Hackintosh updating to 10 6 3

What better way to do that than from the safe confines of your existing operating system and a virtual machine? That doesn’t mean AMD users are completely out of luck though.This way, you can run mac OS on Windows, which is perfect when you want to use Mac-only apps on Windows. You can still install mac OS High Sierra in a virtual machine.These may not be the same incompatible kext files you have (Virtual Box and Evernote also seem to be offenders), but hopefully sets you on the right track. Once again my El Capitan upgrade didn’t go very smoothly.Same as last time, my laptop failed to reboot after the install seemed to complete, however this time there were even fewer clues – no crash logs, etc.I did keep a backup and my system has been stable since I moved them – note that you cannot modify the `/System` path so you will need to back them up somewhere else.ls -lat /Volumes/Macintosh HD/Library/Extensions System Disabled total 0 drwxr-xr-x 71 root wheel 2414 Jul 28 .. drwxr-xr-x 3 root wheel 102 Nov 15 2014 No drwxr-xr-x 3 root wheel 102 Jul 8 2013 Energy drwxr-xr-x 3 root wheel 102 Jun 6 2013 drwxr-xr-x 3 root wheel 102 Apr 19 2013 Pda Net drwxr-xr-x 3 root wheel 102 Oct 26 2012 hp_Inkjet7_io_drwxr-xr-x 3 root wheel 102 Oct 26 2012 hp_Deskjet_io_drwxr-xr-x 3 root wheel 102 Aug 8 2012 FTDIUSBSerial drwxr-xr-x 3 root wheel 102 Jun 29 2012 hp_fax_drwxr-xr-x 3 root wheel 102 May 22 2012 JMicron drwxr-xr-x 3 root wheel 102 May 18 2012 drwxr-xr-x 3 root wheel 102 Mar 7 2012 Si Labs drwxr-xr-x 3 root wheel 102 Oct 12 2011 Mind drwxr-xr-x 3 root wheel 102 Aug 17 2011 LGEMobile Solution drwxr-xr-x 3 root wheel 102 Aug 17 2011 PTRay drwxr-xr-x 3 root wheel 102 Aug 17 2011 drwxr-xr-x 3 root wheel 102 Aug 17 2011 drwxr-xr-x 3 root wheel 102 Aug 17 2011 drwxr-xr-x 3 root wheel 102 Aug 17 2011 Novatel Wireless drwxr-xr-x 3 root wheel 102 Aug 17 2011 drwxr-xr-x 3 root wheel 102 Aug 17 2011 Sierra Dev drwxr-xr-x 3 root wheel 102 Aug 17 2011 Sierra drwxr-xr-x 3 root wheel 102 Aug 17 2011 Sierra drwxr-xr-x 3 root wheel 102 Aug 17 2011 Sierra drwxr-xr-x 3 root wheel 102 Aug 17 2011 SMSIWireless drwxr-xr-x 3 root wheel 102 Nov 21 2010 drwxr-xr-x 3 root wheel 102 Sep 25 2010 Huawei Data Card drwxr-xr-x 3 root wheel 102 Oct 28 2007 USBExpress Card Cant Wake_drwxr-xr-x 3 root wheel 102 Jun 6 2007 Remote Control.If you have renamed your hard drive to something other than “Macintosh HD” use the new name in the following commands.

I don’t use the software/hardware related to these kexts so I just left them all off, I’m not sure which was the actual culprit(s).

If they are found they are moved into a directory named “/Volumes/Macintosh\ HD/Library/Extensions Disabled/” so that they will not be loaded when you reboot.

Make sure that your hard drive is named correctly in the commands, by default it’s “Macintosh HD” unless it was changed.

It has its quirks and annoyances, but what operating system doesn’t?

Even if you’re beholden to Microsoft and Windows 10, you can still shop around. However, at the time of writing, there is no AMD mac OS Mojave build available to those without an existing AMD-based mac OS installation.
