  1. Download macOS High Sierra. At the very beginning, you need to Download macOS High Sierra from App Store using your Apple ID on any Mac or functional computer running Mac Operating System. Launch App Store and click on the Feature tab then look at the right-hand side for macOS High Sierra. Click on Download button and type your Apple.
  2. I made a Sierra Hackintosh USB with UniBeast choosing “Legacy”, and “Inject ATI”. My computer specs are as follows: Intel Core 2 Duo E8400 3.00GHz. 256GB SSD (completely empty) AMD Radeon R7 240 GPU. PCI Wireless card (I checked, it works with OSX) The computer itself is an HP Compaq DC7900 SFF.

After serveral years of studies and trial, I finally get a Hackintosh working with spared parts. I know the cost for a proper Mac Book Pro is far below my time cost, but it is really a great learning experience for me.

Before I start, here is my hardware list, I just purchase 2nd parts, with my old parts and my brother-in-law decomissioned parts.

Intel E3-1275 (Sandy Bridge)
Biostar B75S3E (B75 mATX board)
Asus GT1030 2GB
Crucial BX500 240G SSD

Basically it covers the following major steps. I use Hackintosh Zone High Sierra for installation.

6. Nvidia Web Drivers
Nvidia Web Driver is provided by nVidia (not Apple) to drive the latest GeForce series graphics card. Unfortunate, it supports only up to High Sierra, no Majove or Catalina. We could download here. It has to match with your MacOS version, including sub-version and patch level

7. APFS and noatime mount options
APFS is the latest file system of MacOS which support SSD Trim command. In the Niresh Hackintosh Disc, it doesn’t come with the drivers, which I cannot install MacOS on my SSD. Therefore, I need to make conversion after installation. Luckily, the installation is very simple.
1. Boot into recovery mode
2. Unmount the Disk
3. Edit => Convert to APFS
In unix file system, it has a function named atime, which will log the time for every file access. It is no big deal in Magnetic hard disk, however, it is a matter for SSD as it hugely increase the wearing of SSD. Furthermore, because it saves a write operation, the disk will also perform slightly faster, especially for compiling program

2. Reboot, check with “mount”

8. Homebrew, https://brew.sh/
/usr/bin/ruby -e “$(curl -fsSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Homebrew/install/master/install)”

There are some pitfall which I have encountered, the best recommendation is still strictly follow the tonymacx86 purchase list, and don’t even derivate a single model from it.

The pitfall are as followed.

1. Sandy Bridge CPU E3 1275 iGPU is HD P3000 which has a different hardware device ID with a standard Sandy Bridge HD3000. Inject Intel and FakeIntelGPU may work, but fail due to point 2
2. Mix of Sandy Bridge CPU + Ivy Bridge Mainboard will cause issue. Apple treats mainboard as the platform, which you need to match up with CPU and iGPU by configuration SMIBIOS. I cannot get the iGPU working and need to use a GT1030 card
3. MacOS is not happy with nVidia Maxwell and Pascal GPU out of the box, that’s the 9xx and 10xx family. They cannot run on Mojave OR Catalina right now. For High Sierra, nVidia has provide official Drivers named Nvidia Web Driver, You need to pick the right version against your current Mac Version, 10.13.0 has different driver from 10.13.6.
4. Picking a Kelper Nvidia GPU is a MUST for Mojave or Catalina. Comments from forum suggest RX570. I am wondering if a RX460 from China, which is the salvage of Crypto Mining Machine is a good deal
4. You MUST go to Recovery Mode and UNMOUNT the system volume to convert the primary partition to APFS
5. Don’t need to install the NullCPUManagement.kext. The AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement.kext should be fine and working with the Clover C-State parameters
