Hackintosh Razer Blade Stealth 1650

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I would like to know if anyone has successfully created a hackintosh with the Razer Blade Stealth with the GTX 1650. (working means iMessage, etc.) If so, I was wondering if you could create a guide on how to do it. I am looking to try and dual-boot Windows and MacOS on the laptop I am getting, but I am not sure if it will work on this device, so I don't want to buy the laptop until I am sure it will work. Thx ahead of time.

They do not allow Hackintosh tutorials here. I would Assume based on the hardware of the laptop, it wouldnt work.

It will work, although you will likely need to run it in a VM on top of Linux if you plan to take advantage of the 1650.

Discussion is okay, Tutorial involves showing how to do it and such isnt :P My comment still stands.

Correct.

I forget the reason, but that was the decision that was made.

 

Either way, the community can now hackintosh away without fear.

No, there isn't. The fact that there is an Nvidia graphics card in that machine means that it will never work with macOS. Theoretically the best you could get is integrated graphics. Further, essentially no Hackintosh builds ever work with iMessage. 

 

If you need to dual boot macOS and Windows, you need to get a Mac.

Did you watch the video? I mean it was High Sierra, the most recent MacOS Nvidia released drivers for, but they got it to work on a 1070 (and Ryzen). They did state that "It will run on any hardware" 16:30 (although they also state that Imessage was hit or miss)

 

What the OP could do it then dual boot Windows and Linux, and then boot from Linux into MacOS.

High Sierra is 3 years behind at this point and will only get older as time goes on. Nvidia graphics cards are simply not supported on any modern version of macOS in any capacity. It would make no sense to buy a laptop with an Nvidia GPU with the intention of hacking macOS onto it.

Yes it is, although they got it working on Ryzen and I am pretty sure that there exist no drivers for running MacOS on Ryzen at this time, thereby since the whole idea involves running it in a VM in the first place it may prove to be a non issue.

Ryzen runs x86, you don't need drivers for a CPU that shares the same architecture as Intel chips. AMD chips and Nvidia chips have no such similarities.

Thank you for finding this for me, otherwise I would have had to move this to Reddit.

I thought that if you modified the serial number to one of a real Mac, you would be able to get those services working?

I (nor any other sane person) am not attempting to game with the MacOS installation. I only need it for things like handoff and consistency. Even if working within a Linux VM does not solve the Nvidia driver problems, only running on the i7's integrated graphics for MacOS and only using the 1650 for Windows would be perfectly fine with me. Mentioning the 1650 in the title and original post was only to specify the specific hardware. If I am only using integrated graphics with MacOS, would I potentially save battery life by not using the 1650, or would it still be receiving power in the background? If it would, would there be a way to disable the discrete graphics while in MacOS?

The 1650 will likely be receiving power in the background, although if it allows you boot it into Mojave or Catalina (I don't personally know if you can get into anything later than High Sierra) it will not be under load and will hardly consume any power.
