Template:10.5.6

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 10.5.6 builds only.

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

9.5.0 voodoo kernel
IP35-E / IP35-Pro Intel P35, ICH9R, ALC888 audio, Yukon 88E8056 lan
  • Source: iAktos 5i (10.5.5, upgradable to 10.5.6)
  • Installs fine on IDE optical drive to a SATA HDD
  • Do the install procedure in the following order:
  • On iAktos 5i (10.5.5) DVD install, check box only these items: cameleon, dsmos, AppleSMIBIOS-28, Stock ACPI modified, APIC Driver, disabler.kext, Intel SATA, JMicron.
  • After install completes/reboots at Darwin prompt, boot with -s -v -x
  • Patch video card as necessary, use of OsX86Tools may work okay at this point.
  • Update to 10.5.6 with this procedure [1]
  • Audio: works 100% with this patch [2], do this only after 10.5.6 update.
  • LAN: works 100% with this patch [3], do this only after 10.5.6 update.
  • don't use OsX86Tools to download & install NVinject video...this bricked my machine twice
9.5.0 voodoo kernel, EFI v9, Cameleon 1.0.12 Yes, almost all functions working (lan, audio, usb, start/shutdown, time machine) but only after following the procedure outlined here. Unable to wake from sleep (even with current bios ver. 18). Have not tested PS/2 ports. Needed to install a SATA DVD burner to rip/burn DVD/CD's without getting kernal panic. Also, needed to use the ToH 9.2.0 kernel [4] in order to successfully launch Parallels without kernel panic.

  • "You can correct the Disk Mounting issue by matching your kernel with the proper seatbelt.kext build.

If you have the 9.5.0 kernel you will need the Seatbelt.kext from 10.5.5 If you have the 9.6.0 kernel you will need the Seatbelt.kext from 10.5.6" iPC install contains 9.5.0 version, just add it at customize. Seatbelt.kext


Issues so far:

Only 1 CPU is active(CPUS=1 One Core Fix, some might need to start the install dvd with cpus=1 boot option)

Fix for 1 CPU issue: You can download a modified bios from here: http://www.osxcores.site50.net/product-1.htm choose this file:4CoreDual-SATA2 v2.10 After you flashed the bios, you can simply install it without the need of the cpus=1 One Core fix, and can use both(or more) cores of your cpu ;)

and maybe the USB issue... usb fix available or On Customize add Patched USB Drivers

  • Audio not working AT ALL. Tried every possible audio driver, even using my own linux dump and nothing works. Purchased GRIFFIN FireWave Surround Sound For Mac and a cheap firewire card and all was fixed. (worked OOB)
  • Other than audio, this board is PERFECT
  • Installed using iATKOS_5i and install is fully vanilla. Updated to 10.5.6 from apple updater and all is well.

OR

  • Also possible: use vmdonk bootloader (should be googleable, used to get leopard to work in VMware) and vanilla DVD (10.5.6) or image on USB or other external disk. Works fantastically. Apple software updates should also work.
  • Very stable and performs better than a mac pro.
  • IDE works if "Intel SATA" is selected at customize screen.
  • Using USB sound and IDE fix, the system is fully working and runs/behaves/updates just like a real mac with no hitches.
  • Install was very easy. Only drivers used are included in iATKOS_5i and no tweaking was needed after install (except activate QE/CI with osx86tools).
  • SATA in AHCI mode works great with vanilla DVD (IDE mode not tested).
  • To get time machine working if using vanilla DVD, you need to follow this guide, and it should work. http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=68708

  • 4gb nividia RAM
  • 8800 GT nvidia gfx card
  • Front 5-1 media panel but disabled for os86x - would claim usb error during boot.
  • SATA HDD for Windows, IDE for os86x, both optical drives recognized - LG dvd rom - tcctcorp DVD-r
  • Logitech MX revo mouse (sweet mouse!) and GENUINE Apple kb (from an another mac iI had to part with :(
  • nForceATA
  • AzaliusAudio
  • Was also able to use ACL888 after OS install via HDApatcher app.
  • ACL97 didn't work for me but I may have overlooked something.
  • Mac Pro SMBIOS
  • Use eno's nForceLan driver
  • USB was working and add IOUSBMASSSTORAGE fix when installing plus TIME SYNC FIX as well for my vista install.
  • Used nvinject DEFAULT(other drivers failed at boot) for 8800 GT video card, once booted did manual efi update via guide

Used iPC 10.5.6 FINAL, Install with:

  • Vanilla Kernel (Used iPC default kernel)
  • Installed Chameleon 2.0 after install. Works great.
  • shutdown/restart is NOT functional so far with my install. But small price to pay to have to push a button. Sleep works, but my CPU fan kicked up a notch when i booted up, went back to normal after restart.
EVGA nForce 750i SLI FTW nForce 750i

