Hey guys, so Im currently on my 2013 built Hackintosh. Running Mavericks and Chimera bootloader. I am unable to update past this due to my System Definition. It is currently setup as a late 2013 iMac.

Specs:
i7 3770K
Gigabyte Z77-DS3H board
EVGA GTX 760
16gb Corsair Vengance Low Profile RAM

I'm assuming its not as simple as just changing my definition and deleting some kexts if I want to go from Mavericks to High Sierra/Mojave.

Also, I would like to change from Chimera to Clover if possible.

Any advice, links etc would be great help.
Thanks Jamie

Create a new installation on a new drive, following the High Sierra or Mojave installation guide. You can then transfer everything across using Migration assistant. Make sure that all important data is backed up to an external drive. I assume that you are using iMac 13,2 system definition for your hardware.

If using iMessage, then note your S/N. and all other information from your existing build - see iMessage guide for further information.
