OpenCore Hackintosh for Dell G3 3579

macOS OpenCore license


English | 中文(同步更新)

Latest Release: v4.3

macOS Version: 11.2.2

OpenCore Version: 0.6.7 Official

This OpenCore hackintosh repo is made for i5-8300H, GTX1050, no USB Type-C version of Dell G3 3579.

I will try to update this project as fast as possible, which means it will be adapted to the latest version of OpenCore and macOS

Without CerteKim's support there would be no such project.

vv-byte helped solve the battery management problem, thanks!

CalvinXu helped add Windows boot support, thanks!

PyhNOVWH provide SSDT for i2C trackpad, thanks!
