    Apple’s new Mac Pro will max out at 28 CPU cores, but that’s projected to cost as much as a midrange sports car. Nothing a bare metal Hackintosh can’t fix…

              Should've used the Gigabyte C621 WD12. Though the x299 WU8 is another unique board. It has dual 8747 PLX chips for 4-way 16X PCI-e 3.0 GPU support or 7-way 1 16X 6 8X GPU support.

                                          Hackintosh are bullshit and so is the community. If you are tech savvy you still won’t get it going. If you are extremely tech savvy you may get it working. If you can’t get it going good luck getting help from the forum community. I verified my hardware was comparable and still could not get it going. No help from the community.

                                                                                Back then it was already fairly painless to setup using a VM with direct disk access to do the install and install the Chameleon bootloader.

                                                                                Later when Sandy Bridge was released it became dead easy using either Chameleon or Clover, even getting GPU's working.

                                                                                Now with the EFIvolution of Clover, it is equally simple.

                                                                                You just need to generate a correct smbios for your hardware to get iMessage etc working. The smbios info even has control over how the iGPU is used on supported CPU's like my 2600k (maximum VRAM differs between iMac and MacMini) and what power management features get activated at boot.

                                                                                So don't just stick with the VM base that, just seems to work... fix it properly.
