First hackintosh

So, I’m getting an SSD for my main laptop that I’ve been wanting to turn into a hackintosh for a while now and I need some advice.

It’s an Asus X751LN laptop it has an i7-4510U, 8gb of RAM, a GeForce 840m 2gb and a Realtek HD audio sound card (not sure which exact model rn). The WiFi card is a Qualcomm atheros AR-something but I can get another if it’s not compatible.

I don’t know which version of OS X I should use and what bootloader to use (I’d prefer clover but I’m open to suggestions.

Help me out here I’m kinda lost

Stuck when booting BigSur

Hi all!

I decided to try macOS BigSur on my desktop. I created the USB with createinstallmedia and then booted from it. I successfully installed the os but then when I chose the BigSur disk in OC it got stuck (image). Then I tried putting the disk into server and creating VM and installing it like that. It got stuck on the same point again. The EFI folder I use can be found here. Catalina is working flawlessly. Anyone have any idea how to fix this?

My specs are:
- i5-6500
- 16GB RAM
- ASUS DUAL RX 5500 XT
- MSI Z270 PC-MATE

Hackintosh advice for newbie

Hi everyone, I'm a software developer and had been using Macbook last 7 years, but it slowed a lot and since Macbooks are very expensive especially in my country I created a desktop. But not having information about hackintosh possibilities I created a desktop with Ryzen 5 and Rtx2060. Now I'm struggling with Windows because of my unix habit and switch to linux but it is not polished as macos.

So now I'm planning to sell 2060 if possible and get a new RX5700 or RX5700XT. My question is should I wait for new 6000 series for price drop, or any other advice since I have very shallow information about hackintoshs (maybe getting cheaper gpu just to run macos and keeping 2060 for gaming, i have dual pcie slot on my mobo)

Installing Question About Laptop With Desktop CPU and 1070 OC

Hi, I want to install Hackintosh Dual Boot (separate drive) to my laptop but it is a different laptop than usual so I wanted to ask the community.

I have a desktop 9700K with it's iGPU disabled from bios (locked setting) and an overclocked 1070. I'll install High Sierra because of the NVIDIA GPU.

Should I install a Laptop or a Desktop High Sierra ISO? If you know any similar build guides can you link them?

And I'll install the Hackintosh to a separate drive. I don't want my windows boot manager to be corrupt/overwritten by Hackintosh bootloader (happened before with clover). What should I do?

I'll be very happy if you can answer these. Thanks

Mojave installer always kernel panics using OpenCore on 2018 Razer Blade Advanced

Mojave installer always kernel panics using OpenCore on 2018 Razer Blade Advanced

Hey everyone, I've been trying to get Mojave (or even Catalina at this point) working on my 2018 Razer Blade 15 Advanced model. I tried using some pre-made configurations, none of which worked so i went and created an OpenCore installer USB from scratch, following a guide. (https://dortania.github.io/OpenCore-Install-Guide/) Long story short, so far I have not been able to boot the installer at all. It always kernel panics, every single time. I've checked and rechecked everything, my config.plist, my bios settings, my kexts, everything. This also happens with both a Mojave installer, and a Catalina installer. So far I haven't seen any differences with trying different versions of macOS. Nothing I do seems to change the panic screen at all, so I'm not sure what I'm missing. I've attached a screenshot of the panic, hopefully someone can make sense of it and tell me what I'm doing wrong. I can also send my EFI folder if anyone wants to have a look for themselves.

would it be possible to do hackintosh on an acer sw5-012 laptop?

title. relatively old, i know, but i’m curious if it has the specs necessary or if it’s a possibility worth exploring.

cpu- intel atom z3735f 1.33 ghz

motherboard- fendi 2

gpu- just says intel hd graphics and revision f? idk

2gb ram

idk if this is enough, but i'd love to know if hackintosh (or emulation) is worth considering for this old machine. my current pc is better but the gpu is nvidia so it's not compatible, so tbh if this didn't work i wouldn't be losing much. thank you!

Help Booting a Ryzentosh

Specs: AMD Ryzen 5 2600

Gigabyte B450m DS3H

8 GB ram

AMD Radeon 580 Saphire Nitro+

Trying to install latest version of Catalonia

This is my first hackintosh build and I had followed the OpenCore installation guide (using OpenCore 0.6.2), however when I try and boot I keep getting the error:

[EB|`B:WFDW] Err(0xE), 0 @ LocHB 71B4903C-14EC-42C4-BDC6-CE1449930E49

I know others have had similar issues and I have gone through and tried all of the information that I had found, but I still cannot get past this error.

Tried:

Only leaving keyboard plugged in (besides boot usb)

changing SetupVirtualMap and RebuildAppleMemoryMap settings

Enabling and disabling Above4GDecoding

Even tried using multiple pre made clover EFI (Not suggested; however, I did not check through the files either so there could have been a problem within them)

[OpenCore] When going to install Catalina, I get an “internet connection is required to install macOS” pop up

I created the usb through the tool in windows (I can’t remember what it was called) and I turned off the recovery only option thinking that would work but it doesn’t. I tried usb tethering from a jailbroken phone but it wouldn’t detect it even though it was recognized in terminal. I have a macOS compatible WiFi dongle (tp link TL-WN823N) but I need to install the driver post-install unless I can do it in the setup screen.

M.2 Key A/E-Key Adapter Paired with BCM94360CD NOT WORKING

So I have an ITX board and want wifi/bluetooth to work. I used a DW1560 but I constantly have issues with it. Also with a dw1560 bluetooth doesn't work in bios while an apple Broadcom wifi chip works in bios. I used an NGFF M.2 Key A/E Adapter paired with a BCM94360CD but it doesn't seem to be working. After doing research I think its because this is an A/E Key adaptor while my motherboard uses a M.2 Socket (Key E). Any ideas what I can do?

would a NGFF WLAN BCM94360NG work with bluetooth in bios?

