Not sure if this is related to hackintosh but does anyone know how to use BDS(BootDiskUtility),Rufus and some other program to make high Sierra bootable from a usb with little to no hassle? For context,I’m on windows 10 and don’t own/want a Mac or a Linux computer.

Can anyone provide a guide is simple and does not require another os? A guide that will allow high Sierra to boot and have mostly everything working off the bat? Or is some work required? Please explain like I’m 5 in steps.

My first Hackintosh, some help?

Hello! I want to do a Hackintosh to my PC, this is my first time so I think I'll need some help.

CPU: Intel Core i7 2600k
Motherboard: ASUS P8Z68-V PRO/GEN3
RAM: Kingston HyperX Fury 2x8GB @ 1600MHz
GPU: XFX Radeon RX 480 GTR 4GB

Is it possibile to get almost everything working?
I want to install Mojave if possible and dual-boot it with my existing Windows 10, and I have a MacBook Pro (End 2011) if needed.

(I already have a spare disk for macOS, I'm gonna boot macOS or Windows from my bios, if I can't dual-boot it, no problem with that.)

I asked somewhere else and I got these infos:
XFX GPUs are Bad for Hackintosh, I guess, so rip me.
I'm a newbie so I would like to install Mojave but if installing High Sierra will be simpler I'll be happy to install it.

Thanks to everyone :)

Using Clover Configurator, my fake serial number and SmUUID are in the SMBIOS but when I click the Apple menu, and About My Mac, the serial number is not the correct one.

How can I fix this? Thanks.

Onboard audio doesn't work while UAD Apollo audio interface connected via Thunderbolt?

Curious if anybody else has encountered this issue. The onboard ALC 1220 audio works fine until I boot the system with my UAD Apollo twin connected via Titan Ridge thunderbolt ports.

I implemented ALC 1220 audio using Lilu/AppleALC and layout-id=1 as appropriate for my board.

I have not applied an SSDT for Thunderbolt.

Again, ALC 1220 totally works as expected (although does show my logitech computer speakers as being headphones in sound preferences...) until I boot with the UAD audio interface connected via Thunderbolt.

Any thoughts?

My build:

Gigabyte Aorus Gaming 7

Intel i7-8700k


XFX Radeon RX 580

Titan Ridge add on Thunderbolt card (firmware + ports activated in Windows)

Mojave on unsupported hackintosh

Hello! I am relatively new to hackintosh (working ones that is) and I finally got a hackintosh set up on Mavericks. The specs: core 2 quad, 8gb ram, gtx 550ti. I would like to run updated applications but I am held back since Mojave doesn’t support my supposed “Early 2008 Mac Pro”. Is there any patched version of Mojave for the core 2 series? Much appreciated, Andrew

Mojave registry not seeing USB 3 ports at all

Mojave registry not seeing USB 3 ports at all

I've been doing lots of homework in this subreddit, as well as on Tonymacx86 and Googling in general, regarding the USB port limit removal tools and creating a custom SSDT in order to have USB 3.0 ports behave correctly in Mojave 10.14.4, but one thing that keeps coming up is confounding me.

Using IORegistryExplorer, one should supposedly be able to at least see the virtual USB 3.0/3.1 ports that correspond to the physical ports on a motherboard, labeled as SSxx, as opposed to HSxx for USB 2.0 virtual ports. But as you can see from my attached image, IORegistryExplorer isn't even doing that. Where I have gone wrong? I have tested all my ports with a 2.0 flash drive, as well as a 3.0 external hard drive. Only the flash drive (and other non-storage peripherals, like the mouse and wireless keyboard already displayed in IORE) work. What else do you need to know from me, miracle workers?

Motherboard: Gigabyte Z390 GAMING SLI

CPU: i7-9700K

Boot Drive: Samsung 860 EVO 1TB 2.5 Inch SATA III Internal SSD

iGPU Mojave Help?

Hi, I have just installed Mojave and it went seamelessly. Whenever I installed Clover bootloader it will get halfway loading and then restart. It will do this over and over too fast to capture an error message. Whenever I reinstalled bootloader with iGPU 630 ticked this time using multibeast it freezes at an 0x3 error.

lenovo Thinkpad T450 Stability?

I apologize in advance if this was a repeated question.

For those that have done a hackintosh on a Lenovo Thinkpad T450, how is the stability of the machine?

Are all of the key features working? (The general software Apple offers such as Airdrop and the laptop ports)

Can you easily connect your laptop up to any printer and set them up easily?

Is it stable enough for it to be a daily driver?

Is the battery life good with the hackintosh?

I am willing to get my hands dirty and mess around with the system to stabilize everything that I need.

I would like to mod a Lenovo Thinkpad T450s that will be arriving in a few days after I perform a screen upgrade.

Thanks for the help!

I have High Sierra, It's safe upgrading to Mojave if you have nVidia Video?

Hi, I have been recently installed High Sierra 10.3.4 on my PC and works perfectly. But it's safe upgrading to Mojave from App Store? I've read that nVidia Drivers are not working well. Or we have to do something?

Or it's safe upgrading a OS from App Store? I have 10.3.4 and it's available the version 10.3.6.??

Thanks a lot.
