Template:10.5.7

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 10.5.7 builds only.

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

Hardware Name Chipset Notes EFI/Vanilla kernel working Fully Working w/o Patch
Conroe945G-DVI Intel 945 *Original Install with iDeneb 10.5.6 & Seatbelt fix - LAN Onboard with http://www.necnet.de/krass.man/Installers/RTL1xxx%20Installer.html
  • Updated to iDeneb 10.5.7: required 2 restarts keying in "voodoo" at startup options. Updater defaults to vanilla.
  • Kernel: Install vanilla (not working) Puts voodoo on hold - (type "voodoo" at start options)
  • Audio: Stereo Out only with Azalia kext.
  • USB: USB 2.0 and 1.1 work fully.
  • SATA: Works with full SATAII implementation using drivers on install DVD
  • Seatbelt patched with iDeneb 10.5.6 - it held through the updater
  • Restart: Works fine.
  • Shutdown: Also fine.
  • Sleep: Haven't tried sleep.
No - Use Voodoo No

LAN & Audio

  • Install method: iDeneb 1.4 (10.5.6) with iDeneb 10.5.7 Combo Update
  • AMD 64 X2 5400+ BE
  • 2 GB DDR2 PC2-6400 400 Mhz Dual Channel
  • Kernel: AnV XNU 1.4 Kernel (didn´t work with Voodoo 9.5.0, first you must boot with "anv")
  • Audio: works with ALC888
  • USB: works
  • SATA/SATAII: works with AHCI or nonRaid
  • Seatbelt is required (from iDeneb 1.4)
  • Restart: works
  • Shutdown: doesn´t work
  • Sleep: won´t wake up
AnV XNU 1.4 Kernel need some patches
4CoreDual-SATA2 VIA PT880 ProUltra / VIA VT8237S
  • Install Method: iPC OS 10.5.6 Final PPF5 and iDeneb 10.5.7 Combo Update. After the combo update you must start with voodoo or anv option. and from The Combo Update KIT you must start iDeneb.Tool.rev1.mpkg and select anv or voodoo from kernels to be the default kernel. That's it, you're done.
  • Kernel: Voodoo on 10.5.6, AnV XNU 1.4 Kernel on 10.5.7 but it works with Voodoo as well
  • BIOS Version: 2.1
  • BIOS Options: Disabled Serial, Parallel & MIDI Ports, No-Excute Memory Protection = Enabled, HPET Table = Enabled (not taking the Credit)
  • Intel Dual Core E5200, 2GB DDR2 @667Mhz
  • Audio: ALC888 in & out stereo working with VoodooHDA.kext(google it)
  • LAN: ViaRhine (II) works (on cutstomize Add Via Rhine Driver)
  • IDE: Works
  • SATA: Works
  • Sleep, Shutdown & Restart Work

  • "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: download a modified bios, [1] choose 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 ;)

Voodoo 9.5.0 Kernel/AnV XNU 1.4 Kernel no

GA-P45-UD3LR P45 + IHC10R Install method: Probably one of the most compatible boards out there.

(not tested on ATI vid cards)

  • Setup BIOS - Set for AHCI mode. Set power save to STR.
  • Boot to CD image in UD3LR_pack.zip (http://www.cdmotorworks.com/UD3LR_Pack.zip)
  • Swap Retail DVD at prompt. Install normally (Ethernet works during install so you can register during install). Reboot with Boot CD again. Do Software updates. Do 10.5.7 update.
  • Install Chameleon 2 RC1 into your hard drive. Copy 5 kexts to Extra folder that Chameleon creates, run script to creat mkext. Install sound kexts with kext helper b7.
  • Use OSX86Tools or UInstaller to set strings for Video and ethernet. Reboot to hard drive.
  • Everything works including sleep (leave cd in drive to get sleep to work), Time Machine, Audio in and out, fully update enabled and very stable.
