On a hackintosh it’s possible to dual boot macOS and Windows on the same hard drive disk, which I will explain how to here. Although it’s recommended that macOS be installed on a separate drive than Windows, it’s perfectly possible to dual boot Windows and macOS on the same drive for those that don’t have multiple hard drives to spare. Dual-booting on separate hard drives is super easy you just install macOS on one drive and Windows on the other and then simply boot Windows as a temporary device or through the Clover menu. For those that want to install both macOS and windows on the same drive this guide to walk you through the steps. Hackintosh Dual-Boot Guide For those of you not familiar with dual-booting or a macOS hackintoshing. We will first need to format the drive as GUID using Disk Utility.
Install Mac OS X Sierra in PC: A video guide on installing Mac OS X Sierra in PC from start to finish.Download the requisite files from links below.Mac OS X. Choose “OS X Extended (Journaled)” and “GUID Partition Map” for Format and Scheme. Hit the Erase button to complete the formatting process and then close Disk Utility. Step 14: Now simply run through the process of actually installing macOS Sierra on your PC.
Disk Utility is an application in macOS that is basically the equivalent of Disk Management in Windows and can be accessed in the same way Disk Management is either during the install or in the operating system after installation is completed. The drive should to be formatted first in macOS Disk Utility as the GUID format is required to install macOS and doing it with Disk Utility will also create a larger 200MB hidden EFI partition, which is larger than what is created with Windows Disk Management (100MB) and will therefore be able to fit both the macOS and Windows EFI files as well as leave some extra room left over. We can either make the Windows partition during the install or after the install. The reason you would want to do it during the install is if you wanted to have the Windows partition show up as first and the macOS partition as second, however personally I prefer having macOS first and Windows second as my hackintosh is reliable enough that I use macOS almost exclusively. For Dual-Booting the only requirement is that the SSD/HDD be first formatted as GUID.
You could install Windows before macOS if you really wanted to, but for this guide it makes sense to install macOS first and then Windows second as we already have to be in the macOS installer to format as GUID and don’t have to move anything around in the EFI with Windows installed after macOS. Step 1: Access macOS To create a macOS flash drive installer you will first need either a. Access to a Mac or b.
A virtual machine running macOS. If you do not have a Mac or borrow then create a virtual machine running macOS using one of the two links below depending on whether you are using Intel or AMD as your CPU/Processor. Step 2: Make a macOS High Sierra Hackintosh Now that we have access to macOS we will now create a flash drive installer containing macOS install files and then install macOS. Based on what CPU/Processor you are using following the full guide below and then return to this one once you have macOS running. Just os you know you will need to completely wipe the drive you are using in order to format as GUID using Disk Utility.
Also after macOS keep the flash drive the way it is as you will need it later. You will need another separate flash drive to install Windows if you don’t already have an installer. Intel: Ryzen: Step 3: Create a Partition for Windows Now that we have macOS installed it’s time to make some room for Windows. • Open Disk Utility • Select Show All Devices by clicking on the View button at the top left corner of Disk Utility • Select the Drive (The drive is name of the drive like Samsung/Crucial and is indicated by the arrow to the left of it’s name) • Click Partition button at the top toolbar • Add a new partition by clicking the [ +] button under the circle • Give it a name and desired size I would give a minimum of 50GB for Windows 10 • Set Format: ExFat • Click Apply.
Step 4: Install Windows 10 on Hackintosh If you dont have a way to install Windows you will need to create USB flash drive with Windows on it, but don’t wipe and use the same flash drive you used to install macOS as you still need that to regain access to macOS in Step 5. I followed your instructions, but I do not have a “EFI/Microsoft/Boot/” option in clover configurator.
I can boot into OSX (high sierra) only through the USB stick. I think from other posts I’ve seen that I should not have formatted the windows partition ExFat, but left it unformatted, and that because of that windows 10 created a separate boot partition. Is there some other way to get the clover bootloader to take precedence over Windows bootloader? From the USB stick’s clover, I am able to boot both Windows and OSX.
