g4560 build success

Was a little gaming/streaming PC. Took a couple attempts but this post proved to be by far the best guide. Used the clover config provided by the post.

Works (Note: I don't have Wifi or Bluetooth on this build):


  • mobo
  • G4560 CPU
  • RX460 2GB
    • Rocket League is getting ~79fps at 1050p at max settings right now (getting a proper 1080p monitor this weekend). This is also basically the same card shipping in the 3.0GHz 21' iMac.
  • 10.12.6 Sierra installer

Need help with hardware configuration on first Hackintosh.

So I'm trying to get macOS 10.12 on my gaming rig. I think all my hardware is compatible but I'm not entirely sure so if someone could reassure me of that that would be nice: PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant

My main question is is it possible for me to install macOS on the second ssd and still use approximately half the ssd for game storage in the windows installation? I also really don't want to reinstall windows or have to wipe any drives except the ssd that I will be installing macOS to. My plan was to make a partition on the ssd in windows disk management, unplug all drives except the ssd ,install macOS, set up the dual boot thingy, then reconnect the windows ssd, test it, then reconnect all drives. Would this work? Also what should I format the partition as in windows disk management?

I'm about to set up a Hackintosh, could someone quickly check my checklist to make sure I've got everything down?


Hopefully this post doesn't violate any rules. I'm a bit new to this so I'll try my best to get back to all replies.

I need to install (dual boot) Mac OS X Sierra on my desktop PC for better program compatibility (mainly Adobe XD) and some Unix stuff. I have a 2011 MBA running some older version of OS X and two 32GB flash drives. I also have a brand new SSD for OS X and any files I'll want to use. At the end of this project, I want to have a wiped, clean MBA running Sierra, and my desktop running Sierra.

I have verified that the MBA will work with Sierra. My PC should too, it has a 6700k/16GB DDR4-3200/GBT-Z170 Gaming 5/1070.

I have read the tonymacx86 guide, but I still want to make sure that I'm doing everything efficiently. I would really appreciate someone verifying my checklist:

  1. Copy important files from MBA to USB 1
  2. Install OS X Sierra from the App Store
  3. Follow instructions to make bootable drive for USB 2
  4. Install Sierra on MBA
  5. Wipe MBA
  6. Install new SSD in PC
  7. Plug in USB 2, go to BIOS, install OS X (I've read that there are some issues with OS X wiping SSDs on re-installation, will this wipe the other SSD I won't put OS X on?)
  8. Set up OS X on PC
  9. Download Mac NVidia drivers for GTX 1070
  10. Under About, I should see Intel i7 6700k/16GB DDR4-3200 Memory/NVidia GTX 1070
  11. Install boot manager (not sure which one)

Is there anything I'm missing, or that I should be doing differently? Thanks so much!

What am I doing wrong?

I get this when I try to boot. Since it's happening in the first couple of lines it's gotta be basic and my fault, right?

I have UEFI items prioritized in the boot hierarchy.

Question about new Hackintosh build (from a newbie)

Hello /r/hackintosh,

I have been doing some research and I think that my computer has the ability to become a hackintosh but I am not certain. I figured I would ask the experts from this subreddit to confirm whether or not the build works. Here's the specs, it's a Dell Optiplex 7010:

CPU - Intel Core i7 (3770) 3.4GHz Quad Core Processor

HDD - 500GB Seagate or Western Digital

On Board Graphics - Intel Integrated Graphics

Processor - 3rd Gen Intel Core i7-3770 Processor (8MB, 3.4GHz) w/HD4000 Graphics

Memory - 8GB, NON-ECC, 1600MHZ DDR3,2DI MM

Total Memory Slots - 4

DVD - 8X SlimLine, DVD+/-RW

Network Connections Gigabit Ethernet

USB Ports - 10 Total (4 - Front, 6 - Rear)

Expansion Slots - 2 - PCI-E x16 Half Height 1 - PCI-E x1 Half Height 1 - PCI

Case Type - SFF Desktop

Here's a link to the eBay page if you need it:

I found one on Craigslist for $150 so I'm going to buy that if the hardware works out. I probably will replace the default HDD with an SSD later, but that's not too important right now.

Niresh Yosemite installs fine on Acer Aspire X3400 but reboots on "Starting Darwin x86_64" when booting from HDD.

The system's CPU is the AMD Athlon II X3 435 and also has a GT 640 installed. Help would be appreciated.

I had previously tried to install El Capitan but no matter which boot flags I used it would hang on "set VeryLowDisk ... "

Steaming Apple keynotes freezes computer?

As the keynote is coming up I was hoping to watch it but realised that my hackintosh can't seem to handle streaming Apple keynotes in Safari.

When I tried to open the WWDC livestream a few months ago my whole computer crashed, the only way to fix it was to force shutdown my computer by holding the power button down.

Has anyone else had this issue? and is there a fix for it?

Clover error: System uptime in nanoseconds

Hi there, I'm tried to install a vanilla copy of MacOS Sierra into a USB. I took the installer from a VM so I actually have access to a Mac. Used Clover to make the EFI folder and used C
