I'll populate the components as I go along, and document as much of what I've done as well as I get things working.
I started my first hackintosh using a HP 8300 after the excellent post https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/...orking-and-easily-affordable-customac.224812/
That worked quite well with OSX installed on a SATA SSD. I had a couple of problems with the fan noise and I decided to try and get it to boot from the AHCI PCIE connected ssd instead. This didn't work but it booted fine otherwise. But then I got the chance to pick up the 800 G1 and I figured I'd have a go at getting High Sierra up and running on that.
I used a mixture of the guide for the 8300, and a blog post http://donsthinktank.blogspot.co.uk/2017/10/hackintosh-hp-800-g1-tutorial-version.html to get the basics up and running.
Integrated graphics works OK
I can boot from the M.2 SSD fine
Wifi/BT works OK
Audio over BT works perfectly to AirPods.
Can't get unlocking via Apple watch to work as it doesn't connect to the watch.
Sleep - Ii seems to go to sleep, then the fans spin down, then a second later the fans all spin up again, then 30s pass and the fans go off - repeat forever. Interestingly the PC wakes back up with a mouse click to working, but obviously it never really oes properly to sleep.
