If you just need to compile binaries, CI services would be another option. Travis CI and Azure both have MacOS available, probably more services do as well.

At today, I can say virtualization is not at an acceptable level for this purposes.

Maybe I'm saying this just because I'm so tired and sad (and :x ) after trying to make such setup for several hours. I did it, it basically worked but there're some amazing aspects (as I thought at the beginning) where you get stucked. It correctly recognized the EFI, the virtual CPU, RAM... But not the... mouse! :bang:

And obviously everything is veeery slow...

Tired and sad are not uncommon feelings while building an hackintosh:)

The Hackitosh works great actually. You only need do a little planning when shopping for components. A great way to get the equivalent of a costly high-end mac, for a fraction of the cost. Apple might not like it, but preventing it would be difficult as they would have lock to out hardware practically identical to their own.

I guess it can work and may worth doing if you actually need one. But if you install one out of curiosity on hardware that wasn't initially chosen for it you'll regret it. :)

Gigabyte tends to match apple almost exactly. Most certainly it’s intentional on their part. Just sayin...
