    I was just wondering, but what is the best way to put Mac OS Sierra on a Windows machine (Without another mac)? I've been doing some research, but there seem to be several methods.
    I am pretty certain my laptop is compatible.
    Intel i3 4030U dual core 4th gen
    12 Gb 1600 Mhz DDR3 RAM
    Intel HD Graphics 4400 1Gb
    320Gb HDD (I mainly use a Seagate Firecuda 1Tb SSHD for Linux and Windows)

    Thanks! Much Appreciated.

    Okay, I am on mobile right now, I will post links when I have time later today.
    I found an awesome YT tutorial on how to install Mac OS 10.14 Mojave on PC without a mac. It works until I get to the last step, which is installing the OS in clover configurator. I am going to format the drive again and try the whole process once more. ;)

    Specs: look in my signature. It is the Dell Latitude E5440 on top.

    I successfully installed macrOS on vmware but it is horribly slow, so I'm trying something else. (Which is mentioned above.)

    Why? Is it just better performance and compatibility?

    If you installed it through clover, how did you do it? Mine won't install. It just starts to, then it reboots back to the clover menu...

    I am trying to boot on the one that is mentioned above. I am using an empty HDD that I insert in my main hard drive bay.
    It's my Latitude e5440.

    Also try disabling secure boot and Intel VT-x, and make sure your SATA mode is set to AHCI.
