LF a budget hackintosh build that will put up with Xcode/development platforms

Hey all,

Over the past few days, I've been doing some research on some cheaper hackintosh builds that I can follow as a way to get introduced to the macOS and begin my adventures of Xcode. In these days, I've kept coming across hackintosh builds that revolve around the HP8300 Elite. It also seems that some sort of dedicated GPU is required as well for these machines, such as the GT 710.

So my question is, does anyone have experience with the HP-8300 elite and Mojave, and if so, what is the overall experience like - animations, performance, editing? Also, how would the combination of the 8300 and the GT-710 fair with Xcode and development environments of the sort?

Thank you for any help.

Contemplating triple boot on Thinkpad T430

So this is all looking quite overwhelming. I do general pc repair and would like my work laptop to be able to handle all my needs in one package as opposed to carrying two laptops around (one lenovo and one macbook). I honestly don't care much for OSX generally speaking. But features like target disk for example just make my life easier.

So this is my current config. I have my T530 dual booting with linux and windows 10. I have two drives one 250GB SSD and a 2tb storage drive in my dvd rom bay via an adapter. What I would like to have is windows and linux on my SSD and a small 200gb or so OSX partition on my 2tb while keeping the rest for NTFS storage. I don't really care if siri, imessage, webcam, etc work. Sound, wifi, and most importantly disk manager for target disk mode would cover me for the most part.

So should I even bother? Where do I get the image to install? Would I be able to get usb to thunderbolt etc adapters to do target disk and would they work? Is it worth the hassle?

I should also add that the T530 I am loading fresh already as I am switching over from my T430. However I have a ton of data on my 2tb storage where I am thinking I would like to install OSX so if I can avoid moving and wiping and moving back that would be nice. But I doubt that would be an option.

Thanks for reading.

Can't format to OSX journalled, and booting clover ruins my windows partition

Have got Mojave set up on USB working but any time I boot from that USB then go back to my windows I keep getting error for "no boot device". This is the second time, since last time this happened I reinstalled windows.

I also tried to format the partition for osx and it unmounted it, then it said not enough space to format it. Now when I boot my main SSD is no longer in UEFI boot options.

In prep for this installation I had changed my bios from legacy to uefi, set my SATA to ACHI (rather than some intel smart start or something), and format my SSD as GPT rather than MBR.

If the new Mac Mini's GPU is the Intel UHD 630 (CPU: i7-8700) does that mean my i7-8700k will have supported graphics?

If not then do I have to follow the Intel Framebuffer Patching guide? (

MSI z370 M5 build

Has anyone had success doing a build with the MSI z370 gaming M5 board? I’ve searched around and most of the guides are about a year old. Just wondering if I would have to use an older version of High Sierra or could I possibly run Mojave?

Having trouble setting up iMessage on Hackintosh

Motherboard: Asrock Z370 Extreme4

CPU: i7 8700

GPU: RX 570 (in PCIE slot 1) and GTX 1070Ti (in PCIE slot 2)

I have spent some time looking at the other iMessage related posts here and have tried the methods outlined in them but none of them have been working for me. My issue initially was that when signing into iMessage a pop up message came up which said I needed to contact apple and give them a customer number so they could authenticate my iMessage account. I called them, gave them the number and now I am no longer getting that message... However now I am getting a new message which says: "Could not sign into iMessage. Could not sign in. Please check your network connection and try again." I have tried removing folders and files from inside the library folder that have been recommended by many different posts but still have had no luck. I'd really appreciate any help or advice you could give me with this issue.

NOTE: My wi-fi/bluetooth card is the FV-T919 which I bought because many sites said it was one of the best wireless cards to purchase for a Hackintosh since it usually works seamlessly with iMessage, FaceTime, Handoff, etc...

