So its Saturday groceries are done for the week missus is catching up on some of her soaps so what to do.

 

Picked up a Intel NUC NUC6i5SYH 6th Gen and 8gb of ram the other day and I thought I might as well take it out of the box and do something with it.

 

Did not really know what I was going to do so thought I would have a browse around the web and see what I could come up with.

 

45 minutes later I have this now running on it , Easier that I thought and quite surprised.

Nice. I tried to get Mac OS working on VirtualBox once, but I couldn't get it going.

I tried to build a desktop for Mac OS X but my GPU was to old for the latest version and I had a driver issue with my motherboard audio. I now use VMWare.

No need. I googled some more. It looks like it is working. Just curious if anyone can confirm the state of it. It has been a long time since I looked, it was not easy back then.

Installed just fine and everything seems to be working ok , all the simulators work including the watch series 2.

 

 

 

No idea what to do with it but it works fine.

How old is your GPU? My fairly old GTX460 runs Sierra just fine under my i5-750 (2009-era gear).

I installed Sierra last weekend and it is running fine. I did install the nvidia drivers. I have a gtx460 as well. I couldn't get it to work in 10.11. Also my audio works on my GA-Z87-HD3 with a 4790k. :)

I ran snow lepoard perfectly with USB and everything working on a 2500K with a 5770 ATI card. 
Good to see its going, Do all your ports work?

I couldn't get the nvidia web drivers working (black screen after the apple logo), so am using the baked-in drivers, which work just fine. Mind you, I only use my hackintosh for toying with OSX, not for graphics intensive stuff. Audio working out of the box too (on an ASUS p7p55d-e-pro which uses VIA VT1828s audio chipset).

 

 

 

EDIT: All USB ports working as far as I know - and my PS2 keyboard.

Yep all motherboard USB ports are working. My case 4x USB 2.0 ports and 2x USB 3.0 ports are also working.

I think I had to disable injection of the apple nvidia to use the web drivers in clover/multibeast.
