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.

    • I booted from the USB, selected "Yosemite zone", but this brings me back to the original problem. It is freezing on the hackintosh logo. Is there any way to solve this.
    • Well, the pkg is beginning to install High Sierra on my SSD, but then stops with the error code "could not be installed on this computer" 
    • I followed your tutorials which seems to be 1000% easy as its usually around the same as TonyMac, except your installs requires less to do and youve done most of the work too the package which makes it installing for us very easy. Now, the pic below shows a whole bunch of errors and I dont know why. Ive searched these forums and just like the title here, there is none which is odd, because from your tutorials, this shouldnt happen and it seems no one else is running into this problem, HOWEVER, if they did post something like this, Im 1, looking for the fix on high sierra, not sierra or tammy or roger or lutherin, 2 they need to check their titles again because its not helping anyone. I will say I did try installing Sierra Hackintish Zone version and it works all the way up to right after it installs, it tells me "it cannot be installed on this computer", SO....sigh, idk       So, to conclude, I do appreciate the devs here and much respect. Thanks for doing this. But guys, please help a bruh out and tell me how to fix this. Im using windows 10 as my main so do not tell me to go to do nothing on a mac, its the whole point of me coming here is to hackintosh. I do follow instructions fairly           well consider I teach Programming to the Military. My god bless this post and.....my soul too tbh <3       
    • Hello, I want to know what I have to do to install Kexts, use clover configurator, install bootloader, change resolution and how to use multibeast according to my hardware. I'm new to this mac configuration process. For now my hackintosh is pure, with no driver installed wifi, ethernet, graphics etc .. Sometimes when I start hackinstosh gives the Kernel Panic and stops loading on the apple screen, but I reboot and load normally. And also after a few minutes using the macOS it freezes the screen. I used the Hackintosh Zone Niresh Sierra because it was the only one that successfully installed on my notebook. My hardware is: Notebook Samsung Expert x23 Intel HD Graphics 5500 I5-5200U Processor Nvidia Geforce 910M 2GB 8 GB RAM HDD 1TB Bluetooth
