[Deprecated] Hackintosh on Gigabyte Z370N WiFi with i5-8500

This post is DEPRECATED. Because I've purchased a MacBook Air with M1 chip, I'm afraid that I can't offer any advice on how to build a Hackintosh with the latest macOS.

I'm new to Hackintosh. When installed it on my comp, I almost got stuck at anywhere except post-installation.

Firstly, if you hang on "Installing Bootloader" with Unibeast 9.0.0, please try to reinstall your macOS, which you use Unibeast, after backup with Time Machine. Besides, I suggest when you want to build yourself at very first time DO NOT buy XFX video card, which I took about 1 week to handle an error "attempting system restart", although it appears at Tony's buyer guide.

Hardware Summary

BIOS Options

As for BIOS options, I fellow with @CaseySJ's guide at here. There are huge differences (at least in the name of options) between the motherboards, you should refer to other tutorials if your motherboard not from Gigabyte.


The method of kext installation and rebuilding kext cache: Copy the kexts you want to install into the folder (like /Library/Extensions, aka /L/E, or other locations). Then, download the Kext Utility that help you rebuild the kext cache and others from here.

I did following thing at the stage of post-installation:


What works:

That's all. Thanks for everyone who helped me build my first Hackintosh at Tonymacx86, especially for @CaseySJ's generous and patient help. I am writing this post for those who has similar config and installs Hackintosh in their first attempt, hopefully it can help you.
