the boot times to a very quick time. . . . . . If installing from Leo4All,do a system update excluding the security and Time Machine updates and the boot time will drop from 6 mins to <1 min. . . . . . . . . . . . .


Aspire 5100

Aspire 9410Z

   * Install Method: iatkos 10.5.1 w/ EFI. updated to 10.5.2 using combo update and kernel update obtained from TPB. DO NOT DO GRAPHICS 
     UPDATE, it will kill your display.
   * Processor: Intel T2080 1.73GHz both cores work =)
   * Intel High Definition Audio works, no mic, spdif works. Havent tweaked mic may possibly work after tweaks
   * LAN detected, not tested though.
   * Wireless works out of the box.
   * GFX works out of the box, GMA 950
   * Flash Card reader doesn't work no big deal
   * DVD Burning works natively.
   * Bluetooth doesn't work. searching for solution haven't found one yet, Bluetooth dongle works though
   * Webcam works with everything except photo booth
   * No powermanagement (No battery meter, no sleep). I haven't tweaked it yet though, it may be possible. 
   * All and all...Everything that needs to work...WORKS :) play games perfectly with this laptop :) . . .

Aspire 5920

Video Works with GMAX3100 drivers from wiki Keyboard usaully works Touchpad works Wifi and Lan both dont work ,using belkin wifi g usb dongle Sound works with ALC882 patch from wiki No speakers ,Headphone and line out in work cam works with yahoo chat , but not photo booth ( it shows green meaning I'm sending composite while it's trying to read 3 or 5 part signial)

  • Sound: Realtek ALC262. Only speakers working (no headphones or mic), with Azalia in Kalyway OSX 10.5.1 leopard installation DVD.
  • LAN: Yukon 88E8055 work with the PCCard.10.5.2.Beta2.pkg (http://forum.insanelymac.com/index.php?showtopic=81036&st=500)

Add your LAN hardware id into /System/Library/Extensions/IONetworkingFamily.kext/Contents/PlugIns/AppleYukon2.kext/Contents/Info.plist and then install the PCCard pkg

  • Wifi: Atheros AR5006x - Not working. You can think about purchase a TP-Link TL-WN322G+ or D-Link DWL-G122 USB WiFi Dongle for the wifi solution.
  • Powermanagement: Battery monitor working with PowerManagement_137_1.bundle, although not until change from battery to plugged-in state.

Note: The biggest problems so far are audio input and output... . . . .



This laptop is sold by a lot of manufacturers, most notably Sager (NP5790v). Use CPU-Z or look at the sticker on the bottom, it will have M570RU somewhere.

  • Install Method: Kalyway 10.5.1 (Vanilla Kernel + ACPIFix + Realtek 883 + efi_mbr selected) then Kalyway Combo 10.5.2 Update and Kalyway 10.5.2 Kernel Patch (vanilla), then everything except the graphics updates via Apple Software Update

  • LAN: Realtek 8110/8169 Gigabit, Works OOB
  • Video: nVidia GeForce 8800m GTX 512 MB - black screen of death ("you have to restart your computer") when selecting any of Kalyway's graphics drivers or none; workaround: don't install any, then use -x to boot up after OS installation and run NVInstaller, select the correct amount of video memory - fully HW accelerated, QE/CI, no artifacts or glitches
  • SATA & IDE: Intel ICH8 SATA works OOB, no IDE in laptop
  • ExpressCard slot is recognized, no cards to test
  • Battery charge worked in 10.5.1 with replaced kext - not anymore in 10.5.2 - Time Machine works
  • Speedstepping doesn't work - unless the kext is removed, system is very unresponsive
  • Screen Saver/GL acceleration works
  • Sleep works but wakeup only works once, on successive attempts it freezes either when going to sleep or when waking up again
  • Not working
    1. Wlan: Intel 4965 AGN
    2. Camera: D-Max STK-1135 . . . .

  • Video: GMA950 working with QE & CI, glitches fix with patch, see below
  • Modifications/Patches:
    1. macdotnub's AppleSMBIOS.kext (displays correct info at System Profiler also shows as macbook instead of mac pro)
    2. Battery meter fix from this post
    3. Paulicat's version of Natit.kext found here, updated without trouble to leopard graphics update 1.0 then installed Natit.kext, fully working still with CI & QE, graphical glitches appear to be gone === Presario


iATKOS 1.0 v2, MBR file format, Darwin x86 boot loader, Install went as follows: I checked in drivers Intel x3100, Realtech 8139 NIC, SMIbios, SATA support. Nothing else needed. I used Azalia Audio driver from Uphuck 10.4.9 v1.4 R3. After the install I got the results below.

