A few years back i tried installing High Sierra. I have always been a windows pc fan. BUT i am a graphic designer, and I am now using an Ipad, so slowly moving towards Mac os by hackintoshing it

I have no idea what I am doing with Kext or mac for that matter.. so the more info you can provide the better. I have been working on this for days... I gave up last year, and trying again I actually got Mojave installed using unibeast, so I am taking steps in the right direction I think. I do have multibeast, but not sure what to do with it.

Running MacOS Mojave dual boot windows 10
To switch between Win and Mac I have to use the USB with clover on it. I would like to do this without the USB preferably

Native keyboard and mouse not working.
I cant do much without a keyboard. Currently using a small raspberry pi game controller size keyboard with touch pad... it sucks.

Wifi not working
I have the Atheros Killer Wireless-n/a/ac 1525 I have read that it wont work with Mac, so can you recommend a great wifi module that will work with both windows 10 and mac Mojave?

One main problem I am running into is, there is SO MUCH INFORMATION, and most dont pertain to my system. Finding the right thread, is frustrating. I keep finding myself on the Broadwell threads. I guess I am mostly done with the set up, just need wifi, and keyboard/mouse working and Im happy. proper Bootloader would be nice too.

thanks for that. I updated my hardware profile, I thought posting it in the thread would have been enough. I found out how to install kext, and got keyboard and mouse working. I am unsure if I want to install clover to the hd, because clover wont boot to windows for me. If I want to boot windows I have to let the laptop boot normally, if I want to boot mac, i have to us the usb.

Main problem is WiFi.. I have no clue what form factor my computers WiFi is so I’m not sure which Wi-Fi module to buy I just bought one, it was rated to work for Mac based off the list, but it doesn’t fit in my computer. It looked similar but no... $35 down the drain... If anybody can point me in the right direction as to what the best Wi-Fi module for an MSI GT72 2qd I would be very thankful.

I know I read through both of them , I’m content with the dual booting options that I’m set up with right now I don’t want to screw it up more messing with bootloaders. Reading the FAQ does not tell me what form factor of Wi-Fi card that I have so that wasn’t very helpful. It did however get me to a card that doesn’t fit my computer that works with Mac. There are a ton of different Wi-Fi card options and I don’t know what to pick that works with my pc. I was hoping somebody that knows My computer may be able to just give me a quick answer because I’ve read through everything I’m not getting what I need

Ty, Any idea what form factor that is because that’s the one I thought I bought. i wonder if my search results gave me multiple options, and I just clicked the wrong one.

I know with that one, I have to use the fakePCIID_Bcm94352z_as-bcm94360cs2.kext, but that might have been renamed to FakePCIID_Broadcom_WiFi.kext So I’m looking for that now.

Looking back, it recommended I buy this with it.

Hobbypower BCM94360CS2/BCM943224PCIEBT2 Card To NGFF(M.2) Key A/E Adapter For Mac OS...

Maybe it will work with that also. The card I received is the Broadcom BCM94360CS

take your existing card out and look at pictures of the BCM94352Z and if they are similar it should work
