I am not familiar with your hardware, so I will give you the basics of how to make an USB Installer to start with. If you're able to boot the installer, but it won't let you install macOS, then please report back with more information such as your system specifications and the errors you get.

If you are already on macOS, download El Capitan or Sierra from the App Store. 

Then there are two ways to make an USB installer:

  1. By using macpwn (easiest way)
    For El Capitan: download link
    For Sierra: download link
    You can find a full guide of how to do it for El Capitan here and for Sierra here
  2. By making it yourself 
    1. Open Terminal
    2. write "defaults write AppleShowAllFiles YES killall Finder" without the quotation marks and press enter
    3. Go to Finder > Applications
    4. Right-click on the macOS installer app > Show Contents
    5. Navigate to Contents > SharedSupport and mount InstallESD.dmg
    6. Inside the mounted InstallESD, mount BaseSystem.dmg
    7. If you haven't already, plug your USB stick in
    8. Open Disk Utility and restore BaseSystem.dmg to your USB stick
      click on your USB partition, choose 'restore' and choose 'OS X Base System' as source
    9. Open your USB in Finder and navigate to System > Installation and delete the 'Packages' symlink
    10. Go back to your mounted InstallESD.dmg and copy the Packages folder to the System > Installation directory on your USB stick
    11. Again, go back to your mounted InstallESD.dmg and copy "BaseSystem.dmg", "BaseSystem.chunklist", "AppleDiagnostics.dmg" and "AppleDiagnostics.chunklist” to the root directory of your USB installer
    12. Extract the kernel (in case you get a kernel not found error upon boot)
      1. Download Pacifist
      2. Navigate to your Packages folder, right click on 'Essentials.pkg' and chose 'Open with > Pacifist'
      3. Within Pacifist, navigate to System > Library > Kernels
      4. Highlight The 'Kernels' Folder and extract it to Your USB > System > Library
    13. Download your preferred bootloader (I am using Enoch rev2839, which is based on Chameleon)
      Note: If you are using Chameleon/Enoch, make sure that you enable Kernel Patch KernelBooter_Kexts
    14. Install the bootloader to your USB stick
    15. Disable SIP (System Integrity Protection)
      1. Chameleon/Enoch
        Open your /Extra/org.chameleon.Boot.plist and add this entry:
      2. Clover
        Open your Clover config.plist and add this entry:

        note: you can use any of these values: 0x3 (SIP partially disabled, Loads unsigned kexts), 0x67 (SIP completely disabled)
    16. Download fakeSMC and  NullCPUPowerManagement kexts and put them on your USB > Library > Extensions
    17. Reboot your laptop, enter your BIOS and if available, turn off vt-d and set HPET to 64-bit
    18. Boot from your USB stick, and use bootflags -v -f

With El Capitan, the installer gave me an error, saying that it was already installed on my system, which obviously was not the case. I fixed that by putting my smbios.plist (imac10,1) in the /Extra/ folder on my USB.

If you are not on an Mac/Hackintosh already, things get a little more difficult. If you could get yourself a copy of El Capitan / Sierra, you can however do it from Windows too, using TransMac.

    • hi   ok I have been struggling with this for the past 2 weeks. I have installed and uninstalled Sierra more times than I can count and its been driving me potty .... have only cracked it today.  what you need to do is download create a vanilla usb stick with Sierra.  in order to do this I downloaded from the distroes  and created a usb stick.  the installed Yosemite once I was in Yosemite  ( the gfx work in this disto) I downloaded a copy of Sierra from the store..  you will have to search the net for the direct link.. I then created a bootable Sierra usb stick using unit beast, I selected legacy boot loader with no gfx injected. I then installed Sierra from this. once Sierra is installed boot from the usb and select your installed Sierra. iff all goes well you should have a working Sierra install with the gfx acceleration working.  I think the problem is with the type of Mac that Sierra thinks it is with everything working my system info is showing a iMac 27" 14.2 .  I have tried installing a boot loader on the main drive with no success so as a workaround you will have to use your usb stick. pics below of my system info  I hope this helped. I also just noticed whilst I was trying to get thing working I copied a modified andradeonx4000.kext into the root drive of the Sierra stick. I don't know if this has had any effect on the install might be worth doing the same thing andy
    • Hello, I installed macOS High Sierra 10.13 on my Windows laptop. I installed them so I could dual boot them. It took me 2 day's to perfectionize the macOS because of the .kext files. All the Kext files went good except for graphic and Synaptics. If I install Synaptics, I can move the mouse but it zooms in and it gets stuck back into the corners. So I only installed Generic Touch Pad driver and that works fine. 

      Anyhow I thought everything was perfect until I opened Safari yesterday which came with glitches it stutters when scrolling. It's something like this only worse. I searched a lot but I found nothing on AMD drivers for my laptop. I really like this macOS, and I want it to be perfect. Is that possible? Maybe with another macOS type/version? O'yeah, when I log in, the vertical lines appear as in the youtube video is that normal or is that because I don't have an graphic driver installed? I really hope on some positive answers, and I thank everyone for his time to read and react on this. Thank you

    • Hello, I got macOS Sierra to work on my vostro 230 and I need to find drivers.
