Old company windows computer, now mine, want to put OSX on it and turn it into a hackintosh. Can this be done?

So I have a retired windows machine that my old company let me keep. How difficult would it be to get my old files (and hopefully exactly how it looks on my dinosaur MacBook) onto this machine until I can afford a nice new MacBook Pro? Thanks in advance for any info or links to guides.

Installing rEFInd

Hey, I have a ssd running macOS and a different ssd running windows 10 and I would like to use rEFInd to switch between them easily, but I haven’t found a good guide online and the one on the download website is a little confusing.

Since when I followed the guide on the download website,I had to go to the open core boot picker first to then select rEFInd to boot it, cuz selecting it right from the bios wouldn’t work. But then also windows wouldn’t show up in the rEFInd menu.

Does anyone here know how to install it and configure it properly with themes and stuff? or does anyone have a good guide?

Thx in advance!

Screen Scratching in Setting Screen

Screen Scratching in Setting Screen

Hi guys,

Recently I've been trying to setup macOS Catalina on my ASUS ZenBook UX305CA (m3-6Y30/8/128) using OpenCore 7.0 and it works completely fine except the touchpad (which I don't care about that much).

So I decided to setup macOS Mojave on my older Sony VAIO Pro 13" Early 2014 SVP13213SGS (i5-4200U/4/128 SSD - no dGPU, just HD 4400). It boots just fine but after that, the screen displays somewhat like being scratched and I can't continue the setup. (image inserted below, sorry if there is any inconvenience as this is a 13.3" TFT Touchscreen)

Just imagine 8 apples appearing on your screen at 1 time (that's what happened).

I just want to ask how can I fix this display thingy? I wonder how can't it work although it is supported - I've been building the OpenCore EFI from scratch (I mean from dortania github, of course).

If anybody would like to have a look at the EFI, it would be really appreciated.

Have a good day!

[solved] Stuck on installation script errors [ASUS Prime Z490-A, i9-10850K]


I'm trying to install Big Sur (11.4), and getting desperate about making it work...
I'm following this guide:
so I use OpenCore 0.6.5
and stuck on the installation script from USB. I guess something might be wrong with config.plist - but I'm not able to figure out what, or how to make it work...
It seemed so much easier back then with Unibeast and Multibeast..

Here it...

A question about upgrading hackintosh from a newbie..

Dual GPU Question

I have my Hackintosh running High Sierra via OpenCore, with a 1080ti which isn't supported by any newer OS versions because of the whole Nvidia drivers debacle.

I don't mind staying on High Sierra, but its difficult to find software compatible as newer versions come out.

My question is the following:

Can I use the iGPU (Intel HD 530) for OSX, via DisplayPort, and run a separate HDMI cable from the 1080ti into the same monitor for Windows?

Has anyone tried this sort of set up, and how did it go?

Bluetooth issue Monterey


My laptop is Asus ROG G771JW. Wifi BT cards is BCM94352HMB.

I am find last builds of all my kexts in the Internet and try it. WiFi —working, BlueTooth — working with different devices, but some troubles with iPhone. AirDrop working.


- if I disable BT (with standard option in any menu) I cannot enable it.

- if I connect my iPhone from BT menu of MacOs — connection refusing after 10-15 seconds.

- if I connect my iPhone from BT menu of iPhone — connection stable, but no integration like handoff is not working

- hand off not working (for example, I try take a picture from iPhone with menu for Notes menu File>Import from iPhone; after 10-15 seconds it got message that ‘no connection’)

- sometimes in macOS WiFi menu is appear option of iPhones’ as modem. but irregularly

In Hackintool BT as usb connected as builtin, but FW loaded without a checkmark; however in settings version of firmware not 4096. In Hackintool kexts displays only AirportBrcmFixup and BrcmPatchRAM. no firmware, no bluetool.

If you have some ideas how it must working — or how you set up the bt and wf on your laptop, please, write me.

Help fix sound

Help fix sound

Hello, i'm finally able to install Catalina 10.15.7 on Asus x450CA. The specs are:

  • Intel Core i3 3217U (Ivy Bridge)
  • 4GB RAM
  • SSD SATA 256GB
  • Intel HD Graphics 4000

Everything works as expected but sound. It got RealtekALC 270, i've tried every layout-id using boot-args alcid= (3,4, 21, 27, 28) listed in acidanthera github one by one but none of these work. Any ideas to fix the sound?

Been lurking on this sub for a while and for my first Hackintosh I chose… an old netbook

OpenCore Windows/Mac Startup Disk

Hey guys, Is it possible to make Opencore run the previously booted OS?

If I set my Mac startup disk correctly and restart, then Opencore automatically selects my Mac. If I then boot into windows and reboot it changes it back to windows.

However if I then boot back into Mac again and reboot it still stays on windows unless I change the startup disk again. Even if I wanted to just keep my Mac drive as the startup this won't work either as once booting into windows it changes it back. I would prefer it to alternate however if possible.

Black screen when I try to boot USB drive?

I’ve been stuck at this for a while, I’ve followed so many setup guides, I made a USB installer via Unibeast (I didn’t check any of the graphics stuff since my hardware back at my desktop is GTX 1080) After that I put the multibeast folder on there, both of these on Mac. Then when I go to boot loader by using F12, I select it and it just black screens. Ok then, so now I try to install Clover on the USB drive using this method here. Nothing again. Just a black screen, I’ve been at this for hours and I don’t know what I’m doing wrong, I haven’t been able to load Mac on my PC even once. Secure boot is also off.

EDIT: also yes, my flash drive was properly formatted with GUID table and Mac (journaled). I’m attempting to install Catalina

Installing macOs on separate ssd

Hi everyone,

I know that question my sound stupid buy i am just new to hackintosh and dont really understand one thing.

Currently i got Win10 and would like to instal Catalina on a separate SSD, absolutely empty.

Everywhere i see sentences like copy your files in case something happens etc. But i dont understand what could happen during installation if it is a completely differend SSD, surely my Win10 and its hardrive shouldnt be touched at all?

Please advice me on that whether i am wrong or right? And if i am wrong, what exactly should i save prior installation?

Cheerz everyone!

How do I extend my EFI partition to 200mb?

How do I extend my EFI partition to 200mb?

Hey guys, I have a small problem that's bothering me. I am trying to dual boot windows 10 and Mac OS Catalina on my dell inspiron 14 5490, the only issue is that the guide says Mac OS needs the efi partition to be 200mb, but my efi is currently at 150mb (screenshot below). Is there a way to extend it to 200mb without breaking windows?
Thanks in advance.
