  1. First of all, I am not very good at understanding questions people ask me, so sorry if this doesn't look like an answer ;-; The Hackintosh Sierra file comes in a torrent, so I'm sure you can download it that way. And, assuming you're using VMWare, if you enable the file sharing option, you can do that. Are you trying to upgrade a vm? What exactly are you trying to do, anyway? (Also, please tell me how you managed to get the internet working in a vm! It's not working for the life of me.)
  2. After I went through the terrible, horrible pain that came with installing Niresh's Sierra Zone distro (I say it was bad because it was a real pain diagnosing problems by myself, without internet), I played around with the OS for a bit and discovered two things that were a little out of place. Specs: Intel Corporation Wireless (7265) Intel i5 7th gen CPU (7200U) Intel Integrated Graphics (620) (I can't find my motherboard ;-;) This is the laptop. (Sort of?) >>> Internet doesn't work. I know that macOS doesn't exactly support Intel (especially in wireless), but I found a kext that's a work in progress here. I was wondering if anybody knows about the progress for this kext, and if anybody can possibly pick it up if it's abandoned? I really don't want to replace my WiFi card (I don't have the money). I do want to point out that the OS shows the Bluetooth working, although I can't be certain, because I haven't tried connecting anything. >>>Graphical glitches. When I boot up the OS, the Apple logo screen and the login screen both have screen glitching. Kind of like those old television sets that have the weird black lines that go up and down a bunch, but they don't move, and they're white. There's also much smaller graphical errors such as in Safari, although I don't really mind those too much. Does anybody know if there's a fix for this? It's a little bit annoying, and I, for one, don't like imperfections. Oh, and the touchscreen doesn't work, but I don't really care about that. I sorta broke the screen anyway... hehehe. It's very much appreciated!
  3. Can’t boot Windows

    I had an issue very similar to this actually. I'm going to assume you are using an EFI motherboard? Before you go through with any of this, please let me know if you have any other operating systems, hard drives, or if you have BIOS instead of UEFI. When I installed macOS Sierra onto my laptop, it decided to overwrite the ESP partition. I'm not 100% sure why that is, but that's what happened. I had to download the Windows 10 installer onto a USB, and use the installer to re-download the boot files for Windows. If you go into there, you can access the Command Prompt and run these commands. (It should work, but every PC is different.) >diskpart >sel vol 0 >list vol Here, find your ESP and it's corresponding number. >sel vol (number) >assign letter=(whatever letter you want, as long as it's not being used) >exit >cd /d (letter of drive):/EFI ---> Use a command to list what is in the EFI folder. If there's a folder called "Microsoft", go into it, and make sure there are files in there. Most likely there isn't, though. ---> If there is a Microsoft folder, cd into /EFI/Microsoft/Boot, and type: >bootrec /FixBoot ---> If there is no folder, use mkdir to create the Microsoft folder, and then the Boot folder within that one. Then type: >bcdboot c:\Windows /l en-us /s (letter of drive you want to boot from, AKA the Windows drive): All Once that's done, you should be able to just go into Clover settings after a reboot, and it should show another Windows option. Unfortunately, I had 2 of these drives. I believe this is Clover detecting the recovery drives, as I have an HP laptop. Let me know if this works (reference)
