Computer Compatibility List (OLD!)


#41

I’ve got an update:

Sony Vaio P series (this one is a VGN-P31ZK, should be the same for all models)
Processor:Intel Atom z540 1.86GHz (x86), single core but 2 “virtual” cores
Version: nightly h49250 x86
Comments: To boot from USB (or use USB at all) you must go into the boot options and disable ACPI. You may also need to select a fail safe video mode of 1600x768 16 bit even though it will come up in 32 bit anyway (this didnt used to be necessary). Once installed you have a choice at boot: disable ACPI for working USB but no sound or power management, or leave it enabled for ACPI sound and battery monitoring (and power saving).
Tip: You can play movies even with VESA and this really slow processor! Install mplayer from haikudepot and run: mplayer -nocache -lavdopts threads=2 -framedrop
What works: Wifi, battery monitoring (with ACPI enabled), native display resolution with VESA, USB (with ACPI disabled), sound now working too.
What doesnt work: 3G, webcam
Untested: Wired networking, GPS

HP 2133 Mini-Note PC (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HP_2133_Mini-Note_PC)
Processor: x86 VIA C7-M
Version: a4 h47196
Comments: Boots from CD to GUI, screen 640x480 and can’t change, no WiFi, webcam doesn’t work


#43

Lenovo X61s (laptop), model 7666-CTO
Processor: Intel L7500
Version: haiku-nightly-hrev50079-x86_gcc2_hybrid
Comments: Doesn’t work. Some dots run at top left of the screen, a lot of media (CD-RW) reading follows, black screen, wi-fi light (HW) starts flashing (at about 1 flash/sec), forced shutdown from power button required.

I have an x61 that works almost perfectly. I think you should try to boot from USB (especially since the X61/X61S don’t have a built in optical drive).


#45

The dots at the top of the screen indicate that you should try to start it in safe graphics (i.e. VESA) mode. If that gets you in, you can make the change permanent by editing the kernel settings file. I’ve had a few like that.


#46

Odd though, because the x61s is identical to the x61 except for the CPU, so the graphics should work with intel extreme. But I didn’t try to boot with that machine for over a year, so perhaps there is a regression.


#47

Is anyone running Haiku on an AMD AM3+ or FM+ motherboard?


#48

Gigabyte GA-78LMT-USB3 (AMD AM3+) MB
AMD Athlon™ II X2 270 Processor
8 GB RAM
All works fine in Haiku.
… USB3 not tested.


#49

It’s been a long time since I’ve done any Haiku hardware testing, but I went ahead and evaluated a nightly build on several machines over the past few days, and here they are…


Lenovo ThinkCentre E73
Processor: x64 i5 quad
Version: Nightly h50416
Comments: Everything works excellent. (Extra note: It may just be my display, but it initially booted in 256 colors (8-bit), but once set to millions of colors (24-bit/true), it runs fine.) Legacy mode must be enabled.

HP EliteBook 8530 (ATI GPU)
Processor: x64 Core 2 Duo
Version: Nightly h50416
Comments: Everything appears to work fine (except the cam).

HP ProBook 4310s
Processor: x64 Core 2 Duo
Version: Nightly h50416
Comments: Everything works excellent, (except the cam). Earlier generation than previously tested 4320s.

Dell Latitude D510
Processor: x86 Pentium M
Version: Nightly h50416
Comments: I didn’t get audio output, but everything else works.

Dell Latitude D820
Processor: x86 Core Duo
Version: Nightly h50416
Comments: Same as the d510; I didn’t get audio output, but everything else works.

HP Stream Pro 11"
Processor: x64 Celeron (Core-M compatible)
Version: Nightly h50416
Comments: Cannot find boot partition and halts; must use KDL. Secure boot must be off and legacy mode enabled.

There are a few other machines I tested, but as they didn’t work that great with this revision/nightly, I’ve left them out. (For example, on a HP 15 I tested, Haiku hard panicked, and on a MacBook I tested, it failed to find the Haiku disk. I did post my Stream Pro comments, as I’m hoping both these and the entry-level Stream models will be supported soon.) And as for “Land of the Leaves”, you’ve probably noticed I’d closed it; this is because I’m hoping to link to a new site with the list once it’s ready.

