I've been reading a lot of opinions from the Tech Press about the Apple Macintosh which celebrated its 40 anniversary this week. Ridley Scott's '1984' Super Bowl commercial introduced the Mac's graphical interface to the masses, a distinct alternative to IBM's lines of code.
Today Apple released macOS 14.3 Update, a major software update for macOS Sonoma. Update any supported system using the built-in Software Update functionality through macOS System Settings.
After building/owning several small form-factor PCs for the last few years I decided time was ripe to go large again. ATX was chosen. Jumping straight to a 14th Generation Intel CPU was a bit of a risk, I admit, but I’m glad to say all has worked-out nicely. For a case I went for the Fractal Design North midi-tower in White and Oak. It’s a real high-quality item.
This build is updating the older system in my converted Mac Pro 5.1 2008 computer case. Love the looks of the Mac Pro 5.1 case. I just happened upon the Asus Z690M-Plus as I was looking to replace the Z87M system in my Mac Pro case mod. I already have a Z690 system base upon @CaseySJ 's Golden Build Z690 system.
If your Intel CPU's iGPU is not supported by the macOS version you want to install or you just need stronger graphics, an AMD GPU is the way to go. All 11th, 12th and 13th Gen Intel based hackintosh builds need a dedicated GPU. AMD Ryzen CPU based builds will also. If you want to edit video and/or run 3 monitors a dGPU is a good idea.
OpenCore Legacy Patcher was designed to install the latest versions of macOS on unsupported Apple hardware. It was never designed for use on a Hackintosh nor supported by anyone. The only valid and supported use of OCLP on a Hackintosh is for Post-Install Root Patch.
