Hi, I'm trying to learn hackintosh and would love to know if my current build could work with Catalina or other versions.

MotherboardGigabyte H410M H 

Nvidia GTX 1650-руб 

Intel Core i5-10400F

Samsung 860 Evo 250GB

Seagate Barracuda 4TB 

Kingston HyperX DDR4 2666 C16 2x16GB

I also have Maono Fairy microphone

and a Bluetooth usb

Thanks for any help!

 

Note: I tried Catalina, Mojave and High Sierra but I'm stuck on boot every time.

Answer is no.

 

Comet Lake i5-10400F does not appear to have any iGPU and Turing nVidia cards such as your GTX 1650 are not supported at all. So, unless you put a graphics card compatible with macOS Catalina/Big Sur in that desktop, you're screwed. Sorry.

Comet Lake CPUs are only officially supported from Catalina 10.15.3 so don't waste your time with Mojave or High Sierra.

That's my bad, thanks for the reply! I built this PC with Windows/Linux  in mind. But I'm still not satisfied with how Windows 10 works and looks, while using Linux is just not enough apps-wise for me. That's why I'm thinking of learning hackintosh - I think the best start is buy the parts recommended and build a PC again.

Not quite... The nVidia Turing card will be wasted in a Hackintosh so it'd be much better to replace it by a supported AMD model; I'd do that rather than change CPU. The i5-10400F is perfectly usable as Hackintosh CPU on the other hand and I would not recommend replacing it by a Comet Lake with iGPU given the reported issues with CML iGPUs even though these are meant too be supported. I think it wise to go for the safest and guaranteed choices, i.e. change of graphics card.

In this crypto-driven market, I do not even consider options which involve getting a dGPU…

But I stand corrected: My advice, in full, is to get an iX-10xxx 10th generation CPU (not 11th) with an iGPU—and ditch (or resell, or confine to Linux/Windows) the nVidia card.
