Hey pals!

Don't know if this is the right place to post this lol, but would like to know if someone here can help me out turning out my PC into a Hackintosh.

I KNOW is a complicated thing and the process will change and differ hardware to hardware, but, I believe that providing all the specs and hardware name of the components of my PC will do the trick, and also, I just need help creating the USB stick software (Getting the drivers and utilities) then I can follow the process installation.

Of course, will be $ involved :p

If this is a crazy thing, just let me know and will delete lol.

Do you already have the PC or yet to build it?
If you do already have one then what is your spec?

Your graphics card is not supported on macOS. You will need at least a rx 560 for AMD based cards. There are older Nvidia cards that would work as well, but if you want to run the newer macOS I would stick to AMD.

Unless your RX 550 is a rebranded RX 560 with either the Polaris or Baffin core then it'll work if you fake the device ID to 0x67FF

This is my personal opinion, as someone who does tech support, I would strongly recommend against having someone ELSE building a Hackintosh for you.

If you plan to run a Hackintosh system (which is very rewarding, don't get me wrong) you need to understand how it works and what to do when it doesn't. When everything is working, it is amazing, but when it doesn't work, it can be a nightmare.. and that does happen.

So, invest the time in building it yourself. You will learn more about your computer, and how BIOS, bootloaders, and software work together and end up with a kick ass Mac as a result. Once you have made a few attempts at it, but still are hitting walls, this forum is an amazing resource for assistance. You just need to do a bit of homework first. Good luck on your build!

PS. (include here the usual caveat about using Hackintosh computers for production work... blah, blah, blah... )
