Re: Building a Mac (Hackintosh) in 2018
Hackintosh is illegal, against the legal part in the EULA that you'd need to agree to in order to run the software, I believe that discussion of hackingtosh is also outlawed under the same EULA, (of course as I don't use a Mac I never agreed to that EULA...)
you'll find that most guides are guides that apply to particular laptops or particular hardware setups, that use particular CPUs and chip sets...
basically, Apple only ever sell a PC that they entirely control, a part of the reason that there used to be many more blue screens on a PC compared to mac is that windows had to write code that could work on any on of an almost infinite combination of hardware, mac had to write for one iteration of hardware, (where the only difference was a slower CPU from the same family, or less of the same type of RAM.) broadly that is still true, the amount of genuine hardware is reasonably limited, so you cannot expect core parts to just work on any hardware.
Basically, it's a huge amount of work, it often just doesn't work. rather than messing around with that you'd do better to take the same amount of hours work you'd do getting it working and do some overtime or something until you save for the real thing!
If you are just video editing what is wrong with a windows PC? (or Linux based PC?)

Im sick of people saying 'dont waste paper'. If trees wanted to live, they'd all carry guns.
