    I had run a Hackintosh setup years ago on Snow Leapoard.

    I would like to try and get set up again, but my specs have changed. I see all the guides now require an access to a MAC, Just curious if there is any way around it or if the old Snow Leopard guide will work on newer systems. I have a retail version of Snow leopard.

    I took a crack at it but just got stuck at the grey screen with the Apple logo.

    My System Specs are,

    GA-Z170X-Gaming 7 TH
    I7 6700K
    Nvidia GTX 1050
    32GB RAM

    Your system should work with MacOS Sierra 10.12.6 and High Sierra.

    Snow Leopard no longer works with newer systems such as your Skylake system. You need access to a Mac or working hackintosh in order to download MacOS and make a Unibeast USB stick if you want to follow the guides here.

    Thanks for the info, Unfortunately, I have no way to access a working MAC so I guess I am out of luck.
    Appreciate the reply!
