This process of installing macOS High Sierra Hackintoh is supported on Intenl Pentium CPU and any Intel CPU till the 7th Generation Kabylake Processors.

Although the Intel Grapichs Card on the Motherboard work with most Hackintosh, it is always recommended by Hackintosh Gurus and Users to use an additional Graphics card which can be AMD or NVIDIA.

Precautions to Take Before Installing macOS High Sierra on Hackintosh.

ALERT:  Before we start first I need to warn you about few things. For installing macOS High Sierra on Hackintosh on Intel Pentium CPU, make sure that your hardware is Mac OS X compatible. I mean the CPU, Motherboard, Graphics Card and especially take precaution on the Wi-Fi and the Bluetooth because not all Wi-Fi or Bluetooth cards or adapters are Mac OS compatible.


Also, before installing macOS High Sierra on Hackintosh on Intel Pentium CPU make a full backup of your PC or Hackintosh (in case you are clean installing Mac OS Sierra). This installing method requires a full disk format or certain sections, that means all files will be deleted on the disk on which you are going to macOS High Sierra on Hackintosh.

Lets Start the Process of Installing Hackintosh macOS High Sierra on Intel Pentium CPU

Before we start the process of installing Hackintosh macOS Sierra, you would need to download some file. Here is the list of files that you would need to download :


File to Download
Unibeast & Multibeast
FakeCPIID ( Pentium )
NullCPUPowermanagement
NVidia kext
NVidia Web driver
NVidia CUDA driver
Clover Configurator
Clover Audio Script
Incase You Need My EFI & Config :
Pentium EFI Folder & config.plist


After you have downloaded these files You would need to create a folder and name it Pentium Post Install. Transfer all the files to this folder as you would need these files after the installation process is complete.
Step by Step Process to Install Hackintosh macOS High Sierra on Intel Pentium CPU -Step 1

Step 1: Create Bootable USB Drive For Installing macOS High Sierra on Hackintosh.

Let’s start to create the boot USB for macOS High Sierra. You will need access to Mac OS that can be a MacBook or some other Apple computer or PC running Mac OS. If you don’t have access to some Apple computer or PC which is running Mac OS X then you can do it on Windows System using Virtual Machine.
(Read This Article : How to Install MAC OS 10.12 Sierra on Windows PC using VMware Workstation)

You will need the following in order to create your boot USB:

  1. 16 Gb USB or more.
  2. Download macOS High Sierra install file from the App Store.
  3. Download the Unibeast
  4. Download Multibeast.
  5. If you are using Nvidia Maxell or Pascal Graphics card, then you need to download an Nvidia Web Drivers.
  6. If you are using any USB Wi-Fi then you will need to download the drivers from the manufacturer website

Before you start with creating the USB Installer, you need to erase the USB.

Now insert the USB and go to spotlight search and search for Disk Utility.

Process To Install macOS Sierra on Hackintosh - Step 5

Select your USB and Continue

Process To Install macOS Sierra on Hackintosh - Step 6

Select High Sierra and Continue

Process To Install macOS Sierra on Hackintosh - Step 7

Now in the Bootloader Configuration you will need to select the bootloader. If you are using newer UEFI system, then select the UEFI Boot Mode. If you are using Legacy system or older computer then select the Legacy Boot Mode and click Continue.

Process To Install macOS Sierra on Hackintosh - Step 8

In the Graphics Configuration, if you are using older 80 Radeon 4000 series then select the Inject ATI option. If your graphic card is newer, then skip this step. If you are using older Nvidia graphics like 8000 9000 200 400 and some 600 series then we can check Inject NVIDIA option.

If your graphic card is newer like Maxwell or Pascal series, then skip the step. (I am using GTX 970 and GTX 980 Ti, therefore will not check-off anything on this Tab. We will manually install our graphics drivers.)


Now select Continue >>Continue

Step 2: Installing macOS High Sierra Hackintosh on SSD.

Insert the USB installer’ into the USB 2.0 Port and Start your PC. The USB 2.0 port is recommended because in some cases the

USB 3.0 port may not work during installation process. If the USB 3.0 port is working, then feel free to use it. (Give it a try)

Now during the PC is starting up keep pressing the BIOS or UEFI Menu button to access the BIOS or UEFI Menu.  For most Motherboards, the BIOS or UEFI Menu is placed on the DELETE button on the keyboard. (Please note your BIOS interface would look different but the options will be same in most cases)

Now when in your BIOS or UEFI Menu, first you will need to make a few changes.

For the BIOS there’s just a couple things that we need to Check
1. First and Foremost, go over to the Save and Exit Tab and Load Optimize Defaults that’s the first thing we want to do.

  1. Next we want to go over to the VT-d and Disable it. 

     3. Enable XHCI Hand-off change to Enabled

4. Change the Windows 8/10 Features to Other OS
    5.
Change Device ROM Priority to UEFI Only. Sometimes known as Storage Boot Option Control
