General question mojave harware

Recommended Posts



Im glad to be a part of this forum. Just signed up 20 mins ago.

I have an old macpro 2008 fully loaded using yosemite 10.10.5.


I would not like to touch that OSX version but been curious with mojave on hackintosh PC.


i also have a low/mid range gaming windows PC.


My specs for my W7/10 dual boot (same SSD) windows PS are as follows:

Motherboard: Asus P8B75-V

Intel i7 3770k

8GB DDR3 1600mhz RAM

Antec HCG 620W PSU

Asus GTX 560 DC

Corsair Force GT 120GB SSD


Built everything in mid 2012.


Will these hardware lets me install Mojave? If not, whats the max OSX i can install? 

Then worst case, will i be able to install atleast yosemite 10.10?

I dont mind if i get Nullcpupowermanagement and not be able to use my bios C1 packages and sleep or any intel speedstep as i dont use them anyways in my windows OS.

i just need it to work smoothly with MB audio built-in, wifi, ethernet, Usb port 2.0 and 3.0.

im not a gamer but likes to use Logic pro X.



was thinking of using the W10 partition for the hackintosh OSX but if possible, i could use a 64GB USB 3.0 thumbdrive.


Thanks in advance.

Your system should be able to hackintosh. However, Metal does not support Fermi GPUs. It might be possible to make it run on Mojave, but due to the lack of Metal you'll experience some graphical issues.

High Sierra should run fine, or upgrade your GPU (e.g. Kepler)

So my sytem is hackintoshible?

you have just made me very excited. 


is the Intel HD4000 built in the i7 3770k will do for mojave?


also one more thing. Is it possible to use a 64GB USB 3.0 thumb stick on PC and use that as my main boot drive instead of a 2,5  3,5 HDD?


ill make sure to run all usb sticks on USB 2.0 porta only for full compatiblity.

Intel HD4000 will do for Mojave indeed. 

It should be possible to run macOS off from a USB Stick, but I don't think it'll do any good to the overall performance of the OS.

just want to update on this thread that the system is still going strong. Pretty stable with the rig im using. 


Id gladly help if anyone needs. 



Now instead making a new thread for a new build about id specific hardware would work for hackintoshing, i decided to wake this thread up. 



I recently got my hands on a windows PC running. 8.1 and id like to hack it to mojave using a different drive. 


Hardware is as follows:


MB: asus m5a97 r2.0

CPU: AMD FX 8320 

RAM: kingston hyper x fury ddr3 16GB

PS: xfx 850watts PRO

GPU: Sapphire HD 7970 dual X non OC edition. 


Will this do a clean install of mojave or is it better to run from yosemite10.10.5 and then update to mojave?
