Setting Up BIOS and booting to your USB

Ok now I want to Show you how to Setting Up BIOS and booting to your USB in your pc or motherboard

Setting Up!

General Bios settings:
– Load Optimized Defaults
– If your CPU supports VT-d, disable it
– If your system has CFG-Lock, disable it
– If your system has Secure Boot Mode, disable it
– Set OS Type to Other OS
– If your system has IO SerialPort, disable it
– Set XHCI Handoff to Enabled
– Set Controller From Raid to Ahci (Some Bios doesn’t have it but try anyway, some are supported
some aren’t)
– Boot mode UEFI only
For MSI BIOS (some bios are similar):
– Boot into bios setting by pressing “DELETE” button
– Settings>Advanced>Super IO Configuration
o Here we will disable both Serial and Parallel Port Config
– Settings>Advanced>Integrated Peripherals

Set SATA mode to AHCI
– Settings>Advanced>Integrated Graphics Configuration
o Integrated Graphics Memory set to 64MB
o IGD Multi-Monitor set to Enabled
– Settings>Advanced>USB Configuration
o Enable USB Controller
o Enable XHCI Hand-Off
o Enable Legacy USB Support
– Settings>Boot

Set Boot Select Mode as Legacy+UEFI
Problems Booting Window after switching from Raid to AHCI? Let your pc or laptop run diagnostic
automatically until we see Automatic Repair, Select Advanced Options>Troubleshoot>Advanced
options> See more recovery options>Startup Setting>Restart |Then Press number 4 or 5 both boots to
safe mode but 5 enables networking. After this you can open window normally.
You can dual boot with Window and Mac. If you want to install Mac only please go ahead, you can
always install another operating system. Installing hackintosh only? Proceed to STEP 4.

Dual Boot

Single Disk

1. Go to Start and search “Disk
Management” or “create and format
hard disk partitions”
2. Assuming your disk is in GPT.
3. Shrink the desire partition which has
the largest available space to the
desired space for installing
Hackintosh (recommends 60 Gb and
4. Then right click on the unallocated
and create new simple volume with
the name “Hackintosh” just to know
which partition we should erase later
with disk utility on Mac installer.
5. If your disk is not in GPT, sorry you
have to format the whole disk and
install Hackintosh first then install

Single Disk

1. Go to Start and search “Disk
Management” or “create and format
hard disk partitions”
2. Assuming your disk is in GPT.
3. You can format another disk for
Hackintosh but if you have data on
that disk you can shrink it and create
a new partition name “Hackintosh”
so we can know which partition to
erase to avoid deleting your
important data.(recommends 60 Gb
and above).
4. If that disk is not in GPT you have to
erase the whole disk with GPT


Creating Bootable Mac OS USB installer

What is hackintosh? Hackintosh is simply installing Mac OS on non-apple machine. Let’s get started with
hackintosh but first let’s have a bit of knowledge with regulations. Hackintoshing is “Ok?” as long as if
you own a Mac or the Mac OS as long as not making business out of it you will be fine.

Creating Bootable Mac OS USB installer – This step will be the same for laptop and desktop. Here we use Olarila, Olarila is home of vanilla. So what
is Vanilla? Basically Vanilla use Appstore version of Mac OS with clover bootloader to hackintosh and
Olarila provides a better chance of success. Whereas Niresh uses the Appstore version of Mac OS but it
has been modified with clover bootloader. Amongst the two, Vanilla is better because of its
compatibility. Let’s get started! We’re are aiming with intel processor in this tutorial.

1. Go to then you will need to register an account. Don’t worry it may
sound fishy but we need an account to let the supporters know which person they are helping.

2. After you finished registered and logged in your account. Head to this link:

3. Next, we’re going to choose which Mac OS version that will be supported for our desktop or
laptop. Newer generation of processor supports newer version of Mac OS, High Sierra or Sierra is
a good start for most machine. If you have Nvidia Graphic card only fermi and kepler plates will
work and unfortunately for optimus it will not work on any version. Don’t worry lots of the pc has
intel integrated graphic. As for AMD GPU only, some series will be compatible with Hackintosh.

4. Here I chose Mojave the latest one, Since I don’t have Nvidia Graphic card or supported AMD. here is the Olarila guide please have look
through it. I recommend High Sierra, Let’s get started!!

5. Here’s the file we downloaded and the one next to it is after extracted.

6. For window we can use etcher or win32diskimager. As for Mac we can use etcher. Here we’re
going to use etcher.
