Asus X556UA Hackintosh MacOS Sierra [18/04/2017]


When you can’t give up on MacOS, you go Hackintosh. It’s far from perfect and little harder on laptops, but it’s doable. Now I’m taking my brand new Asus X556UA, Core i7 7500U, Intel HD Graphic 620, 8G DDR4, 256G SSD.

I used Clover, I found it easier to work with. All you need to do, is to download these files and to your Clover USB. I will keep these files updated as much as I can, There still no Kaby Lake system from Apple and some new technologies are hard to implement.
