How to build a Hackintosh for coding

One thing I constantly see in posts like this are people who complain that this is difficult. Many years ago a bad stigma was created around the whole hackintosh community that hackintoshing was hard. Apple was stiff to try and plug holes to keep people from doing it, they had a strict set of rules around which hardware configurations where recognized by their software etc..

Today, that simply isn’t true. Not only has apple become more accepting of various hardware configurations, but the amazing guys who write the installation tools have equally become more adaptable to changes to each new iteration of OSX…err…macOS. In all actuality, hackintoshing brings the time required to create a hackintosh equal to that of building a PC.

So lets follow the guide of building a pc. Buy your parts. Find a computer to make a USB drive. Install the OS. Get some drivers/updates.

Now lets follow the hackintosh guide.

Buy your parts (http://www.tonymacx86.com/buyersguide/july/2016)

Find a mac to create Your USB(http://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/unibeast-install-os-x-el-capitan-on-any-supported-intel-based-pc.172672/)

Install the os.

Get some drivers/updates(http://www.tonymacx86.com/resources/multibeast-el-capitan-8-2-3.319/)

If you follow tonys recommeded builds. You actually dont even need to do the last step. It will work right out of the box. Specifically if you go with a gigabyte board as your base. Thats it! It literally takes me the same amount of time to build a mac or pc computer.

So for the skeptics out there. I know most of your opinion was developed years ago, and it was true. It required some major knowledge. However today, its pretty much as simple as creating a normal pc. Just follow the buyers guides(which has about as many purchasing options as you can imaging) and install. Its that simple! Give it a try!
