  • Yes, Apple Hardware Test that came with Snow Leopard will be compatible.

    A listing of each Mac and the Mac OS X that was sold with it, can be seen at:

    You will note that all the 2009 iMacs were either introduced with Snow Leopard, or, in the case of the early 2009 models, were later sold with Snow Leopard. Therefore, I am confident in stating that the Apple Hardware Test that ships with Snow Leopard is compatible with all 2009 iMac models.

    Note that everything but the power cord, keyboard and mouse must be disconnected from iMac before doing a hardware test.
