I have an old PC with Windows 10 and Ubuntu 18.04 installed, frustrated with Macbook Pro thermal performance and its fan's noise, hook up an SSD and try installing the Hackintosh

I tried installing OSX Mojave first, everything works except the driver for Nvidia 1080ti, since not suitable for my use case ( 1440p and 165Hz iterm2 and visual studio code :cool:), i tried the High Sierra

I only followed https://hackintosher.com/guides/high-sierra-install-full-guide/ and https://hackintosher.com/guides/properly-install-nvidia-drivers-high-sierra-10-13/ , everything works, bluetooth and wifi via USB dongle also works

The first version, all above i installed in MSI z97 Gaming 5 which already has one broken RAM channel, success.
Then i replace them used Gigabyte Gaming 7 motherboard and team elite 4x8Gb RAM, reset the motherboard setting to default, seamless motherboard migration working.

Already 2 months now stable and no issue, no crash whatsoever, coding like a champ, and again.. thank you
