Precautions to Take Before Installing macOS High Sierra on Hackintosh i7 8700k Coffee Lake

ALERT:  Before we start first I need to warn you about few things. For installing macOS High Sierra on Hackintosh on i7 8700k Coffee Lake 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 i7 8700k Coffee Lake CPU make a full backup of your PC or Hackintosh (in case you are clean installing Mac OS High 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.

Before we start the process of installing Hackintosh macOS High 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

NVidia CUDA driver


Step 1: Create Bootable USB Drive For Installing macOS High Sierra on Hackintosh 
on i7 8700k Coffee Lake CPU.

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.
