Well, I guess not many people is going to try this, but yesterday I installed a Protools HD Core card on a hackintosh and surprisinly got recognized by Os X after installing the drivers.

This is pretty weird since there is no Intel Macs with pci interfaces and so Digidesign shouldn´t have compiled PCI support in the Intel version of the drivers.

The bad part is I had no audio interface at that moment and couldn´t completly test Protools 7 running, but I will in the next days.

It may work...but given Protools uses a such low-level hardware approach to process audio I´m not too confident about, and in addition to this maybe the drivers have endianess problems.

More news, next week. :)

Yep, 10.4.8 with lastest semthex kernel, I have´nt been able to test audio yet, I just have the core card at the moment, but you can see the systems recognizes the card, and protools pass the "Hardware Check" when you load it.

The PC is a Carrillon AC1D but with different specs (don´t know why). It haves a Intel 945 board, a cheap Radeon x550 (no qi ce :/ ) and a couple of sata disks.

About you, you say you have already tested Protools HD with real hardware in 10.4.6, and worked?

Regards.

Finally I got the chance to test audio and yep, worked for me.

No problem at all.

Digidesign loves hackintoshes lol.

I never thought a Protools HD Core card would work on a hackintosh.

Are you using the PCI or the PCIe hardware?

It´s a PCI card. As I said is incredible this works, as there´s no real intel mac with PCI slots.

Cool, I hope they support their M-AUDIO cards as well but they seem to not care anymore about M-audio :wacko:

I used JaS.10.4.8.AMD.Intel.SSe2.SSe3.v1p.diskutility7.iso. You can download it from demonoid, in addition to a more recent version with ichr7 patch applied.

Mine has 073eb015d77bbf5e4a97d0d37ceb3855 MD5.

I have HD3 working with 10.4.7 with IOPCIFamily kext from 10.4.4
Still can't make it work with 10.4.8 (tried different kernels) :thumbsup_anim:
It seems that PCI cards can not be detected by OS

Mmmm, the Protools HD Core card I tested didn´t show at PCI section in System Profile, (even after installing the drivers) but the card itself works perfectly once you install them. Also I can use a pci firewire card without any trouble in 10.4.8.

Maybe is a chipset/hardware specific problem.