Using iDeneb v1.4, Install with:

  • Vanilla Kernel
  • nForceATA
  • AzaliusAudio
  • Mac Pro SMBIOS

Notes:

  • Using nForceEthernet causes kernel panics when downloading >1mb
  • Use eno's nForceLan driver
  • USB doesn't work unless computer is booted with it plugged in
  • Using nVidia 9800 GTX 512mb here, nvinject 512 works.
Yes, for now.
  • haven't tested shutdown/sleep/restart yet.
EVGA 680I SLI LT Works with Ideneb 10.5.6 using Voodoo kernel, and sleep kernel. SATA works out of box and in fact I installed using an sata disk drive and sata hd. I also set up a raid array "not bootable yet". Sound is ALC 885, works perfectly with ALC choice in installer. All ports detected. Nforce ethernet does work using patch however I used a different pci card. 8800gts works perfectly with darwin patch or nvinject. Everything works perfectly but sleep. I could not get it to sleep at all.

LISTEN HERE, If you use at least 4gs of ram you will have random crashing. This is due to the applenforceata.kext It cannot address memory in 64 bits so it WILL crash. If you visit code.google.com you can obtain a patch for it to fix the problem. There is a free program called rember and it will test the memory to provoke a crash and test stability so you know it is fixed. Also if you want to boot from a raid array, disable raid in the bios. Install to a single disk. when you boot into os create the array like you would if it were a real mac. When you are finished use the restore utility and use your current disk as source and your array as destination. Then install the chameleon bootloader installer to the array but it still will not boot. When that is done go to your boot.plist file and under kernel flags type <string>boot-uuid=number here</string> and then your raid array unique identifier. This can be found in disk utility. Right click on array and then information. Thats it and if you have trouble visit,http://aquamac.proboards106.com/index.cgi?board=hack1&action=display&thread=613&page=1 for answers . . .

Yes Fully working but require these kexts Patched AppleHDA.kext, dsmos.kext, HDAenabler.kext, OpenHaltRestart.kext, SMBIOSEnabler.kext , kexts for PS2fix etc.....
GA-EG31m-s2 Intel G31/ ICH7 Use IPC Universal Final, no kernal selected (9.6 by default), no graphics card selected (i use geforce 9600 gso and used NVdarwin installer 1.2.5). Sound was not working but later fixed with alc888 using osx86 tools by pcwiz. I had issues with shutdowdown and time machine which I think were related to having an on board network card and a pci wireless I used efistudio tomake a string for my pci wireless and this fixed those problems mostly. Shutdow doesnt turn my fans off but time machine is flawless. Other issues were a buggy jumpy mouse which was fixed by downgrading to previous quicktime version using pacifist. Other issues unidentified proccessor I used AboutThisMac to fix it. Yes
GA-EP45-DS3L & -DS3LR rev 1.0 Intel P45 ICH10 This board is very compatible. It works nicely with 10.5.5, and 10.5.6. With 10.5.6, sleep shuts down the computer, that is the only bug so far. Other than that you can perform a full retail fresh 10.5.6 install with a real retail DVD with this guide. The guide uses a Core2 Quad 2.66, all hardware works fine except there are advantages to using the recommended network card. Yes Yes, with supplied kexts
GA-EP45-DS3P Intel P45 ICH10 Installed with iPC OSx86 10.5.6 Universal PPF5 Final
  • BIOS: USB Keyboard enabled (for my PS/2 keyboard), and AHCI for SATA
  • Kernel: no kernel
  • Video: Whatever suits your video card
  • Chipset: ICH10 SATA (DO NOT select icon fix from patches!) and JMirconATA for JMircon IDE
  • Audio: I have ALC 889A and the patch doesn't work for me, installed later
  • Ethernet: Realtek R1000
  • USB drivers: Patched USB driver
  • Fixes and patches: Shutdown/restart fix, PS/2 Keyboard fix, and SMBIOS 1066 (for my DDR2 Dual 1066 RAM)
  • DSDT nothing, Bootloaders nothing
  • Soft: Universal Installer (you'll need that later) and NTFS patch if you're planing to use it
    • AFTER INSTALL:
    • Audio(889A): Go HERE and download the edited AppleSMBIOS.kext first. --Be careful! If you don't have 800MHz on your RAM memory cards you'll need to edit the Info.plist(in Windows) of the kext and add your memory speed and type.-- Use Universal Installer to install the kext. Restart. Read the article in the link above and see which AppleHDA.kexts you need. I had 4 ins 3 outs and front audio so I downloaded n3_1.6.2a37_4outs3ins_analog_HDA_headphone.zip. Use Universal Installer and restart. To enable surround read the article HERE.

ALL DONE!

