I'm Kris! I hope my topic is in a good section.
I am asking you guys for help in this difficult hackintosh problem.
For a very long time I tried to solve it myself but I have no idea how I can solve this problem.
Description of the problem
My problem is that I do not have access to any apple service. I am unable to log into the App Store using my Apple ID. I am unable to log into iCloud account in system preferences. iMessage and Facetime also do not work. Messages that I get when I try to log in: "An error occurred during activation. Try again"
in iMessage: "An error occurred during activation. Try again"
in App Store: "This device or computer can not be verified. Contact the support department for help"
in Face Time: "There was an error during activation. Try again"
In summary, I am unable to log in to any apple network service.
Motherboard: Acer MG43M
Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo CPU E7600 3.06GHz
Graphic card: Gigabyte GeForce 9600GT 515MB
Wi-fi: TP-LINK TL-WN881ND
Ethernet: (not supported)
Audio: (rather, it is not needed here)
My config.plist: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1vlYJC329sz6yuTwFr-k0fOs3rfhKeI6l
My laptop doesn't have working ethernet. I use a usb wifi adapter to access internet. I can't login to AppStore as my usb adapter shows IOBuiltin = false. I've tried EthernetBuiltIn = Yes and my usb wifi shows up as en0. I am attaching my ioreg.
I've successfully installed Mac OS X Yosemite in VMWare Workstation 12 on my PC. I've also installed the VMWare Tools in Yosemite. The OS is working fine with good speed.
However, I'm unable to install any other software or install updates using App Store. When I try to login using my Apple account for App Store, it gives me this error "Your device or computer could not be verified. Contact support for assistance".
My PC Specs:
Intel Core i5 1.7GHz (upto 2.4GHz) Processor
Intel original motherboard
nVidia GeForce 820M & Intel HD Graphics
Microsoft Windows 10
Any help or pointers would be highly appreciated. Thanks in advance!

A couple of months ago I finally succeeded in transforming my Medion Akoya E6221 laptop in a fully functional hackintosh (http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/304259-medion-akoya-e6221/).
The subject of interest in this post will be the appstore. Until last week I could connect to the appstore and download as well. Unfortunately this is not the case anymore. When I try to connect I am looking at the coloured wheel for a couple of minutes and then it sais "Cannot connect to the appstore". Sometimes it comes up with this message rightaway. In some rare cases it sais "connection failed".
I am quite sure that I do not have a verification problem (I have dealt with en0, ethernetbuiltin and so at installation time a couple of monts ago).
I have noticed that it sais "serial number not available" in the system overview (after clicking on "About this Mac" ).
Now I am afraid that Apple has detected that I am using non-Apple hardware and has blacklisted me in some way or another.
So I started reading and must have seen a zillion posts about related problems. I have tried all kinds of suggestions but no luck whatsoever.
Extra information: Perhaps I have done something stupid: A friend of mine has her picture collection only on an USB stick since she got rid of her desktop in an impulse after buying an Ipad (women...). When she realized that she could not look at this collection anymore she turned to me for a solution. I am not familiar with Icloud bit I thought immediately to solve her problem by storing these pictures on the Idrive. Therefore I had to use her AppleID on my laptop. I succeeded in storing her pictures. But maybe I have caused my appstore problem myself by doing so.
Anyway I need help.
First of all: Why is it saying "Serialnumber not available" while there is a serial number in my smbios.plist (actually I finally put a real serial number there although that is a bit unethical, but that did not help either)
Secondly: Is is possible to fool Apple in some (preferably legal) way.
Thirdly: Am I on the right track in solving this problem?
