Thanks Rehabman,

I've read the information of the link and it's too technical for my knowledge.
Yes my Sony works on UEFI, but I don't have a Mac to follow the procedures on the USB and so on.
I've seen some tutorials on YouTube and most of them link the questions to tonymacx86.

Would you be so kind to help me on this regard? Will I achieve to install Mac OS without having a Mac nearby?

Many thanks for your kind attention.

Follow the guide as written. It is not as difficult as you might think.

You will need a Mac or working hack in order to download OS X/macOS (it is only available from the Mac App Store).

Thanks for your answers but I don't know anyone with a Mac. Besides that, my knowledge of IT is very basic and I'm afraid to mess my computer and end with no OS on it.
Sorry for the question but Is there any place where I can download a proper and correct (and well done) "package" to copy into a USB and try to install it?

Sorry for my poor knowledge but I would much like to have a "Mac" the only issue is the price of it.

Thank you in advance

It is a non-starter if you don't have access to a Mac or working hack... since you have no way to download OS X/macOS.

Your other alternative is to purchase a Snow Leopard DVD from apple.com, and install it first... then get it working well enough to access the Mac App Store. It can be tricky with new hardware (SL is old).

Ok, I Will try to buy the DVD. It must be dmg or ISO? I have an Apple Store near me.
Can I Install SL directly from the DVD? I guess not, right?

Edit: I updated my profile info so you can see the specs of my Vaio.

There're several problems for xps 13 according to those guys who tried:

  • SD Card Reader (known issue, no fix)
  • USB-C Thunderbolt (attempted to use HP Thunderbolt Dock)
  • USB-C USB
  • Volume Hotkeys

Hello, need an advice
I have hackintoshed my Laptop HP Compaq 15-s104tx and everything is working fine with some workaround.

But since my Wi-Fi is Realtek RTL8723be and I have read that it does not support, I want to know that what wifi card can I install on my PC. I mean I do not know what Wi-Fi card will work with BIOS an what are blocked. My BIOS is Insyde f.22 so, of course not every Wi-Fi card will work. But, how to know which will work. There is no information HP site about this.

OR any wi-fi card will work?

Partial Success MSI GS63VR 6RF. I just wanted to say Thank You to everyone at TonyMacx86 that has helped me with my hackintosh needs.

Wifi (replaced with m.2 NGFF Broadcom BCM94352Z)
USB
Intel HD 530 Graphics
Keyboard
Trackpad
Battery monitor
Sound

Whats not working
Bluetooth (Followed the guid but only could get the wifi to work, gave up)
Card Reader (I can live without but would like it to work)
Webcam (NEC Webcam)
Nvidia GTX 1060 (I hope there is support in the future for these cards as this laptop has a dedicated 1060 not discrete)

Will this work on hackintosh? For wifi at least I can confirm that it wouldn't work.

Thanks
