    Insane how much the AMD RyzenX community has advanced AMD hackintoshes.

    This not even top of the line monster crushes everything Apple has in their lineup (sans the new to be released Mac Pro) and is even easier to install and setup than Intel builds.

    (fights urge to jettison 9900k build and go AMD)

    hmmmm, if only I had access to a mac to get the copy of the OS. I think I would build one of these. I would need imessage etc to all be working though.

    You can purchase original boxed copies of MacOS installation media on Amazon:

    Best Sellers in Mac Operating Systems
    https://www.amazon.com/Best-Sellers-Software-Mac-Operating-Systems/zgbs/software/229660

    A lot of them are unavailable, but there's a few selling open box used copies:
    https://www.amazon.com/gp/offer-listing/B001AZ3Y66/ref=dp_olp_0?ie=UTF8&condition=all
    https://www.amazon.com/gp/offer-listing/B003HAFZQO/ref=dp_olp_0?ie=UTF8&condition=all

    IDK if those would work or not, I don't Hackintosh myself and I don't recommend others do either. MacOS ain't that great, and hardly worth getting the wrath of Apple on you by building a Hackintosh.

    If you need MacOS buy an Apple Computer. :)

    For the moment, APPLE can take a breather for as long as 6mths since Ryzentosh Laptop installations is still in a buggy, not as perfect as Intel system state. Once the MacBook with that PRO5600m is released, "hackers" will start to dig on AMD drivers and probably to work on that to make AMD GPUs, be it integrated or dedicated to work with Ryzentosh OSes. Only then... APPLE's biggest threat is imminent!

    Why bother with GPU drivers working well with Ryzen, when there will not be a Ryzen based Mac?