Anyway, I hope more hardware on the list will help both new users and the community!


#50

I have consolidated all the replies to this thread into one last post for easy access in the future, should anyone want to reference it, but do not want to merge this into anything new.

A new list has been started, hopefully as a Wiki page. Please do NOT add anything to this thread! The info in this thread is pre-beta, years old, and outdated!

Post 1 (sorted by hardware type):

Convertible notebooks & tablets

Apple MacBook Black (Late 2007)
Processor: Dual x86_64
Version: Nightly h47380-gcc2hybrid x86
Comments: Cannot start from hard disk; boots into Haiku from live CD/USB in legacy mode - Sound broken, Wifi, keyboard and trackpad work

Compaq Presario CQ57-339wm
Processor: Intel Celeron (x86_64)
Version: R1-Alpha4
Comments: It boots and runs; no wifi, broken screen resolution (pc-bsd does that to and it is more broken), no usb boot, does no see usb 2 ports,mouse pad laggy, no fan controle (linux can’t do that ether).

Dell Inspiron Mini 1018
Processor: x86
Version: Not given - x86
Comments: Everything works except the built-in webcam.

Dell Latitude CPX (H500GT)
Processor: x86
Version: R1-Alpha4 x86
Comments: Everything works. However, there is no Wifi support for PC cards; without built-in support, this model is limited to Ethernet for now…

Dell Latitude C510
Processor: x86
Version: R1-Alpha4 x86
Comments: Everything works; no native Wifi support

Dell Latitude D420
Processor: Dual x86
Version: Nightly h47380-gcc2hybrid x86
Comments: Everything works except sound

Laptop: Dell Latitude D830
Processor: Dual x86_64
Version(s): Haiku A4, Haiku Nightly GCC2 hybrid (hrev47788) - x86
Comments: In both versions tested, I’m able to boot from a Haiku CD (from the AnyBoot image), create a Haiku/BeOS partition, install to it, and boot from hard disk. Video works well. Keyboard and touchpad works well. Nubby stick mouse doesn’t work at all (it does in other FOSS operating systems, including GNU/Linux and OpenBSD, so I know the hardware itself is functional…). Audio appears to be non-op; despite volume settings being set correctly, no audio plays on speakers or headphones. With Haiku A4, the wireless chipset (Intel Pro/Wireless 3945ABG) is unusably buggy; it won’t connect to WPA networks at all, and is very sketchy on even unsecured networks. The wired ethernet (Broadcom NetXtreme 5755M) is also sketchy; it doesn’t seem to want to enable itself by default. Didn’t test this further before testing again with a nightly. Nightly hrev47788 works phenomenally better in terms of networking; both wireless and wired ethernet work out-of-the-box without issue, even with WPA/WPA2. Nubby mouse and audio still don’t work, however.

Comments: Somewhat works; must be booted in Legacy Mode! Cannot install. No HDMI.

HP G72-b49wm
Processor: Dual x86_64
Version: R1-Alpha2 x86
Comments: Everything works; low resolution and no native Broadcom bcm4311 Wifi support. No HDMI.

HP ProBook 4320s
Processor: Dual x86_64
Version: Nightly h47380-gcc2hybrid x86
Comments: Will not boot at this time (most likely due to EFI)

Lenovo ThinkPad x61 - (non-tablet)
Processor: x86_64, Booted x86 (Core 2 duo)
Version: Nightly h47885-gcc2hybrid
Comments: Works as tablet version above. But note SD card slot not working, didn’t try firewire.

Processor: x86_64
Version: Nightly h47380-gcc2hybrid x86
Comments: Will not boot at this time (most likely due to EFI)

Lenovo ThinkPad x230
Processor: x86_64, Booted x86 (Core i5 4 soft cores)
Version: Nightly h47885-gcc2hybrid

IBM ThinkPad x31
Processor: x86, Booted x86 (Pentium M single core)
Version: Nightly h47885-gcc2hybrid
Comments: Radeon graphics work (with dual monitor support!), mouse, keyboard, HDD, USB, audio, battery status all work. Didn’t try ethernet, no wifi installed in this unit, didn’t try firewire. Compact flash, PCMCIA slots not working.

