Hackintosh Asus C422 Build

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Long story short, wife broke my iMac Pro (Xeon 2140B, 8 Core) in an unrecoverable way.

 

Bought an ASUS WS C422 PRO/SE LGA2066 and transplanted the salvageable parts to it., 128G memory, dual M.2 Sata (later found out you can't run raid0 without their dongle, no worries)...currently running Win10. 

 

Can't seem to get Clover to boot, even with someone else's known working EFI folder. 

 

I haven't built a hackintosh in years, and need some insight and maybe a good starting place (or help if someone else has built the same or similar setup)

Hackintosh discussion is technically against the rules here, it's difficult to word a lot of it and people may be very hesitant to talk about it.

Its not "reee OSX" it's moreso that there isn't really a legitimate way of doing it and it's viewed akin to using windows activator tools. Kinda under the umbrella of piracy.

 

I would honestly suggest looking to the Reddit hackintosh community rather than LTT, they have a lot more people who are much more experienced in this kind of thing and discussion of it isn't prohibited in many ways there.

The 10 commandments of the modern tech support forum:

-Do not use the "home" edition of any OS and then complain you cant do something OS related.

-Do not update Windows 10 if it functions normally at the time.

-For the love of god dont update Nvidia drivers beyond 10 versions past release, if it doesnt work normally by then its just screwed. If you keep going its going to eventually perform worse than it did before.

-Always update AMD drivers as for some reason they are the polar opposite and cant get their drivers to work on release but they work great 5 years later.

-Do not download any Antivirus software, Windows Defender is adequate at keeping you from being stupid, other than that you only need Common Sense 2006 edition.

-Google your problems first, the helpful people on tech support forums are just people who know how to use google.

-Dont discuss irrelevancies on tech support forums, an answer to OP's question must be the first line of your first reply to a thread, follow it with whatever.

-Dont use any software that claims to fix registry errors.

-There are more brands out there than Corsair and EVGA, at least try and be original.

-Read your own posts before you post them.
