Building a Hackintosh with AMD Ryzen 7 2700X, Radeon RX 6650 XT, and Gigabyte B450mH

Given the specific hardware you've mentioned, creating a Hackintosh can be quite complex, especially with AMD CPUs and newer AMD GPUs, which require more effort to get working compared to Intel-based systems. Here's a general guide and title for creating a Hackintosh with your hardware:

Hackintosh Solution Guide:


  • Check compatibility for each component, especially the GPU, as support for AMD GPUs can vary with each macOS release.
  • Gather all necessary software: OpenCore bootloader, macOS image, proper kexts (kernel extensions), and SSDT (System Descriptor Table) files.

Creating the USB Installer:

  1. Format a USB drive (at least 16GB) to FAT32 with a GUID Partition Table (GPT).
  2. Create a macOS installer using a real Mac or a macOS virtual machine.
  3. Download the OpenCore bootloader and the necessary kexts for your system, such as:
    • Lilu.kext
    • WhateverGreen.kext (for GPU support)
    • VirtualSMC.kext
    • RealtekRTL8111.kext (for ethernet)
    • Other kexts as needed for USB, audio, etc.
  4. Follow the OpenCore guide to set up your config.plist specific to AMD systems.

BIOS Settings:

  • Update BIOS to the latest version.
  • Disable CSM and Secure Boot.
  • Enable UEFI booting.
  • Set the SATA mode to AHCI.

Installation Process:

  1. Insert the USB installer and boot from it.
  2. Format the target drive to APFS for SSDs or Mac OS Extended (Journaled) for HDDs.
  3. Install macOS, following the prompts.
  4. Post-install, copy the EFI folder from the USB to the EFI partition of the boot drive.

Post-Installation Configuration:

  • Fine-tune the config.plist based on post-install behavior.
  • Use a tool like ProperTree to edit your config.plist and Hackintool for post-install tweaks.
  • Set up your network, audio, and other devices through System Preferences and additional kexts if needed.


  • If you encounter issues, consult the AMD OS X community for support specific to AMD-based Hackintoshes.
  • Check the OpenCore Post-Install guide for troubleshooting steps.
  • Monitor for any BIOS updates or community patches that might improve compatibility with macOS Ventura.

Conclusion: Creating a Hackintosh with an AMD processor and a newer AMD GPU requires careful planning and a willingness to troubleshoot. This guide provides a starting point, but given the complexity of Hackintosh builds, expect to spend significant time on forums and troubleshooting various issues.

I have a question before I start making hackintosh

I could make a hackintosh for:

AMD Ryzen 7 2700x

Amd radeon Rx 6650 XT

Gigabyte B450mH

If yes, it will be the first time I try
