Help going over checklist before setting up Hackintosh


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!

Once i booted form the usb and went through installing osx on my partition, the computer restarted and I went back into clover and booted from the usb then booted form my hard rive. the apple logo appears and starts loading about halfway though the screen flashes and a small line of purple dots appears and the computer stops loading.

Any way to customize the display hardware settings in mac OS sierra with VMware?

So I recently installed mac os sierra using Vmware workstation 12.5. everything works decently so far, the only issue is that everything is INCREDIBLY tiny (icons, text, the menu bar at the top, EVERYTHING). The issue is my laptop is the razer blade stealth which has a 2560x1440p screen, but its only a 12.5 inch screen.

I’m not 100% sure about this, but I think the reason everything is so tiny is because mac os thinks I’m on a 41 inch screen so it scales it to what it would look like on a 41 inch screen, instead of a 12 inch screen.

Is there any way I can make it so that vmware recognizes my laptop’s display to be like 13 inches or so? My only “fix” to this is to change my windows 10 native resolution to 1360x768 which will be stretched on a 2560x1440 screen (everything will look blurry, not sharp). When I go to apple > system preferences > display settings, I can’t change the scalability because there is only one option (the resolution my pc is currently at)

The photo’s im posting might look normal to you on your monitor, but on my 12.5 inch screen everything is tiny btw.
