Hi everyone, I have this old laptop on which I wanted to experiment a little and I decided to try hackintosh. Do you think it is possible? or is it better not to waste too much time? Thank you.

Here are the hardware specifications:

CPU: Intel® Core ™ i5-520M processor

GPU: Intel HD Graphics

Mouse and Keyboard: PS / 2

Audio: IDT 92HD75B3X5

Network: Broadcom 802.11n / 82577LC Gigabit

Looking a little long in the tooth but why not boot into a live linux distro, open a terminal and type lspci -k, save the results to a text file, and post your hardware specs.

This would be fine as a Hackintosh as long as your built-in LCD screen is LVDS, not eDP. Check out the Bible about 1st gen Intel HD graphics to find out. But note that, like subsequent HD3000 graphics, 1st gen Intel HD graphics were last officially supported in High Sierra. In Mojave and Catalina, you'll have to patch macOS to obtain graphics acceleration (if screen is LVDS of course). Can't say if new patches for Big Sur were fully finalised or not but I believe they may have been so in recent OCLP patcher version.

 

If your built-in LCD screen is eDP, don't waste your time, you'd quickly find that OS X/macOS is rather unusable without full graphics acceleration.
