    Although I despise the price of Mac computers, I do tend to love the software for basic media manipulation. Regardless of how much I love the Mac platform, I refuse to pay the high price of the computer, simply because it has the Apple logo on it.

    That being said, I considered building a Hackintosh, which is essentially a non-Apple computer that is built to run Apple software. I love the idea of a Hackintosh in comparison to traditional Mac's because of the availability for upgrade. There are few aspects of a Mac that can be changed, but anything on a standard computer can be replaced. On top of all this, I could get twice the performance for the same price as a low-level iMac. I'll take it!

    Here's my dilemma - I would need a .dmg file of the current operating system. I'm assuming that once I get macOS installed for the first time, I'll be able to update the software without issue, but getting it for the first time could be a project in itself. Would anyone be able to send me this file, or is it even possible to retrieve? I've looked online for any sort of download, but most Hackintosh-related resources are cracked versions of the official resources, which I don't want. I wanted to try an official release before resorting to improper software.

    Thank you in advance!

    I already built my Windows computer and am currently planning my next, this Hackintosh is just a side project. I recognize that it might be a bit of trouble, but it'd be neat to see where the project takes me.

    Besides, if you only ever work with easily understood concepts, you'll never learn anything! I want to make some discoveries with this project, as I've already built a few computers and am more knowledgeable.

    Otherwise, thanks for the feedback!

    Well thank you! I'll have to keep this guide in mind when I go to build it.

    I think I might be able to get the macOS .dmg myself, but if anyone could upload it for me, I'd love that. Thanks!

    Off the topic related. If you were to build the 'Hackintosh' i would like to see your build progress in a thread, because i think it would be cool too see. Either way good luck, have fun.

    Will do! I have to upgrade my primary rig first, but as soon as that one's done, I'll probably start working on this one.

    In regard to the .dmg file, my manager has a MacBook Pro, so I'll see if I can rip the file off his computer. If anyone else is interested, I could perhaps throw it one of my clouds.

    It seems like your original problem is solved with your manager having the .dmg
