Whatever used stuff that I could get cheaply and locally. I ended up with:RedTomato, what are the specs on your box?
RedTomato, I have followed many a TonyMac guide, and love my beast. However, I am intrigued by the idea of being able to virtually boot Mac instead. Did you follow any particular guide, and what VM software did you use in Windows?
I did use a Mojave VM to create a bootable USB thumbdrive with Multibeast. But it was no fun using it. I ran it in VMWare on my Surface SP6 which only has 8Gb. Make sure you allocate enough memory!
I hired a guy (sharp but not always available) to Hackintosh several loaded Z820s for me at the shop. Since I maintain my own infrastructure though, I wanted to learn how to do it myself. It took a while.
To me, that's a long way from a worksafe machine, but I guess if what you have meets your needs, it's fine. Are you running in VM or native? I got all these things (except thunderbolt) working pretty easily, both in VM and native, but I picked a compatible mobo (mine doesn't have TB anyway). It shouldn't be a struggle.Ideally this would all be running on ESXi, maybe someday. It's far from complete, but this is the 1st time I've been able to boot to a functional desktop. Here's what doesn't work: internal drives, USB3 ports, ethernet, sound, thunderbolt.
