To begin our hackintosh journal, you will need
All the steps below will perform on the macOS system.
The guide below will walk you through how to create a USB stick to install macos on your zenbook machine, if you want to skip making EFI files (step 2 & 3), you can download it here directly:
Just download the whole EFI folder and follow the remaining steps.
There are some kind people which created a lazy script for us to prepare the essential EFI files, thanks hieplpvip!
Here we will modify the script and use it to download our required EFI files. Since I already modified for myself, I'll just downoad it from my repo.
Clone the repo
git clone [email protected]:thomaslty/Asus-Zenbook-Hackintosh.git
Go to the corresponding folder
Execute download script
chmod +x download.sh && ./download.sh
Execute the build script
chmod +x build.sh && ./build.sh
In this case, we will select 5
The next step is to add WIFI & Bluetool support, to do this we will need to first download the corresponding kext files.
After downloading the kext files, we need to add it to our config.plist located in Asus-Zenbook-Hackintosh/build/EFI/OC/config.plist
Before we can do that, we need to download a software called ProperTree (https://github.com/corpnewt/ProperTree)
Clone the ProperTree repo
git clone https://github.com/corpnewt/ProperTree
Go to the folder
Execute the program
chmod +x ProperTree.command && ./ProperTree.command
There is plenty of online guide teach you how to create a bootable USB drive to install macOS, here is the official document https://support.apple.com/en-hk/HT201372 , just don't forget to choose Big Sur as it is our target OS version.
After the bootable USB drive was made, we will need to modify its EFI content.
Download MountEFI from https://github.com/corpnewt/MountEFI
git clone https://github.com/corpnewt/MountEFI.git
Go to the folder
Execute the MountEFI program
chmod +x MountEFI.command && ./MountEFI.command
You are all done, just restart the machine, boot into BIOS, change the booting order, and use the USB we just made to boot.
Everything else from here is the same as installing a normal macOS system.
Enjoy your hackintosh journal!
Most of the steps are same as Big Sur, only 2 places need to be notice
Here is the TLDR version for people don't wanna do it by themselves. https://mega.nz/folder/F5UyxJQB#3MpZhUC3OGj6fiKeIJ5acA
