I7 4970 equivalent to a mac?

I am planning on upgrading my pc with an i7 4970 but i am curious what the macos final cut pro performance will be. If it is not the performance i need then i might just buy an m1 mac. Thanks :)

Booting a macos on my windows laptop

I have a decent gaming pc and I have an old laptop which is a Lenovo Ideapad 100s that uses Intel Celeron N2840 and Intel HD Graphics Gen7 4EU. Is there any possible way that I can boot a mac os on my old laptop? I looked for tutorials on youtube but they said that Hackintoshzone was already shut down. I would love to dual boot my gaming pc with windows 10 and mac os but I will try it out first on my old laptop. A suggestion or recommendation will be a lot appreciated.

Dual boot two versions of macOS with two grahpics cards

I've got myself into a bit of a situation. Essentially I’ve had a solid HS build using a 1080Ti for the last 3 years, Blender worked great with it. Recently bought a 6800XT and sorted a Big Sur install. Blender support for Metal doesn't exist and Apple ditched OpenCL so my options for rendering were always going to be either; AMD ProRender or Octane (I really need to use Cycles not interested in this option). Sadly, AMD ProRender doesn’t seem ready for prime time, crashes, etc. Cannot seem to get it working at all.

So I started to wonder if I could somehow use both graphics cards in one machine, essentially shutting down, unplugging the PCI plugs, plugging the other in, i.e, when I need to run HS with the 1080. Naively, I tried to test this and ended up borking my Big Sur system, booting from the HS drive (Clover) worked fine but seemed to create an ‘Update’ partition and I could no longer boot into Big Sur when I switched the graphics cards. Still trying to figure out why the first Big Sur install shows as ‘Big Sur - Data’ on the OpenCore boot screen (Big Sur is the name of that drive) as opposed to just ‘Big Sur’. Guess HS might have read the newer EFI’s and freaked out. In HS it had a notification saying something like ‘Some of the attached drives are not supported on this OS’. Ended up reinstalling Big Sur on a spare drive so have that and the 6800XT running fine again.

Anyway, crazy idea but wondered if there was anyone out there who’d tried something like this, or has any advise?

Boot up time for Mac os 12

Hey guys and gals,

I succeeded in installing the dev preview and noticed my boot time was way too long. Looked around and saw a bunch of folks having issues with bluetooth. I removed bluetoothinjector kext and boot times were cut in half. Also put boot arg for vsmc beta, but no idea if that had an effect.

I saw they came out with BlueToolFixup.kext and while it turns bluetooth on while keeping the same boottime, once you shut blouetooth off it stays off, so use it at your own discretion.

Im on an asus vivobook X4015 UA.

Happy hacking , all.

Need some help with getting the BigSur installer to boot with OpenCore 0.7

CPU: i7-4790k
GPU: RX Vega 56
MB: Gigabyte Z97X-SOC Force

Followed the dortania guide, obviously. From what I can tell the boot fails so early I can't even get an actual error. Not sure what went wrong here, followed the guide exactly and I'm very knowledgeable when it comes to hackintoshing, I got tons of other hackintosh machines running. Had it running on this very machine, but with clover about a year ago. I used the windows versions of the guide as that's what's running on here currently, but I have other real macs available if it's better to do it from there.
I have an ACPI-EC.aml and ACPI-PLUG.aml in my ACPI folder that I created using SSDTTime (would totally do it manually, but that part of the guide seems to be missing or removed). Config can be found here. Nothing special about it, after the first fail I changed the SMBIOS from iMac15,1 to iMac19,1 cause some googling said that would help, but it didn't. The sanity check also looks okay to me, I assume the discrepancies are due to the OpenCore version mismatch. During boot it fails at IOPlatformpanicaction -> AppleAHCIDiskDriver and tells me to contact Apple about it (yeah, right). OpenCore error log can be found here, but I've already been told it's just useless garbage. The EFI looks like this.
As for the BIOS settings:

