Could you be awesome and check my build plans + answer some questions? Thanks much!!!

Recommended Posts

Hello, I am fairly new to this whole thing so I am going to dive right in.  Please pardon my lack of tech lingo.

 

I am an AVID mac user... Love it so much.  However do to budget and needs it is time for me to custom build a pc.  My goal is to have a computer that I can boot into windows, or OS X whenever I want. 

 

An important thing is I want to make sure having my pc being a macintosh will not hurt or risk and part of the Windows part of the computer.  I wish for it to be able to run just like (or close to) how it would without mac OS X also on it.

 

I guess I have two parts

 

Part A (My Build)

Here is the list: https://pcpartpicker.com/user/Cubby208/saved/#view=6smBD3

CPU: i7-5820k (6 core, superthread 3.3gHz
GPU: Gigabyte GeForce GTX 980 (GDDR5)
RAM: Crucial 16gb 2x8 (DDR4 2133) (288-pin dim)
Motherboard: MSI X99s  (intel x99)

HardDrive: (would get two ssd's and 1hdd (each of the ss'ds would be a boot drive, then the hdd would be partitioned) 

A. SSD  Samsung 850 EVO

B. HDD Segate Baracuda

Wireless: Rosewill  ( N900PCE)

Everything look good?

 

 

Part B (questions)

1.  Is their risk when doing hackingtosh? Can I permanently damage a part?

2. Do I need a sound card on my build for mac to use, or can it use the motherboards?

3.  I have heard sound doesn't quite work.... Is this true?

4.  What does it look like when you turn on your computer with windows and OS X on it?

5. Could running OS X on it cause overlocking? I am avoiding doing that at all costs.

6. In my OS X part would plugging in a compatible keyboard still work?

7. Good tutorials on this?

 

Thankyou so much guys! It means a lot that you look at this kind of stuff.  Hopefully someday I will be good enough at this to do the same.

    • Recently I tried to install Sierra Zone Hackintosh onto my Dell Inspiron N5567 Laptop. Installation was pretty fine. It booted up so well. The problems started during the post-installation process. Audio kext worked properly after some reinstalling. Wifi, Ethernet, and Bluetooth was unable to configure. When installing the graphics kext for Intel HD Graphics, it got installed properly and after restarting my laptop, there was a black screen after my Clover bootloader and it gets shut down.    My Laptop Specs: Dell Inspiron N5567 Intel Core i5 7200U 8GB DDR4 SODIMM RAM  AMD Radeon R7 M445 Graphics  2TB Hard Drive   The Drivers Include: Intel AC3265 Network/WiFi drivers Realtek ALC 3246 Audio Drivers Intel HD 620 Graphics Drivers AMD Radeon R7 M445 Graphics Drivers.   Please do consider this issue and come up with any solutions. I have checked youtube. No one has Hackintosh installed Hackintosh on the very same laptop series. Please help.

    •     Getting problem with installing macos Sierra on a dell latitude E5520, I tried the usb boot on a hp computer and there it worked. But on the dell i get the error as in the picture. What's can i do for fix this?
    • I've added every kext possible, Lilu, IntelGraphicsFixup, changed my config settings nothing so far has worked. I tried asking for help on the tony mac forums, but was banned the minute I sent the progress report they asked for, for software piracy. (which makes no sense because any hackintosh is software piracy anyway) but regardless of that, I still have very choppy graphics, and only 4 mb of VRAM, as shown in the about my mac screenshot I linked below. Can anyone help?
    • Hi, 
      I finally decided to install macOS high sierra on my laptop - Lenovo IdeaPad 720S 15IKB.
      It has:   i5-7300HQ, Intel HM175
      12GB DDR4 RAM
      A Samsung 256GB NVMe Drive
      GTX 1050 Ti With Max-Q   The first try did not boot so i had to use some args to get it to boot. The first problem arises due to the fact that all available usb slots are usb 3.1. The installer did not recognise my keyboard and trackpad and i had to install some kexts to get them working. Well, after i intalled the kexts, It was stuck in a boot loop. I was fed up and it was late so i decided to download hackintosh zone from niresh. I would install it later. Well, when i run hackintosh zone it gets stuck at the apple logo after loading. I ran it in verbose mode and it gets stuck in the following   [Date] localhost com.apple.xpc.launchd[1] <Error>: Host-level exception raised: pid = 541, thread = 0xbf1f, exception type = 0xd, codes = { 0 }, states = { 0 }
      busy timeout[0], (240s): 'AppleEFIRuntime'
      busy timeout[1], (240s): 'AppleEFIRuntime'
      busy timeout[2], (240s): 'AppleEFIRuntime'   Then the screen goes blank and it starts over. Any help is appreciated. Thanks!