Samsung RV510

Comments: Everything appears to work. No HDMI.

Desktops:

Apple iMac 21.5" (Mid-2010)
Processor: Quad-core x86_64
Version: Not given
Comments: No wifi, but ethernet works. Video is VESA and is unable to give native resolution (smears a 4:3 resolution across the 1920x 1080 display). No sound. Fan never seems to come on, so watch for heat buildup. Wireless keyboard OK. Magic Trackpad works badly, jut plug in a real wired mouse instead.

Compaq CQ2009f
Processor: Dual x86
Version: R1-Alpha2 x86
Comments: Everything works!

Dell Optiplex GX620
Processor: Dual x86_64

Additional contributions to old list in posts below the opening post:
(Note some models might be repeated in this list)…

HP Compaq 6710b
Processor: x86_64
Version: R1-Alpha4
Comments: Froze at intro screen during normal startup. Otherwise, is working.

Sony Vaio P series (VGN-P31ZK) - This teeny tiny laptopfails to boot haiku from USB. However, if you create a partition in Linux, dd a raw image on to it, use makebootabletiny to make the partition bootable, and add it to grub, haiku will run!
Works: Native display resolution (VESA), mouse, keyboard, wifi
Not working: USB devices (only tried a USB stick, maybe other things will work), sound, wired networking (marvell yukon)
Processor:Intel Atom (x86), single core but 2 “virtual” cores. Booted x86
Hrev: 48481

Fujitsu Lifebook P7230
Processor: Intel Core Duo
Version: Nightly h48444-gcc2hybrid x86
Comments: Everything works aside from broken intel hda audio driver, works fine with oss driver.

ASUS Eee PC 1000HE
WIFI doesn’t work – could be an issue with r48472, could be the one WIFI router I’ve tried.
Builtin camera and microphone don’t seem to be supported.
Have audio, have battery status, multi-touch pad

Re problem 2 posts above with USB stick boot – I had some trouble, but does work. At this point I don’t know if it’s something weird about the particular stick (PNY), or what, but it doesn’t configure in the BIOS as a “removable”, it’s a “disk.” So I can boot from it, but I need to set that up in the boot disk menu, not on the boot device menu. (And I have a couple older, smaller ones with a Princeton label - larger one is 512Mb - that just don’t work (“NTLDR” missing.)

ASUS Eee PC 1000HE
Processor: x86 (2 core Atom)
nightly 48472 x86_gcc2

Builtin microphone, camera do not work.
Everything else works that I know of - i945GME graphics, touchpad, USB mouse, Atheros ethernet, …
Battery drains pretty fast on Haiku but it’s big, good for several hours anyway.

The RT2790 wireless card originally installed didn’t work - but AR5BXB63 replacement card does work, and this was allegedly taken from a 1000HE. This is an update to add that information.

HP Stream 11 (Horizon Blue)
Processor: x86_64 (dual Celeron N2840 “Bay Trail”-base)
Version: Nightly h48613 (x86 and x86-64 builds)

Comments: (Turn on Legacy Mode first.) Boots and runs; wifi not yet supported.

HP EliteBook 8440 (nVidia GPU)
Processor: Intel Core i5 (x86_64)
Version: R1-Alpha4.1
Comments: Everything works except for webcam, audio and hiDPI (low resolution is hardset by Vesa). Wifi needs firmware script to work.

Version: 49132
Comments:

WORKS: Ethernet, wifi, internal sound, USB, touchpad, SAMSUNG 840 EVO SSD
DOESN’T WORK: HDMI, webcam, SD card slot and my (external) USB audio devices

Haiku doesn’t boot if I have my USB audio devices plugged in and I have to do a little magic trick (boot w/ fail-safe graphics, then change the screen settings, save and then revert them to the desired settings) to get graphics working without blacklisting the Intel GFX driver but apart from that Haiku runs great!

Again, these are old/archived; I copied everything into one last post at the end, but am hoping to have a new list for the modern era. I’ve asked if this thread can be locked to avoid user/reader confusion for that reason. (Again, to any readers, please don’t add more info to this post; the list of archived models is on post #50, linked to here.)
