  1. Hi Niresh/Hackintoshers, As a Mac use who loathes how expensive Macs are, I have been intrigued big time by Hackintosh. Now that a decent PC laptop HD has died and we bought a better gaming PC for my son, I'm taking the plunge. I've done a search of my issue, but not come across any results. I've followed all Niresh High Sierra steps 1-5 successfully for installing, but since I don't have access to Windows to install on the replacement SATA drive, I installed a spare Mac-formatted SATA HD, which already has Mavericks installed. Trouble is, after installing the Mac HD in the Dell Inspiron 5547, I can't access Step 6: BIOS via the Delete while booting approach. When the Dell acted up, before I considered making it a Hackintosh, I was able to access the Diagnostics, etc., via F2 and F12 when testing that dead PC-formatted HD... ... Is there some way to access Step 6 via F2 or F12, perhaps? Or is a PC formatted HD with Windows installed a must? I have an old Windows XP disk... Is that too old to be useful? (I restarted the Dell using F2 and I see it's an Inspiron 5547 with an i5-4210U CPU with a 1.70Ghz . BIOS version is A08.) Grateful for the help and for this community of Hackintoshers. Thanks in advance for your insights.
  2. The description above doesn't really explain what a DNS Killer does or why? It is the same insufficient description included in the email distributed to your HackintoshZone list. Some statement of the case for downloading DNS Killer should have been provided. Please explain for us why we should want DNS alteration and why downloading and installing DNS Killer from you, Niresh, would be a wise choice??? THANK YOU!
    I'm so bummed. I've downloaded both Mavericks Restore PKG and Niresh Mavericks DMG, but when creating the bootable USB, it says it succeeded, but then the thumb drive is totally empty. BTW, when I use the links on the HackintoshZone.com > Niresh Mavericks, it downloads a file named OSX-Mavericks.dmg. No mention of Niresh, so not sure if it's the right one or not. Anybody got any thoughts?
