    My thoughts on converting my Hackintosh to OpenCore (and then to Big Sur!)

    I read some stuff about that... it feels like they're trying to "incorporate" OpenCore into Clover for the sole reason of trying to keep Clover relevant. When I built my first Hackintosh, I don't recall ever seeing a universal guide for Clover. When it came to Clover, when starting for the...

    My thoughts on converting my Hackintosh to OpenCore (and then to Big Sur!)

    Another update... yesterday when I woke up, I decided that it was time. I cloned and Time Machined my current, working Catalina hard drive, then I started from scratch (just to retrace my steps from my test run) and built a new OpenCore-based Big Sur USB installer. Later in the evening with the...

    MacOS + Windows 10, Plausible Idea?

    ...speaking of sarcasm :unsure: LOL Zero intent. Zero sarcasm. Basically all I was saying there was: "Sometimes, shit just happens." :cool: See... overthinking. It's good you're doing a lot of research on the topic and gathering info, but at some point, you're just going to have to commit...

    MacOS + Windows 10, Plausible Idea?

    That build @Edhawk linked uses NVMe SSds, not PCIe. That said: - In the past, whole computers have melted or caught on fire. - In the past, mobile phones have melted or caught on fire. - In the past, cars have melted or caught on fire. I bet you still use them though. Don't be paranoid. If...

    MacOS + Windows 10, Plausible Idea?

    IMO for Clover-based, the build lists you'll see online are only listed online because they got it to work. There are many Clover-based builds available to reference when picking and choosing your own build components. I built my first Hackintosh based on someone else's successful build. I...

    My thoughts on converting my Hackintosh to OpenCore (and then to Big Sur!)

    So a little update... I've delayed committing to wiping my main NVMe drive to do a clean, fresh install of Big Sur for a moment. Granted, I've already backed up all of my data from my current Catalina install, I've cloned my Catalina drive as a backup as well, and I've successfully installed Big...

    MacOS + Windows 10, Plausible Idea?

    This is how my current build is set up, as you described. Right now I have MacOS Catalina on my main SSD (daily use) and Windows 10 on a secondary SSD (for some gaming). I use Parallels in MacOS if I need to access Windows within, or I can dual boot natively into Windows 10. On top of that...

    My thoughts on converting my Hackintosh to OpenCore (and then to Big Sur!)

    DISCLAIMER: I have zero affiliation with OpenCore or the makers of OpenCore. It's been a while since I've updated anything here (considering the current global situation)... I hope everyone is being safe and doing well. Just wanted to share a story with my experiences so far with OpenCore. For...

    [Success][Guide] Catalina Vanilla "Hackintosh Deluxe" Z370n WiFi / i5-8400 / RX-570 (FINAL)

    OpenCore testing with MacOS Big Sur 11.0 (teaser) It's been a while since I've updated anything here (considering the current global situation)... I hope everyone is being safe and doing well. Since I'm one of those who moved to "Work From Home" status, I found myself using my Hackintosh more...

    [GUIDE] HOW-TO: Create a MacOS Catalina 10.15.0 USB Installer Drive w/Clover

    Nowhere in this thread mentions using "Transmac" so you must be confused, or you're bad at following instructions.

    [Success][Guide] Catalina Vanilla "Hackintosh Deluxe" Z370n WiFi / i5-8400 / RX-570 (FINAL)

    10/07/19 - UPDATE TO 10.15 + Discreet Video Card Installed: Apple released a new MacOS version on October 7th 2019 named "Catalina". Updating to this version went pretty smooth on my Hackintosh - primarily because of already having my system-specific USBMap.kext (see my post #79 in this thread...

    I basically did the same steps as with Mojave, see my next "official" build post (working on it now)

    [Success][Guide] Catalina Vanilla "Hackintosh Deluxe" Z370n WiFi / i5-8400 / RX-570 (FINAL)

    This build thread is based on a Gigabyte z370n WiFi. If you're using a different motherboard then I can't really help you.

    I don't know why you are avoiding Catalina, but I already answered this in my last reply: Option B is always better, as it is a more permanent solution. It's a BIOS setting so you can change it as much as you want before or after install. Will there be issues? I don't know, I don't switch the...
