Hackintosh: Wrapup

Here’s the summary of my setup and what worked to get my Hackintosh up and running.

The Machine

  • Intel Core i5-3570 CPU 3.40GHz.
  • Biostar  H61MGV motherboard (MATX) –  American Megatrends Inc Aptio UEFI 2.3 BIOS
  • 8 GB DDR3 SDRAM (4gb 1600 and 4gb 1333)
  • Zotac Nvidia GTX 1050 Ti 2GB
  • Some random entry-level case
  • CoolerMaster Silencio 352 Mid-tower ATX/MATX case
  • 600w PSU

BIOS Setup

  • Optimized Settings (F3)
  • Disable Serial IO
  • SATA mode to ACHI

Boot Drive


And that’s all there was to it. It was a relatively simple setup, and knowing where to find all the pieces, along with which ones were appropriate would have helped the process take inside a few hours.

Hope this helps someone else going forward.
