Can I make my machine a Hackintosh?

Question

Hi All,

 

I tried to figure out this by my own but I couldn't due to my low level of experience when it comes to apple products or Hackintosh! As my job requires me to develop iOS applications I though about giving Hackintosh a try.

 

Currently I'm using a windows 8.1 workstation with below specs:

 

CPU: Intel 4770k

Motherboard: Asus Sabertooth Z87

Ram: 32GB

GPU: GTX 780

Main Storage: 256GB SSD

Secondary Storage: 2x 2TB Harddrisk

 

What I need is to be able to keep my current setup intact, but be able to dual boot either into Windows or OSX.

 

I would really appreciate a step-by-step guidance as previously mentioned, I'm new to these things.

 

Thanks in advanced.

The hardware specs you gave are compatible, but do you have a blank HDD? You won't be able to dual-boot unless you have an empty partition or empty HDD/SDD because Windows 8 BSOD's if you re-size the system partition.

 

Other than that, you are good to go, Good Luck! ;)

 

I recommend starting out with this distro, it is easy to use, comes with it's own step by step instructions, and completely supports your hardware.

I have already installed the OS, everything is running smoothly. the only thing missing here is that I'm only accessing the MacOS with the Clover USB, Can I make it permanent?

I'm facing allot of issues since writing the last post.

 

Now I only have 1 monitor is working, the other isn't recognised.

Sound isn't working suddenly.

 

all were working smoothly before, but I don't know the issue  now.

I don't know the answer to the other problems, but have you checked your Voodoo sound settings? maybe you accidentally turned sound off.

    • Hello,
      On High Sierra 10.13.1 under VMWare.
      I install Final Cut Pro 10.4 when running got this error:
      This graphics configuration does not support hardware acceleration, which is required to run Final Cut Pro.
      My GPU is: AMD Radeon R7 240 but show on Hachintosh About : Graphics: Display 128 MB. Thank you for help.
    • I got same error 4 years later. On High Sierra. What's the solution? What you suggested doesn't work. Why does this happen? Any ideas?
    • Hi there. I have the exact laptop and was able to install MacOS HS on it and boot up. I followed tonymaxx086 instructions but.... the following are NOT working as yet.... 1) Keyboard and trackpad (although usb kb and mouse work)
      2) Backlite control (screen appears to be in battery mode - dimmed)
      3) Sound
      4) Wifi 
      5) battery? I am able to access the internet and browse ok using Safari. I want to resolve #1 and 2 before I resolve the rest, but I am having an issue to determine what kexts to inject. There is no cross reference to this MOBO and I am not familiar with it. Can someone point me in the right direction? Many thanks....
