Hackintosh

Postby DrTeeth » Thu Jan 11, 2018 10:06 am

Hi,

Has anybody made a Hackintosh using BIBM? Initially, I hope to install
the OS in VirtualBox, but would ideally like to install it into a
primary partition on my MBR disk. I have already downloaded the
necessary OS files (Niresh images) and would just like to liaise with
a fellow BIBM users who has achieved this.

years ago it wasn't uncommon, with the new gpt requirement it may not work
out well.

Many of the images have been patched so that the install will work and
go smoothly. It should be just as easy as installing Windows.

All I really need to know is:-
1) Are there any differences between a windows install and the OS X
install?
and
2) What type of partition should be created?

The install into a VirtualBox machine did not work as it stalled at
approx 80% with 2 minutes to go. I would ideally like to have
completed that successfully as it should show up anything that could
surprise/panic me.

Ping TBU!

Can you please answer the above 2 questions? Once I have that
information, I should be able to have a go at installing it on my HD.

Thanks

I think the new versions are UEFI only.

The old one, I think it was something like 0xAF

They have been hacked to be installable on MBR.
