Explanation of installing the Hackintosh



We are not responsible for what happens on your device during and after installing the Hackintosh.


  1. Know the specifications of your device:

    • Knowing the type and generation of the processor
    • Know the type of graphics cards
    • Know the full name of your device if it is not collected
    • Know the type of Ethernet network card
    • Know the type of Wi-Fi and Bluetooth card if you plan to use it
    • Know your storage devices (SSD or normal hard disk, what is its name etc.)
    • Program hwinfo will help you to find out all these details about your device.
  2. Time

    Hackintosh is not a normal system. If you are a busy person, you have a job and your time is limited. We do not recommend installing the Hackintosh, because it will take much more of your time than other systems. It is not recommended to use the Hackintosh as a serious system for important work, because it is less stable than Windows.

  3. USB size at least 16 GB

In this explanation will prove to raw Mac (vanilla) on processors intel and AMD

But what does it mean raw? Raw means that the system is original and has not been modified at all and the modification is in the EFI section dedicated to booting, the main section of the Mac system in the Hackintosh is identical to the one in the original Macs.

the conditions

There will be conditions for your device to be supported by Hackintosh Arabic:



If your processor is Intel, it must be from the third generation or above . How do you know your therapist any generation? Using hwinfo or Windows Find About Your PC or about this computer

In the processor section, the first number after the name of the processor must be more than 2, meaning core i7-4790k , core i3 6100, or Core i5 3600, or even Core i9 9900k. If the first number is less than 3 such as core i7 2700k, we do not provide assistance to it. It does not mean that it is impossible to install the Hackintosh on it, but it is advisable to change the device because it is old.

Difference between ice lake and comet lake

In the 10th generation, Intel used two different architectures under the same name.

Ice lake and Comet lake are completely different processors, so the SSDT, the Konnect and other things in the Hackintosh differ greatly. How do you differentiate between them? If your processor number contains the letter G then it is ice lake eg Core i7-1068NG7


If you have an AMD processor, we will only support RYZEN series processors on desktop computers only

The Hackintosh can be installed on FX-class processors, for example, but it is outdated and does not contain most of the modern features.

It is true that AMD processors improve their support on the Hackintosh due to the AMDOSX team's serious work on patches for the Mac system, but there are still some things that do not work, such as:

  • Stability of connection of USB devices, especially with the headphones
  • Virtual systems
  • There is no support for memfast technology, so Adobe programs need to be modified to work
  • Blender has problems with stability
  • Da Vinci program does not work properly

If your use of the system is simple, then most of these problems will not concern you, but this makes the system unusable for many people. If you want to experience a full Hackintosh, use Intel processors.


As for the RAM, your device must contain at least 4 GB RAM, but the actual limit is 8 GB RAM, which Apple recommends for the latest version of the Mac.

Graphics card :

As for the separate graphics cards in the laptops that are not supported, the internal card (intel) will be used for the Mac. There have been successful attempts to activate the separate cards in the laptops, but it is not certain for all devices.

For desktop computers, AMD cards are the best option because they are supported directly by the system. Stay away from XFX cards because they sometimes face some problems.

List of some supported Nvidia cards on macOS Big Sur 11

GT 730GTX Titan Black | GK 110K420 framework
GT 720GTX Titan ZK600 framework

-GTX 670K6000 framework
-GTX 660 TiNVS510 board
-GTX 650 Ti-
-GTX 645 (Fermi)-

The cards category RTX20xx and GTX16xx is fully supported

The gtx745-10xx cards are supported in High sierra only because this is the latest version that Apple has allowed Vidia to raise the tariffs.

In general, for the Hackintosh, it is recommended to use AMD cards for direct support from the system.

Intel Integrated Cards

For Intel cards, most cards are supported from the third to the tenth generation

Except some cards like

  • HD 2500
  • HD4400 (needs modified ID)
  • hd610

The type of storage device

If you want to install the system on a hard disk, an important tip, try the system will be bad and slow, especially on the big sur Mac. It has become designed for SSD in general. This applies to most systems except for some Linux distributions that are designed to be fast.

Shortcuts in the world of Hackintosh

These shortcuts are used within the world of Hackintosh, so we explain them to new people here

Open Core (opencore): It is a bootloader, the bootloader is the program responsible for booting the system, Mac devices have a program dedicated to booting the Mac system, for a normal computer we will need OpenCore to boot. It is also responsible for introducing the kexts, patches, and many other tasks.

Previously, we used a clover as a boot loader for the Hackintosh, but OpenCore is much better in the speed of the boot and its support for the advantages of the system and the way to add the kits to the boot process, in addition to that the chance of a clover to support Big Secret is small.

Kernel (Kernel) : It is the core of every computer operating system. It connects software and computer hardware.

Kernel Bank (Kernel panic): Abbreviated as KP, which is a failure to boot the system and suspend the device at the start-up stage, when you put v- and the script stops moving without taking off. This is the KP

Alkixt (kext): Meaning of the word "kext" is an abbreviation for Kernel extenions or additions kernel definitions are short Alkikst system Mac

Alconvq (config.plist): Is the file that tells open core what to do, based on an XML-like arrangement of HTML, which is one of the most important things in the Hackintosh.

Patch (patch): Patch is to modify the program so that it works as required, such as patches for amd processors, in order for it to work on the Mac system

Oup (OOB): It is an abbreviation of the word Out of the box, or it works directly without the need for any kind of modification

ICBA (ACPI(): It is an abbreviation for the word Advanced Configuration and Power Interface, and it is an open standard used by operating systems to identify computer parts and prepare them for use.

  • Files built on this standard are DSDT And SSDT
  • ACPI files prepared for use are in their format AML. She WHICH.
  • The source files ( not ready for use ) are inDSL.


This explanation focuses on the desktop computer, as for laptops, the steps will be the same for working the system, but for advanced definitions such as defining a touchpad or camera, for example, you will need a separate search

You Can see Config plist Laptop .

the support

We will provide support for this explanation only or any of the explanations found in the sources in Hackintosh , and we will not provide support for modified versions such asZone And ready copies such asOlarilaWe will also avoid Tony Mac programs ( unibeast and multibeast ) as much as possible because they are closed source and lack of some basic things in the tunnel that may lead to blocking the iCloud account associated with the Hackintosh and other defects .
