you will need a Hackintosh compatible wifi Bluetooth card, you can replace it easily.

Will USB 3.0 work on this Hackintosh?

I found a Mac compatible USB card for WiFi

NETGEAR - Nighthawk AC1900 Dual-Band WiFi USB 3.0 Adapter


Also what doesn’t work besides usb ?

Will my 4K display still work on the laptop itself?

I will be doing your install tomorrow morning after I get the WiFi card. I don’t care much about Bluetooth color calibrator or finger print sensor.

I am using these 2 Hackintoshes for visualization research which includes maya film editing app development which is why I really need OS Xz you can’t develops iOS apps on windows so I figure going completely Mac opens a lot of doors for me

Can the brightness be adjusted without using the keyboard if I make the GPU my primary driver?

If I don’t make the GPU my primary driver and I use it with the laptop screen will resolve and premiere and after effects still activate the GPU ?
