Hello;

I'm here to seek help in this new experience of mac learning/relearning.

I am, at present, relatively green at this; hopefully, with patient assistance, succeed and move forward in this quest and possibly help others who are in my present position.

Regards to all.

Hey there,

 

I am a returning member but couldn't remember my account name...it's been like 10+ years, lol. Just got my Cave of Solitude back, and figured I'd start messing around with other OS versions again. I'll be venturing into a AMDx86 build and possible Ubuntu. Just tired of Windows and miss using a hackintosh. Hope to have good discussions and learn/relearn old and new things.:help::thumbsup_anim::hysterical:

New here too... been working with @Allan who has been a great help. Hoping to have everything up and stable (really just fighting with integrated graphics on my system in sig line) in the next few days. Seems like a great and helpful forum already!

Hi Everyone

Hi guys,

 

I'm new to building computers and I want to give hackintoshes a try, and maybe dual boot. I've been watching tech vids on Youtube for years. Now I've decided I want get a used office pc to dual boot win with mac. If anyone can guide with that, and with the coding, it would nice.

Hello from Ireland :)

 

I'm glad to be part of this forum - I've spent quite a while researching, and tomorrow the hardware for my Hackintosh will arrive. This machine is a home office machine, aimed to take workload off my office machine (company owned) and allow me to work from home when I want. I will be dual-booting Mac OS and RHEL/Fedora. Mac because I like Mac, having grown up with it, and to use my creativity/productivity tools. RHEL for test and proof-of-concept deployments of OpenStack and OpenShift and generally to get more familiar with Linux. I would also like to play some games on Windows.

 

Here is the spec:

 

CPU
i7 9700k

CPU cooler
Noctua NH-D15
Will fit the Designare motherboard leaving the first PCIe slot exposed for the GPU. Noctua's site says there is 32mm clearance for RAM, and Corsair's site says that their Vengeance LPX RAM is 31.5mm in height. Presumably that's total height of the chips before the RAM is installed, so I should have a couple of mm of clearance if I install the RAM before I mount the CPU cooler.

Motherboard
Gigabyte Z390 Designare
I have read success stories of Hackintoshes on this board, so I am encouraged. And it has two M.2 slots, and Thunderbolt 3. Onboard WiFi doesn't work with Mac OS apparently, but I've ordered a Fenvi unit from China that uses the Broadcom board that is natively supported.

GPU
Sapphire Radeon RX Vega 56 Pulse 8GB

Memory
Corsair Vengeance LPX 2 x 16GB 3000MHz C15
I will need to add another 2 x 16GB sticks when my bank account recovers.


Mac SSD
Samsung 970 EVO Polaris 1TB M.2 x4 NVMe SSD
I'm reading some threads about compatibility with Mac OS. Further research required. Some people online say I can do a fresh install of Mac OS directly onto this drive, and some people say I need to install onto a SATA drive and then clone onto the NVMe drive.

Linux SSD
Samsung 970 EVO Polaris 250GB M.2 x4 NVMe SSD

WiFi + Bluetooth

Fenvi FV-T919. This will fit in the lower PCI x1 slot in the motherboard.

Power supply
750w 80+ Platinum


Case
Phanteks Evolv X Glass in Galaxy Silver
The big Noctua CPU cooler fits this case without issue.

 

I can't wait to get started!

Dear all,

 

I'm form Germany and started my first Hackintosh-Projekt one week ago. At the moment still very unsuccessful.

 

My Hardware:

Gigabyte Z390 M Gaming

Intel Core i5-9600K

G.Skill Aegis DIMM Kit 32GB, DDR4-3000

2 x Samsung EVO Plus 500 GB (m.2)

Sapphire Nitro+ Radeon RX 580 8GD5 Special Edition

 

My journey started at the TonyM**-Forum, but with more information gained I endet up at a German Forum (https://www.hackintosh-forum.de/).

 

Where is the entry point at your forum? In your Wiki I couldn't find an installation guide for High Sierra or Mojave. Where do I start?

What is the here preferred way? Clover?

 

Hope I did not break any rules with my first post. If so, please excuse me.

 

All the best,

Phantomias

Hello Everyone,

 

  This is NM. Hope all are doing great. I stumbled upon this forum while looking for a solution to install Mac OS X on VM ware. Intention was just to download the unlocker until I saw the good work dedicated members have done and their intentions. Really appreciate the efforts put in by all and cause they are working for.

 

Thank you.

      Rules 
      Our goal is ensure that the forum remains a helpful & friendly place to learn about how to run Mac OS X on non-Apple hardware, and of course other general banter. We want you to be able to discuss anything and everything here, and to do so we ask that you check out these guidelines for forum use.
       
      Do not upload anywhere else files when developers specifically ask not to. We take this matter very seriously, as developers are the very heart of our community.
       
