Why won’t my Hackintosh boot?

Tim December 22, 2011

I recently read one of your guides about running Mac on a PC.

I have all the hardware, but it can’t get it to boot. When I run “boot Mac” then I get a black screen and that’s it. Any ideas what is wrong?

    When you say you 'have all the hardware', you mean you specifically bought compatible hardware for the sake of this build? Or are you just assuming your hardware is compatible. It would of course help if you elaborated a little, like what hardware you actually have, what install method you are using, and which guide?

    What method did you use to install OSX? What guide did you use?

    Are you getting this before or after you try to install?

    Also installing and running a Hackintosh is a grey area, but still technically illegal. Just wanted to get that out there.

      I found the guide you used. Sorry, there have been several articles written, All using a slightly different method.
