1 What is a Hackintosh?
A Hackintosh is an Intel based PC which is capable of running Mac OS X either by modifying (hacking) the OS itself or using a special boot procedure which allows the Mac OS X install DVD to run and install the OS on the hard drive. The term Hackintosh, is a portmanteau of the word hack and the name of Apple’s main brand of computers, Macintosh.
2 Can any PC be made into a Hackintosh?
No, only those capable of running OS X can be used. This generally means later generation PC’s with Core based CPU’s. There are exceptions, depending on which distro you use, which will allow even older Pentium 4 based systems to run OS X. Latest macOS requires a processor with SSE 4.2 Instruction set.