Thanks in advance for your time in helping me with this issue

Horrible latency/lag in Sierra after changing system definition

This issue seemed to start out of nowhere when I changed my system definition in Clover. It persisted even AFTER changing it back to iMac 11,2 so I then tried updating the Clover app and bootloader to the newest version. The latency also makes it hard to type because the keyboard input lags. So I guess it's overall system lag but most noticeable when typing or playing media.

I've since updated to Sierra and while overall performance has increased I still can't play video or audio or type fast because the lag is so bad.

Here's what I've already tried troubleshooting: -Tried both OS X default and newest nvidia web drivers -Updated all essential kexts to newest versions. -updated Clover app and bootloader to newest versions -Many different system definitions in SMBIOS (currently using iMac 14,2, some definitions won't allow me to boot at all) -nvdisable=1 on start up -ran Kext utility to repair permissions and caches -Installed uliu and nvidiafixup kexts -Booted Windows 10 install to make sure everything works there, and it does. -System temperature is fine

Can anyone please help? I'm out of ideas and this is very frustrating because it started out of nowhere.

Mojave freezes two minutes after login, new Z390 build

Mojave installed successfully with almost no hiccups, and transferred all of my old data and applications from my old ssd, which seems to have worked fine. However, Mojave completely freezes up after a few minutes after having logged in. I've tried countless different EFI configurations and so far nothing has helped. I'm trying to create a fresh install now but for whatever reason the usb that I rebuilt isn't working. Is anyone having the same symptoms on Z390?

Here is my build list:

Build almost complete.

At last I've built my first Hackintosh. This are the specs:

  • Gigabyte H370 HD3
  • i7 8700K
  • Sapphire Pulse Radeon RX Vega 56

Almost everything works but there are a few problems that are giving me a headache:

  • The computer throws a kernel panic whenever I try to shutdown / reboot.
  • The computer freezes when I try to put in sleep.
  • The case fans are always at 100% when the OS boots up.
  • I can't get the USB 3.0 ports work with USB 3.0 devices.

This is the list of kexts I've now installed:

  • AppleALC.kext
  • EFICheckDisabler.kext
  • FakeSMC.kext
  • IntelMausiEthernet.kext
  • Lilu.kext
  • NoVPAJpeg.kext
  • RadeonVega56AirCoolingFansFix.kext
  • USBInjectAll.kext
  • WhateverGreen.kext
  • XHCI-unsupported.kext

And this is my config.plist.

I'm starting to think that I've chosen the wrong motherboard. Although I'm aware chances are the motherboard is ok and I'm the one doing something stupidly wrong.

Anyone get i7-8700k fully working on 13.4 High Sierra? Z370 Gaming 7

So I made a second boot using a spare SSD I have with Vanilla High Sierra because I couldn’t get my 4K monitor to read as 4K on Mojave (I still have it on my Mojave Vanilla SSD though).

I used the same Vanilla install Method where it goes in depth step by step to release any issue. I’m guessing there’s just a few more steps that I need to do to get High Sierra running fully with my setup.

Issues so far, Audio (DP Audio not even recognized) iGPU not working, only shows 31MB. Flickering on the screen, using iMac 18,1 My 4K Monitor resolution is recognized automatically USB’s

My setup: Motherboard: Gigabyte Z370 Gaming 7 CPU: Intel i7-8700k Monitor: LG 27UK650 Mac OS X: 13.4

Any one get their setup up and running? I know High Sierra is a mature build I’m staying at 13.4 since I heard 13.5+ does have a few issues (I may be wrong). I have latest whatevergreen and Lilu kext as well.

Apple Approves India's Do Not Disturb App Avoiding iPhone Ban

Apple has approved a government Do Not Disturb app in India after the company's telecom regulator threatened to ban iPhones from the country's cellular networks.

After years of waiting for Apple to implement anti-spam measures, India threatened to ban the iPhone if the government developed Do Not Disturb app wasn't approved by January 2019, reports VentureBeat. The app entitled TRAI DND is now available ahead of that deadline.

The average person in India receives upwards ten unwanted calls and messages each day, according to some reports. The DND app lets users report spam calls to their telecom.
