A Guide to Vanilla Hackintosh From Scratch

My newly minted Hackintosh in all its (RGB) splendor...

I recently built a fully functioning hackintosh with Mojave 10.14.3.

This build includes:

Intel i7-8700k Gigabyte Z370 Aorus Gaming 5 Motherboard AMD RX Vega 64 Frontier Edition GPU 64 GB RAM 

Why another Guide?

This guide was something I put together as I was trying to build a fully functional hackintosh for 4k Video editing. I am primarily a Final Cut Pro X user, and my 2013-late Macbook Pro was beginning to show its age with rendering, timeline scrubbing so I thought it was time to upgrade to an iMac Pro until I was horrified when I found the prices I would be forced to pay.

So I thought I would go the hackintosh route. I used the famous vanilla hackintosh subreddit r/hackintosh on Reddit to get my feet wet and over the course of two weeks read pretty much every article I could find on the subject. After a lot of searching I managed to have a good understanding of how hackintoshes (and MacOS) work and started writing my thoughts, notes, and install logs down. After a lot of time (close to a month of tinkering) I managed to complete this project with a fully functional hackintosh that cuts through 4K footage like butter. Quite literally everything is working perfectly.

This information did not come out of thin air. I am very grateful to the wonderful folks on Reddit's r/hackintosh subreddit as well as the good contributors at TonyMacx86.com, and the users at InsanelyMac.com all of whom were tremendously helpful. At the end of it all, I wanted to publish my guide, both as a template of how to build a hackintosh and also so that it provides an all-in-one education to anyone who wants to learn the vanilla method.

DISCLAIMER : I will begin by saying that while I wrote this piece from start to finish, there are segments that I directly copied (for my convenience) off other people’s work and annotated with my own thoughts. This is by no means intended to stand alone as my own work, and I have credited and linked every one of those posts when I have borrowed segments from the work of others. I only provide this as a public service.

This guide has been divided into sections which include a tutorial on how to install MacOS on a PC as well as some educational content associated with the process. Your mileage may vary. Ultimately, I am not an expert in hackintoshing and everything I wrote down here, I did primarily to benefit myself. But after a recent post here where I was banned on another forum for posting this, I thought I would share my guide with anyone here that is interested.

Hopefully someone will benefit from some of the mistakes I made along the way.

Please comment here for any questions or suggestions. Eventually, I may move this to a Gitbook since it took me about a week to put this whole thing together.