  • Kalyway CD does not install proper System.kext for the SSE2 kernel. You need to track down one that matches 9.2.0 or USB hotplug support will not work.
  • Install will hang at boot for 4-5 minutes. Install the IOPCCardFamily patch to fix this and get Cardbus working.
  • WiFi: Atheros - just add 1014 to the Info.plist in AirPortAtheros.kext.
  • Power Management: Install Power Management Bundle

X41 Tablet

  • Install Method: Kalyway 10.5.1, Kalyway Combo 10.5.2 Update, ToH 9.2.0 kernel
    1. Use the paperclip trick on the VGA port or connect to an external monitor
    2. At the DVD boot prompt: -cpus=1 -v, or the install will hang indefinitely at either the Languages or Welcome screen.
  • System Model: 1866-9MU
  • Processor: Intel Pentium M 1.6 GHz
  • Audio: Works OOB
  • LAN: Works OOB
  • WiFi: Works with Artheros card
  • PowerManagement: Works with PowerManagement.bundle

  • Tablet works with TabletMagic

Doesn't Work:

The X41's 1.6GHz Centrino CPU only supports SSE2 instructions, and as such Rosetta apps don't always function properly. PPC binaries such as Manga Studio Debut 3.0 (the main reason I wanted to run OSX on this tablet) crash frequently and in unpredictable ways. .

I couldn't stand how no one told me how to do this the easy way so here is my own step by step tutorial for everyone to use! Enjoy!

1) Plug in a external monitor otherwise all you will see is a blue screen booting up. Insert the Kalyway 10.5.1 install dvd and hit f8 when prompted. Type: vanilla cpus=1 and hit enter. Wait for about 10 minutes for everything to load up. Select your language click next than go up top and click on utilities and click on the disk tool. Click on the harddrive name and not the partition, click on erase select mac extended (journaled) and click erase below it. Now make a partition by clicking on partition near the top go down near the bottom and click on options and make sure it is set as MBR (Master Boot Record) and make that partition. Click on the red dot (aka the x button) to close out back to the main menu. Click next then I agree. Now make sure you hit Custom Installation here. Click it. Put a check mark on everything except the bottom one. click on the drop down arrow and de select GUID and Select MBR instead. YAY now click on install! 2) As soon as the installation is complete and the computer restart quickly take out the dvd. hit f8 when prompted again. This time I am going to have you bypass the setup program because it stays on a continues never ending loop. OK so type in: -v -s and wait for everything to load. You should still be at the black scrren with text. Now type in: /sbin/mount -uw / and hit enter. now type in: touch /var/db/.AppleSetupDone and hit enter. Now we need to setup the password for the account root. Type: passwd root and hit enter. It will ask what you want the password to be. just put what you want and hit enter again. All done with that! Now its time to see Leopard in action (with the external monitor for now of course). Type exit hit enter. (sometimes you may need to repeat that twice.) It will now load up. for the username type in root then obviously your password. 3) Now that you are in before fixing everything lets get this external monitor out of here. On a different computer go to google and download kext_helper.zip and appleintelgmax3100.kext and appleintelgmaxfb.kext put those on a disk or usb drive and connect it to the laptop. Open kext_helper.zip Once opened drag n drop the 2 kext files onto the opened program, type in the password than click easy install. Reboot the laptop when done and unplug the external monitor! It works on the native screen now! Dont worry about the wrong resolution. Just wait. 4) Insert the kalyway 10.5.2 upgrade combo dvd and install. Not so hard. reboot. (Dont be alarmed when it reboots again by itself when it is partially loaded back up). 5) Now you native monitor is now fully supportive with all resolutions!! Onto the wireless internet. Once again on a different computer go to the realtek website and download the rtl8187b driver for mac osx 10.3 - 10.4 Before we install this we need to delete a text because leopard will get confused. Click on the hardrive and go to system/library/extensions folder and find rtl8187.kext. Move that babey to the trash and empty it! Now install the newly download package and reboot. When we are back on find the terminal either by searching or unless you already know where it is. Open it up. Type these. cd / hit enter cd /system/library/extensions/rtl8187bt.kext/contents hit enter sudo nano info.plist hit enter now use the arrow keys to go up and down. Find near the bottom <integer/>33161</integer> and change the numbers to 33175. when done press control and x. Press y for yes and hit enter. Done. If it doesnt show up already go to applications and click on the realtek app to connect to the internet! (you might need to reboot first). 4) To get the battery icon working follow the instructions here: http://apple2pc.blogspot.com/2008/03/power-management-on-hackintosh.html 5) Congratz!!!! You are now one of very few with a fully working hackintosh laptop! You can now download all the updates and install any program! 6) Now make your own account. Its not the best to be using the root account! Now have fun!!
