After a day of focusing on reading documents and receiving help from many people. I was finally able to install MacOS on my device.


  • Mainboard B760m
  • i5 12400f
  • VGA 6600
  • SSD Samsung 860 Evo Plus 256

My first experiences were okay, not really as smooth as my Windows 11 and real Mac. I don't know if I did something wrong in the config step. At the same time, I'm also getting the error of no sound for the usb headset. Is there anything else I can do after a successful installation? please give me more information thanks u guys!
