One of the requirement for a perfect hackintosh is getting the internal sound to work natively, and AppleALC.kext with Lilu.kext will help to get most of the Audio Codecs working perfectly with sounds. The pair must be at the correct versions for them to work together. You will need DPCIManager to identify the audio codecs […]
Most of our Windows Laptops don’t have Broadcom Bluetooth and Wifi combo that support macOS Catalina. When we first started, we can use an inexpensive USB wifi dongle to connect to internet with our Hackintoshes. I had an old Netis WF2111 n150 that works. The problem is not many external USB wifi dongles have updated […]
The perfect Hackintosh MacBook Pro or Air is the ability to perform tasks, sleep/wake, ACPI power management just like a real thing or even better. We need to patch the DSDT and SSDTs correctly for these functions to work just like the originals. We need apps: iasl, maciASL, and information from Rehabman reference websites. There […]

This is how I configure and install an external USB hard drive for Catalina 15.5. Assuming you have a bootable […]

It’s not hard but not easy, the best thing is to understand what needs to be done to get it working just like a MacBook Pro or MacBook Air. Thanks to the hackintosh developer communities, hackintosh is much easier now than […]
I decided to try the less expensive BT 4.1 and Wifi combo dw1820a for my Elitebook 820 G3 hackintosh instead of the more expensive dw1560 M2. Before we tape all the pins recommended by other people, download Windows drivers and install them first to see if they work, if they work then chances are the […]
