Hey guys,

Pretty Excited about my new build. I just started a business as a videographer, prior to that I made all of my personal videos on FCPX on an iMac. (Specs: Rubbish for 4k editing) I also had a windows pc for gaming. (Specs: Struggled to play Minecraft)

After my first big paying job with my new business, during which I suffered through constant freezing, crashing and general slow/old mac issues AND missing my deadline. I decided I needed new hardware but didn't want 2 Computers on my desk. So I bought all of the above and built the beast myself, with the intention of running a duel boot system (Before doing much research on compatibility), one M.2 drive for each OS.

I've been using Win10 on this new build for a couple months now, leaving the other M.2 installed but unallocated ready for the install. I came across r/hackintosh the other week and have been reading through peoples Success's.

Any advice/tips on this hackattempt?
