Toshiba Satellite Pro L850, Hackintosh Revisited

Back in 2018 I turned my laptop into a Hackintosh device, running High Sierra. I had a donor MacBook mid-2010 that I used to run TonyMac tools to get Hackintosh working. It was a fun if complicated process of trial and error, but the result was always impressive – a craptop unexpectedly booting macOS. I eventually wiped macOS and re-installed Windows for a WordCamp coding session. The laptop proved to be quite a letdown, and now sits on a shelf collecting dust.

⚠️ This project has been resumed. Please see the latest version of this. While I am a technical person, the Hackintosh community is scores ahead of what I know. The work put in by the awesome community supporting the movement for macOS/OS X on other machines is incredible. I’ve watched the progress since I was 11, but never branched into it. Recently, it all changed. I write this now on a Hackintosh laptop.