Kernel Panic - Help ! (OpenCore 0.6.2, Intel Core i5-7200U, HD Graphics 620, Intel HM175, Geforce GTX 1050)

Hello everyone, I just had a kernel panic trying to install macOS Catalina on my laptop with OpenCore.

I configured my USB key on a virtual machine from Big Sur, with VMware, and I used this guide: https://dortania.github.io/OpenCore-Install-Guide/config-laptop.plist/kaby-lake.html#starting-point.

Here is my configuration (HP Pavilion 17ab307nf) :

  • Processor: Intel Core i5 7200U (Kaby Lake)
  • Motherboard: Intel HM175
  • Graphics card 1: Intel HD Graphics 620
  • Graphics card 2: Geforce GTX 1050 (4GB vram)

I added an SSD and a RAM strip.

I know that the information I provide is not enough to make a true diagnosis, but I just don't know what else to put on! Ask me for information and I will give it to you.

Thank you in advance!

Well Well.. 4k@60 Works on macOS, but NOT on Windows 10

GPU is 5700XT. Just connected my Samsung 4k TV to my PC with a long 15 Meter HDMI cable, with a big 4K label on its package (my guess is its 1.4a+). I'm getting a black screen on Windows 10 trying 4K@60, 1440p@120 works.

Tried booting to macOS and 4k@60 works great! with HDR!

This is dissapointing.. but I guess props to Apple?

Aspire 3 A315-53

Decided to hack this one and to my surprise it is performing well than windows 10. I know the specs weren't that good but at least it is usable now. Might upgrade SSD/RAM/WiFi soon since I was able to get everything working except for the continuity features that isn't supported on intel wifi/bt cards. :)

For those who own the same laptop and want to try, you may follow Dortania guide with OpenCore 0.6.2.

Kernel Panics after installing OpenCore. Help needed

Hi there. I'm suffering from Kernel Panics after finally migrating from Clover to OpenCore. I'll try to explain all the details here:

Hardware:

  • Gigabyte z87x D3H
  • i5 4670k Haswell, 16GB RAM (tested several times during the years without issue)
  • Radeon 580 8GB and iGPU enabled.
  • iMac 14,2
  • 1 SSD for MacOS Catalina, with OpenCore 0.62 installed with the official guide from this sub (Dortania), following the guide and the Haswell recommendations to the point.
  • 1 HDD for Windows 10
  • All of the hibernation features are disabled.
  • Used Onyx to clean all system caches to clean any potential issue from MacOS.
  • The KP happens after resume from sleep. The screen freezes, it doesn't restart.

The last two kernel panic reports I had since I installed OpenCore look a bit different than the previous ones I had from Clover, I'll paste the last one here:

Unable to OpenCore | Boot Loop

Unable to OpenCore | Boot Loop

Before someone calls me stupid, I checked the Troubleshooting Guide but was still unable to get it working. When I select my USB in the Boot Menu, it simply brings me right back to the Boot Menu. Does anyone have any ideas of why this is happening? I figured this was because of the folder structure, but I can confirm that it is indeed correct:

  • Intel i7-9700K

Catalina UHD 620 Whiskey Lake Issue

So, I've gotten kinda far with my laptop but Im having a issue. I followed the Opencore guide and made my platform id the laptop version of the UHD. It freezes at verbose on boot with the device-id but if i delete the id it boots but shows 31mb. If I use the NUC version of the UHD but with the device-id it shows a black screen. I think the NUC version is the correct one based off that but Im not sure. I dont know where to go from here to fix this issue. Here is my plist

Changing SMBIOS for future compatibility (Ivy Bridge)

I have an Ivy Bridge machine (i5-3570) with a GT 710 2 GB GPU. I am currently using iMac13,2 as my SMBIOS, but I’m reading in the OpenCore guide (just got switched over!) that 13,2 will not be compatible with Big Sur. They recommend using MacPro6,1.

Can anyone foresee any issues with my hardware running as MacPro6,1?

I guess I’m just a little surprised that the best suited definition for this little desktop is a Mac Pro model.

Wifi Card

I recently wanted to Hackintosh my laptop and while going through guides they had told that Intel wifi cards don't work at all without patches. So hearing this I thought, well my laptop is having an Intel I3 so it should be an Intel wifi card right? WRONG it was an Atheros QCA9377 Wireless Card with Bluetooth and wifi. So is this card supported using a patch or in some way is it possible to make this supported on mac os Big Sur ( I wanted to be on the latest version)

Radeon HD 6850 on El Capitan

Quick question, I am currently using an old Radeon HD 4350 on El Capitan but it does not have QE/CI enabled.

I am able to grab a Radeon HD 6850 for cheap and wondering if there's support for it on El Capitan? Will it have QE/CI enabled? Will it work natively or will require kext/patch?

Please advise! Appreciate all the help!

Can Someone look into iMessage an airdrop background app for windows?

how do I run a segment of a mac os VM. I want to run a windows background app that can interface with an "imessage for windows" and airdrop apps. possibly a face time one too. This would work by passing the information through windows to the VM, or vice versa. Also, is anyone up for the adventure of coding this for me as an open-source app for free? Is there also any way this would work.

General Q, does a video card do anything for 10.14?

I currently have a Core i5-4670K with 16 gb RAM and an RX570 in my system. I dual boot into Windows for gaming (lite gaming of course). I'm in the process of building a new computer when Zen 3 comes out (hopefully with a RTX 3080) and was looking to migrate the Hackintosh into an ITX case without the video card and rely on on-board video. So, does the video card add any functionality to a hackintosh (if i'm not gaming) for things like Photos, web browsing, Pages/Numbers etc?
