I currently have High Sierra running on my Hackintosh, which I installed using MacPwn.
Now, there is an update on the App Store about Mojave. When I clicked download, it didn't download any large file that it did with earlier installations. I am guessing it's a web installer?
Anyway, can I upgrade directly using the installer (I have not started the download as there is no point if I can't) or can I upgrade using the MacPwn Mojave installer? Or is my only option is to do a clean installation of Mojave? TIA.
I was able to install macOS Sierra 10.12.6 a few months ago successfully with working audio, internet, etc.
But now I want to upgrade to High Sierra and am not sure whether or not it will be compatible with my system. (Tried to do it using a High Sierra USB. Wouldn't boot into installer, showed "+++++++++++++" or something.)
My specs are:
Dell Optiplex 3010
Intel Core i3-3240 @ 3.40GHz (HD2500 Integrated Graphics)
4GB of RAM
NVIDIA Quadro FX1800 (Want to use this GPU, have an extra Radeon HD7470 somewhere that I can also use in this if needed)
Conexant CX20641 Audio
Realtek RTL8111E Ethernet
So, can I upgrade to High Sierra? Please let me know.
EDIT: I kept getting this error: (See attached image)
I know this is kind of broad, but if I build a workstation that's well supported on High Sierra now, how likely is it to still work well with the next major OSx release next fall?
If you had to guess, what % chance do I have of encountering major issues when trying to update next fall? The kinds of issues that would seriously interfere with my day to day work of photo and video editing? For example, kext/kernel panics (is that even a thing still?) or major pieces of hardware suddenly not being supported, and so on...
Has migrating your Hackintosh to the latest release has gotten easier in recent years? So for those of you who have been making builds for a while, is going from Sierra to High Sierra causing you fewer problems than Mavericks --> Yosemite for example or Yosemite --> El Capitan etc?
Sorry if this is a bit broad and ignorant, but I've been away from the forums for quite a while and just trying to get a sense of how "stable" and "future-proof" Hackintoshes are these days - compared to Apple's own desktops ...
I'm OK not updating incrementally ie v13.1 to v13.2 if I need to, but I'm worried about having to start completely from scratch with each new main version.
