Does installing MacOS Mojave on non-apple hardware wipe selected disk on install?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I am going to try and dual-boot Windows 10 and MacOS Mojave (This isn't on a Mac). Does the installer wipe the disk, removing Windows and installing Windows after mac OS?

Use a separate disk for dual booting. You'll save yourself a lot of hassle. Just grab a 240GB SSD for like $40-50 and use that.

Use a partition manager that supports both NTFS and HFS+ (I recommend GParted), then shrink the NTFS volume, then create the HFS+ partition

 

Even then, it is a better idea to use a seperate drive

just keep things simple and use another drive 

 

also if you have a Nvidia GPU they haven't released drivers yet so avoid it for now and stick with high sierria

I'm not familiar with running macOS on unsupported hardware but but mojave uses APFS.

The installer should convert it to APFS

I think hackintosh is disallowed to talk about on this forum? But no, macOS will not erase other partitions if configured properly, that is, GUID partition table with a at least 200MB EFI system partition. If you try to install Mojave to a HFS partition on a SSD, Mojave will convert it to APFS during the process, but this won't affect other partitions.
