Hi there,

wanted to share with you all my experince.
It's been years that i wanted an perfectly running hackintosh but i never really had the time to follow any guide. In the past i always download premade EFI's but as you can imagine rarely i got them working (perfectly).
Yesterday in like 3 hours i managed to perfectly install Mac Os Catalina following Dortania Guide and to be honest it was pretty easy for me since i'm very pratical (i'm a programmer).
I tried to follow youtube guides but honestly speaking i found 99% of those video very irrelevant with people that not knowing what to do and doing thing without explaining you why you have to download this or that.
Had some troubles finding Big Sur but i managed to understand that if i don't have a mac in hand i cannot download an recovery using Gibmacos so i installed catalina instead for an instant upgrade soon after.
Had black screen problem but with a little messing with bios in the "port" settings i managed to get rid of that and now i have a perfectly and smooth running Big Sur, no issues at all in any task.
You only need a bit of patience and you will make it work for you :)
Tell me if someone want my EFI as reference but nothing special on it.
Thank you all!!!

I have an MSI 550 Tomahawk with a Ryzen 3900X with macOS Catalina, but when I try to upgrade to macOS Big Sur it will stop at the verbose and I can't upgrade. I've tried installing zero Big Sur and I've tried to install from scratch Big Sur and the same thing happens, I can not enter the installation menu, despite going perfectly with macOS Catalina.

Were you successful? I am brand new to Hackintosh and want to attempt my first build. I am not a programmer...just an enthusiast and a recovering mac user! I have an MSI B550m-vdh wifi with Ryzen 3950x, 16g ballistix memory, 1tb Evo m.2 with a 500gb ssd for MacOs. I am trying to decide on Catalina or Big Sur and want to know the pitfalls and ease of install. Any advice?
