Man I'm lost with all this, so if I install on separate drive I don't need to reinstall Windows 10, ok that's great. If I want iMessage, Hand Off etc to work I need to get a bluetooth and wifi card that's compatible yes? I saw there is a M.2 adapter which works great with a Apple Wifi/Bluetooth card though I have no idea what to do about antennae for it. Is it possible to install Mac OS on an SSD that's attached via a USB 3.1 adapter?
I will work first time i've installed mac os was on my external HDD via usb 3, it took a while but it works. My recomandation is to get a second hhh at least, or create a partition from Windows, then format it with disk utility in os x install process and use clover from an external usb stik or HDD to boot. But to try it is Ok to install it on one external HDD but dont blane the Performance cuz will be bad... Also back up all your sensitive data If you plan to install it on your Windows drive.

What on earth is a hhh? Also I said USB 3.1 not USB 3.0, is 3.1 even supported in Mac OS? If it is the speed should be fine as I get about 450MBs with it on 3.1. Not going to install on my Windows 10 drive, want to keep it separate and not lose the space for Windows.

Dont know about usb 3.1, Never tried it, and hhh is HDD haha, my bad. My advice is try it, if is on an external hard drive you have nothing to lose, just some time in the worst scenario.

Hi! Thank you for continueing this thread. I have 2 questions, do the kext's need to be updated since now we are on 10.12.5, or does it not matter? Also Do you know which BIOS ver you are on and does updating it effect it negatively?

thanks

I'm on the latest bios update, nothing different btw in MacOS.... i've updated kext for the sake of doing it, nothing notable, I will post my updated efi folder when I have the time to do it, but I'd recomend, if it works, leave it as it is, if you have issues, back up what you have and try different things (updating kext, clover, bios...etc...). My way of doing it is working updates on my clover usb stik, and if something went wrong I can still boot from my ssd clover whitch is untouched. When I test updated kext or things, I ussualy leave it on my usb stik for a couple of days and if all is ok, copy the efi folder from my usb to my ssd. Have fun hackintoshing haha ;)

So, here is the my current efi folder for my ASUS X99 DELUXE U 3.1 mobo, with Intel 5820K OC at 4.5 ghz on MacOS 10.12.5 ! I've included the latest Clover Configurator in the archive, is the best thing i've used in hackintoshing with clover.
If you don't have the same hardware like me, I recommend to try files from this efi folder (kext's, ssdt's, driveres...etc) on an external clover usb to not mess your efi on hdd/ssd.
The most important thing, have fun with this :D

Note: ssdt.aml is for my OC cpu at 4.5 ghz. If you have the same OC, you can use it without a worry.

Note2: I've changed my smbios to imac14.2 for native CPUPM (haswell)