      No Flaming. This includes racism, threatening, personal attacks, victimization or hateful content. Retaliation will not be tolerated either; if a member has broken a rule, please use the report feature on the forum and the staff will deal with the situation appropriately.
       
      No posting of direct or indirect links to warez or pirated pieces of software, this includes cracks, serials and torrents.
       
      Do not publicly argue the decision of a moderator. If you disagree with a moderator take it up with them in private via PM.
       
      Only one (1) login is allowed per member. Duplicate accounts will be banned or deleted.
       
      Bumping of posts is not permitted. Other than being less annoying it also keeps the posts more informative.
       
      Meaningless and useless posts may be removed at Moderator's discretion.
       
      Only post your post once (1). This keeps the forum cleaner and makes it easier to find what you are looking for.
       
      No advertising or business offers of any kind.
       
      No posting of copyrighted material. This includes copying and pasting news articles from news websites.
       
      Attached materials must come with clear descriptions of what they are and what they do, linking to this information elsewhere is not sufficient.
       
      Materials derived from Open Source must include source code, as well as an explanation of what has been done to it.
       
      Discussion of P2P, torrent sites, or similar download sites of any kind will not be tolerated. We do not want to know your illegal downloading habits.
       
      Do not post spyware or any other malware. This includes linking to other sites which may contain it.
       
      Posting just to promote another site, product, or service (spamming) is not allowed. This site is not here for you to promote your own or anyone else's material.
       
      Discussion of commercial spin-offs of the OSx86 scene is allowed if it’s to understand their existence, but no discussion of how to use them, nor any support for these commercial spin-offs are allowed as they are not in the spirit of the OSx86 scene. Example of commercial spin-off: tonymacx86.
      Why InsanelyMac does not support tonymacx86 VERY IMPORTANT: PLEASE READ! (ABOUT TONYMACX86 AND iATKOS M / Y / EC / SR)  
      Posting Guidelines
       
      If you have a question please do your best to use the search feature and search the forum before creating a new topic.
       
      Post in the correct forum and read the forum description. This will make sure that your post will not be removed.
       
      Pick an appropriate title and tags (if any) for your post. A good title makes it easier to find what you are looking for. Using informative tags allows for improved searching of related topics.
       
      All posts must be clearly written and easy to read. For example, if you have long blocks of text, use the Code option, etc. Limit "empty lines"
      as much as possible, use punctuation where you can and be concise. Posts may be edited for this reasons by InsanelyMac staff at their discretion.
       
      Please remember that you are in a public forum, a bit of courtesy is always welcome. It's always nice to start by saying "Hi" or "Hello" before asking a question or seeking help. Also a "thank you" would be appreciated, especially if the help you get is effective.
       
      Your topic does not deserve any more attention than others seeking help hence topic titles must reflect their content, and topic titles containing things like: 'please help' 'look here' 'cash reward' 'urgent' or other inaccurate descriptions will be removed. This includes all-caps titles.
       
      Give your hardware specs when necessary (asking for support) and any other time where it may be beneficial to have them listed.
       
      Signatures, Avatars and Nicks
       
      Keep your signature/avatar clean and tidy - should you receive a PM from the staff regarding your signature/avatar, please make the requested alterations or it may be removed/shortened appropriately.
      To keep pages loading fast for everyone, we request that your signatures and avatars contain no animations or high-definition graphics of any kind.
      Signatures should be no more than 6 lines of text using a regular font. If you can't fit all of your system specs in that you'd like, why not create a small graphic to contain the information?

      They should also contain no referral or affiliate program graphics.
       
      Avatars should be in "good taste," a qualification that is broad enough to let us determine what is and isn't. Goth-devil-child-wild-eyed-in-the-violent-blackness probably qualifies as being in bad taste. Nothing offensive, pornographic, or vulgar.
       
      Nicknames must be readable by the system (without question marks). This will ensure that your nickname can be searched, and that other users can contact you. They should also not contain staff member groups (administrator, moderator, developer, etc.) to prevent confusion.
      Nicknames should also show respect to the community, thus nothing containing offensive language. Email addresses must be real (nothing like bugmenot or similar). Accounts not in line with the last two rules will be edited or deleted without warning.
       
      Policing
      Do not publicly discuss the decision of a moderator. If there is any issue with a decision of a staff member PM them or contact an admin.
      Moderators have the ability to suspend or impose posting restrictions upon accounts based on the user's history. Records are kept to keep track of user's behavior and point out repeat offenders. Attempts to circumvent posting restrictions will lead to your account being banned, and any other accounts affiliated with your account being banned also.
      These rules cover a broad spectrum and are set up to preserve a free and open (and fun) place for discussion. They, in conjunction with common sense and good judgment, should steer you in the right direction. We're all human and we know that people make mistakes... but that's also not an excuse. More rules are subject to appear on this board as we see fit, so please check back from time to time for your own benefit.
       
      Thanks for joining our community and helping make it the best it can be.
       
      In case the rules localizations should differ, the English rules are the standard.
