I've got a few old PCs knocking about i3 or i5 I think, the PCs are a few years old and only about 4gb ram (I can upgrade as home some spare ram)
been looking on Tonymacx86 site about creating a hackintosh
Has anyone done this?
I have made them in the past and to be honest it’s far easier to just use VMware in a windows host to run macOS. Does the hardware support virtualisation? You can usually see it in the BIOS or processor specs on the intel site. What was it you wanted to use it for?
Hi, many thanks. Well, it's related to my other post in VIP, but I just want to try and run some software to test it.
I tried a Virtualbox install but couldn't get it to run. I'll look into VMware setups.
VMWare workstation, I think you need to install a patch for macOS VMs but easy to do and readily available. If you needed Mac only then a hackintosh may be better, been years since I last played with one so it might be a lot more solid now but back then kexts could be problematic to get for some hardware.
ive ran an i3 hackintosh with 8gb of ram for about 8years and not had a single problem with it, follow the tonymac guide and grab the kexts you need and itll be easy to set up and get running, ive not installed Catalina on it yet but thats because everything is working but on my macbook air some applications are flakey on Catalina
Just the fact that some geniuses were laughed at does not imply that all who are laughed at are geniuses. They laughed at Columbus, they laughed at Fulton, they laughed at the Wright brothers. But they also laughed at Bozo the Clown.
