How-to Make a Clover Hackintosh Bootloader

What’s Needed:

In this tutorial we will be creating the bootloader that will allow you to run the macOS installer that will also be created in this guide onto your to-be Hackintosh. This will be created using a flash drive that needs to be 8GB or larger in size so that it has enough space ton hold the Sierra or El Capitan installer files.

You’ll need to be running macOS in order to complete this guide. If you do not have a mac available for use, you can learn how to create a virtual machine on your computer before following this guide:
