    Hackintoshes are such a pain – You need the right hardware, and you need to invest a huge amount of time and effort EVERY TIME you change that hardware. But there’s another way…

      If you are doing a pass through...
      Wouldn't you need 2 GPUs?
      What would be the cheapest one you can think about for the host?

            Benchmark it and see how much performance hit you get.

                      but what's the point tho? why not just run hackintosh, run natively than virtualising? what's the use case for this

                        Punishing yourself, as it's going to be slow and unusable on a normal system. :)
                        However, virtualisation works well as a backup system to use to recover a borked hackintosh (e.g. Make bootable usb installers, grabbing kexts, running chamaleon, reconfiguring clover and so on).

                          I tried once to install macos on Virtual Box and VMware, with no success. It just keeps rebooting while loading the installer. I only managed it by downloading a virtual drive already with it installed. OF COURSE I was suspicious, but since it was the only possible way to get it working... 🤷🏽‍♂️

                                          I bought a MacBook Pro with Final Cut Pro X to do my video editing. When I run FCP X my laptop, the fan starts running full blast and the entire keyboard area gets extremely hot. After a while, my mouse pointer will start to jump and skate all over the screen randomly clicking on items and I must do an emergency power off by the power button to save everything and let it all cool down. Building a desk top hackintosh seems like a good idea.
                                          There, I said it, I want you to build an awesome hackintosh to do final cut pro X video editing. I might even buy it from you!

I force ejected the Install High Sierra "disk4" on the desktop, then I located the cdr.dmg file which just needs to be converted and did not for me for whatever reason to a windows compatible iso file. I navigated to the Applications folder and opened terminal from there. Within Terminal I did the following command without quotes "hdiutil convert HighSierra.cdr.dmg -format UDTO -o /tmp/HighSierra.iso" and then "mv /tmp/HighSierra.iso.cdr ~/Desktop/HighSierra.iso" and it converted fine. Onward to the next steps!
