In Topic: Asus X552LDV-SX470D won't boot to installer (Clover)

I am just too interested in a few programs, that only run in Snow Leopard and previous. Thought perhaps I could use them in my most powerful Hackintosh without Parallels.
Its ok! Im more than happy with what I have :D


You need older hardware to run Snow Leopard.

Ohhhhhhh so no hope of backporting new mac drivers to old OSX versions?


Post #74 was very clear.

Ohh ok. Makes all sense. Question, where could I see the hardware compatibility list for different OSX versions. I would like to know the kind of Mac that ran that version, with that hardware.
Any tips?


Intel gfx/cpu hardware...

10.6.8 introduced Sandy Bridge (HD3000)
10.7.5 introduced Ivy Bridge (HD4000)
10.8.5 introduced Haswell (HD4600/etc)

fuzzy (maybe someone can correct/verify):
10.10.3? Broadwell
10.11.3? (or was it 10.11.1?) Skylake

I know.. but couldnt we introduce them, port them to Snow Leopard 64-bit mode?


No source code available. Backport not possible. The kexts themselves likely dependent on new things not present in SL.

Well yeah... you know, I am very interested in the possibility of running Snow leopard on my hardware, Intel Haswell HD4400.
I know I could patch the Snow Leopard install disk to support my SMBIOS which is Macbook Pro 11,2 .. But there seems to be no possibility for the graphics to initialize properly... 
This is an issue yet to be resolved, and I know that natively new Macbooks cannot run Snow Leopard, but maybe a Hackintosh could?


The drivers for Haswell graphics not introduced until 10.8.5.
