Are you guys Wondering what is a Hackintosh and what’s are the benefits of using it? What advantages and disadvantages are and how much it costs. Does it is faster than iMac?. for these questions we have the best answers. Lets look to those questions and answers.
What is a Hackintosh?
Hackintosh is the PC that runs macOS on a PC. In simple words, “Hacking macOS into running in hardware which was not manufactured by Apple Company is called Hackintosh”.
Mac OS x is a great, fastest and safest operating system for anyone. It features great apps, fantastic security and lots of features that we don’t have in Windows OS.
Tthe real apple hardware is really cost a lot, not everyone could afford to buy it.
but for the half of the price of Macintosh, you can make a Hackintosh system and you can upgrade it too in the near future. Hackintosh actually saves your money and its the cheapest solution for mac os x.
Is Hackintosh legal?
Using OS X image and installing it on components that non-manufactured by Apple is a violation of Software License Agreement (latest copy found here http://images.apple.com/legal/sla/docs/OSX1011.pdf).
As an individual user, it is extremely unlikely you’d face any legal action for creating a Hackintosh. Firstly, it is highly unlikely Apple would ever be able to pinpoint that you are using a Hackintosh. Secondly, it is highly unlikely Apple (the world’s highest valued corporation) would launch a lawsuit against an individual for running a Hackintosh. Apple has never sued any Hackintosh users as of Feb 2017.
Do Hackintoshes perform as well as actual Macs? Are they stable?
If you configured your Hackintosh PC correctly it will work awesome. Means if all of your Hackintosh components are higher-end build than used in the official Apple Computers then you will outperform to any Mac.
A few years back there were only two areas, in our opinion, where you will be getting an ‘inferior’ experience to running a real mac. The first concerns updating OS X and second were hardware issues. But in these days mostly 80% errors that we were facing are gone because of Clover Bootloader update.
Thanks to Clover team who work hard to build this software. Now we can easily update macOS as like it does update in real Mac. And hardware issues are not too much remained. if you build good PC then you don’t need to worry about anything.
Can you install Mac OS on a Windows PC or Can my Computer Run OS X?
That depends on PC’s components. The main qualifier is that your machine should have an Intel processor. You can run on AMD, but it’s generally more trouble than it’s worth. The easiest machines to install on are ones with UEFI BIOS motherboard, especially Gigabyte boards. For the graphics card, Nvidia used to be easier to get working and they update driver whenever new macOS update release.
Want to Install Hackintosh Where do I start?
First, if your hardware components are not much higher then you should start with Niresh Distros they are the easy way of Installing Mac OS X on PC. If you want to install the latest version of OS X and your PC is higher-end you should check out TonymacX86 guides.
What is Niresh distro?
Niresh Distro is a Custom made bootable installation media (ISO/USB Bootable) of Mac OS X.
What are the advantages of Niresh distro?

Where can I download Niresh distro?
You can download it from hackintosh.zone website but you may have to create an account first in order to download it.
What is Boot-Loader?
Every operating system needs a bootloader which loads the operating system and this is same with Hackintosh too. Apple has its own bootloader but that bootloader will not work with non-apple computers so a special bootloader is needed to boot mac os x on non-apple hardware
Following are the Bootloaders
- Chameleon (Most Famous and Stable Boot-loader)
- Chimera (Made by TonymacX86)
- Clover (Advanced Boot-loader and best bootloader to run latest macOS X)