Yes Without kexts no audio and crappy video
GA-EP45-DS4P Intel P45 ICH10 Install using iatkos 5i 10.5.5, select additional OHR to fix power management, select drivers. After installation, use Kext Help 7b and Taruga_Leopard_alc88x to get audio work. Then apply software update to 10.5.6. (Use RTL1xxx_1.02.pkg to fix Ethernet). (Apply Taruga_Leopard_alc88x again). Use EFIStudio to add AGP, Ethernet, HDEF. Done. Yes PS/2 seems not working with either PS/2 driver or x86ACPI] IDE dvd drives do not seem to work when installing, try if thats all you have, but use SATA
GA-EP45-UD3P Intel P45 ICH10R Install using retail 10.5.6 and this guide. It is the only guide that has everything working properly. Don't use an older guide for 10.5.6. You MUST have SATA DVD and HDD and use the yellow SATA ports. If you have an ATI card, you might have to boot install disc in safe mode - depends if install disc has your device ID. You can add device ID to install disc if you know how. Yes Audio and Lan work perfectly ONLY with this guide. Shutdown, restart, sleep: perfect. Speedstep not working, but there is probably a fix for that.

Intel DG35EC Intel G35 with ICH8 Install using iDeneb v1.4 10.5.6 with default Vanilla kernel. Onboard Audio ALC888 and Onboard Ethernet Card works flawlessly (with Intel 82566 series). nVidia GeForce 8800 GT 512MB works fine with both NVInject and NVdarwin, didn't check the built-in video. Have issue with restart and trying to fix. 4GB DDR2 800 detected and Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 2.4GHz successfully identified. yes/yes NO: Mic didn't work. (for now: 7 May 2009, waiting for a .kext file that activates the mic. The AppleHDAPatcher v1.20 didn't work).

Also requires Shutdown/Restart Fix.

Intel DG35EC Intel G35 with ICH8 Tried both iPC 10.5.6 Final PPF5 and iDeneb v1.4 10.5.6 with Vanilla and patched kernels. Neither would install a boot loader after multiple attempts and various selections of drivers and BIOS settings. Since the OS would load with the install DVD in the drive, I installed Chameleon 2.0RC1 from OSX and can now can boot perfectly without the DVD in the drive (using iPC and Vanilla kernel). Could not get video to work properly (no hardware acceleration with NVinject 0.2.1. Also had issues with every ALC888 driver included with iPC. Used NVdarwin 256MB for video (EVGA PCI GeForce 7200GS), Intel ICHx SATA for chipset, Intel 82566MM/DC for LAN, and Azalia Audio for sound (without mic support though). I am also using the AppleSMBIOS-27 Rev3 800MHz SMBIOS, which matches my RAM speed. Initial shutdown/reboot problems; now solved using the included Shutdown/Restart Fix during the iPC OS install. Everything is working perfectly now except the mic jack. yes/yes no: requires Shutdown/Restart Fix
Intel DP35DP Intel P35 with ICH9 Install using iPC 10.5.6 PPF5 with default Vanilla kernel. Onboard Audio STAC9271 has driver in install, but does not work. RAID not supported. JMICRON IDE PATA works during install, but neither legacy or new jmicron driver work upon installation. Onboard Ethernet Card works flawlessly (with Intel 82566 series) using driver during installation. nVidia GeForce 6500 GT 256MB works fine with NVdarwin, NOT NVInject. Restart works with included patch during install. USB causes kernel panic when mass storage device is connected. 4GB DDR2 667 detected. Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 2.4GHz not identified. yes with Chameleon, No with PC_EFI. no.
Intel D945GCLF2 Intel® 945G with ICH7 Install using iATKOS 5i (10.5.5) with default Vanilla kernel. Software Update to 10.5.6 works. Audio in does not work; front panel audio out does not work. Rear panel audio out and all USB ports work. Built in GMA 950 video works. "About" shows "1.6GHz Unknown".

Started with iATKOS 10.5.5, set ACPI SATA and GMA 950. everything worked, upgrade to 10.5.6 from Apple. The resolution becomes limited to 1024x768. Patch with JaS.10.4.8.GMA.950.Support.pkg that can be found in: http://rapidshare.com/files/43334579/JaS.10.4.8.GMA.950.Support.pkg.zip. -> resolution gets fixed. I use it as a multimedia streamer (stereo audio). Excellent for less that $100!.

iAtkos V5i (10.5.5) works OOB. Update 10.5.6 works from software update menu. After update fix disk permissions and you have mac osx 10.5.6. You will need Jas.10.4.8.GMA.950.Support.pkg to enable hi res after update to 10.5.6. My Hardware configuration includes HDD 2.5 and Laptop DVD R/W. It works excellent and play Stream Videos/Music from FreeNas server to my son bedroom.Great Custom Mini Mac !!!!
