Hello there, I want to know if my laptop is compatible to install macos alongside windows. I have tried a few tutorials, which involved installing macos Sierra on a virtual machine and then downloading macos Sierra installation and flashing the installation into a pendrive with [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url]. I have tried setting the Bios accordingly for it to boot but it didn't work, I cannot boot into the installation. The tutorials which I tried were made for laptops with similar specs to mine. What I want to ask you is if my laptop is really compatible or not and if there are any existing tutorials that can help me install macos on my computer. (I know that the wifi card won't work, but I don't have a problem with that).
Here are my specs:
Intel I3-3120m (2.50ghz)
6gb ram
kingston ssd 256gb
Graphics Intel HD 4000
Bios legacy and uefi compatibility
Broadcom 802.11.n Network Adapter

Your Ivy Bridge laptop is, on paper, compatible.  What you need to identify is whether you have an actual macOS installation problem or a bootloader problem. Could be a combination of both of course...

 

You'll have to describe what you do (for instance, how you install macOS and Clover) and what the symptoms of the issue(s) you encounter are. And post a zipped copy of your Clover EFI folder too.

I installed MacOS Sierra on VMWare and then I downloaded the MacOS Sierra installation from the AppStore. Then I used [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] to flash the pendrive. I uploaded an image of the error I encounter when I try to boot from the pendrive, and I uploaded the EFI Clover folder which is for an Intel-I5 3120m. I followed this tutorial:
