    Very helpful information. Thnx for sharing. Just found out about the EVO Plus limitations although am still not sure what the anomaly could be that results in the performance hit. :problem:

    Very promising information... Is the external hard-drive a traditional spinning drive? "Since you talk about it taxing your patience"...

    So I take it your clone has hackintosh driver kext files as other components as well? And with those custom files, FV2 works with no issues correct?

    FileVault and Sierra guide for noobs like me

    Thnx for the response... The first part of your statement confused me slightly. For clarification, you are saying your hackintosh has FV2 enabled running Mojave but "just in case" you also happen to have a clone image of your setup on an external device correct? It sounded like it was the...

    Anyone successfully using Filevault on their Hackintosh?

    Looking to build my first hackintosh & have been lurking on this informative site gathering information prior to dropping $$ on my build. A deal breaker for me though before diving in is Filevault functionality. Thus, I wanted to find out if anyone has Filevault security enabled on their...

There by bypassing High Sierra converting the SSD to APFS correct? Also, pls can you point me to a guide on how one backups/copies their EFI...

    Samsung 970 EVO M.2 NVMe SSD

    When you say you "used my 2.5" SSD drive," does that mean you booted into your Hackintosh using your internal 2.5" drive that already had macOS and cloned the drive to the NVMe SSD using an app such as CCC? Just wanted an update on how the Evo 970 is holding up. Am looking into putting...

    [Guide] Avoid APFS conversion on High Sierra update or fresh install

    I know this thread was originally created on Sep 26, 2017...As of today, (almost a year later), is it still advised to avoid APFS on new Hackintosh builds with High Sierra and an NVMe SSD. Secondly, are there still issues with Hackintosh setups using the Evo 970 series SSDs? If it's off topic...

    [Success] Core i5-8400 + Asus ROG Strix Z370-F + macOS RGB

    I really appreciate you breaking this down! :clap: Currently looking to build my first ever Hackintosh and having been researching for some days now (components + Hackintosh guides & "cautions") and currently have 90% of my parts put together. Corsair's Vengence RGB also happen to be on my list...