Fast Boot: disabled Secure Boot: disabled Serial/COM Port: disabled Parallel Port: doesn't exist VT-d (can be enabled if you set DisableIoMapper to YES): disabled CSM: disabled Thunderbolt(For initial install, as Thunderbolt can cause issues if not setup correctly): don't have thunderbolt anyway Intel SGX: doesn't exist Intel Platform Trust: doesn't exist CFG Lock (MSR 0xE2 write protection): doesn't exist, but has been disabled using ControlMsrE2.efi VT-x: enabled Above 4G decoding: doesn't exist Hyper-Threading: doesn't exist Execute Disable Bit: enabled EHCI/XHCI Hand-off: enabled OS type: Windows 8 UEFI DVMT Pre-Allocated(iGPU Memory): iGPU is disabled, do not want to use it SATA Mode: AHCI

B460 Prime with iGPU?

Hey y'all, I was just wondering if any of you guys happened to be running/have ran/experimented with an Asus B460 PRIME motherboard as a hackintosh and running it off of integrated graphics. That's my current setup, with an i5 10600K and for some reason sleep doesn't work. I've already tried all the various sleep fixes that exist on dortania's website, but no dice. I just want to know if anyone here happens to be running a similar setup to this and does have sleep working, just so I can know if it's worth my time to keep trying to figure this out, or if I should just flat out get a different board (I've been wanting to get a board with a wifi slot for a while now regardless). Any info/insight would be appreciated.

Prohibited sign booting USB installer BigSur 11.4 (Asus TUF Gaming Z490 Plus / OC 0.7)


I've been trying to get to the Disk Utility in order to install macOS for my very first Hackintosh. After dozens of EFI modifications, I was not able to get my mouse and keyboard working once arrived at the Recovery Mode.
By digging more, I found that the problem was the USB ports.

Following some threads, carefully checking my BIOS settings, and applying the advice from people on another thread, I've been able to get more troubleshooting information.

There is a way to use 6700xt?

Hi! I may be able to swap my 5700 with a 6700xt, but i just noticed that it isn't actually working...
It's possible to spoof to a 6800 or something?

Ran in to several roadblocks on this latest build and ended up getting nowhere. Any pointers would be appreciated!

Motherboard: Aorus H470I

CPU: Intel Core i5-10600K

GPU: RTX 3070 (I don't intend on using this for the hack but this is important)

I am dual booting: Windows 10 on an NVME SSD and macOS on a SATA hard drive. There are several other non bootable drives attached to the system.

Roadblock 1: I cannot get Windows to recognize displays connected to the iGPU over HDMI. After some testing, I discovered I could only get my display detected over the DP port on my motherboard. I had never tried using the motherboard video ports up to this point. This sucks because I only have one DP port on my monitor and I was hoping to easily switch between Windows and macOS without having to plug a bunch of things around.

Roadblock 2: I cannot get into my BIOS when my display is connected to the iGPU and not the dGPU. No matter how many times I spam F12 and Delete and End and F8, it boots straight to Windows. I never even see the motherboard splash screen. This is a huge issue because the only way to get into the BIOS is to connect my display to my graphics card, which means I can't boot macOS! There is also no option in my BIOS to set a preferred initial display output, which I find very odd.

Roadblock 3: Windows 10 is unstoppable. I cannot keep it from booting. Also, my Hackintosh installer just doesn't boot. I put my installer to the top of the boot order and tried that, booted straight to windows. Tried to avoid that by removing windows from the boot order entirely, hoping it'd at least go back to the BIOS. NOPE! Boots straight to windows anyway.

So I have literally gotten absolutely nowhere. Haven't even been able to boot my bloody install media. Hopefully I'm just missing obvious things. I've hackintoshed two machines before (admittedly one was just through Clover) and have never met this level of comical failure.

ASRock X570 ITX/TB3 "AMDRyzenCPUPowerManagement.kext" Not boosting beyond 3.8 Ghz

The same thing happens in windows, if I boot from Windows bootloader, not Opencore.

If I boot Windows with OC I have to click "reset" in RyzenMaster. doesn't have a reset at the frequency is stuck at 3.8 gHz. My cinebench scores were lower.

The SMC Fans also don't work.

I can provide EFI, Thanks
