I need to compile some final code for AR and graphics development for the Apple platform – especially the iPad tablet, but l cannot bring myself to spend the money needed for an entry level Apple laptop of apple mac mini which for the same amount of money, due to a lack of decent graphics card or memory or storage – compared to similar systems that run Windows 10 or Linux, so l decided to look into a hackintosh. It would have been nice in my view if Apple provided xcode development support on the iPad Pro at least.
Below shows screenshots taken as l worked on this using Windows 10 and Linuxmint, as well as Oracles Virtualbox.
- the OS virtual image vmdk file was initially a 8.1Gb file, it became a 23Gb file by the time Catalina loaded up
- It took about 14 mins for the first time for Catalina to initially start up.
- Virtual Machine [VM] settings was for 4 processors, 128Mb Video ram, 8192Mb , USB 3 – allocated out of my host laptops resources.
End Result so far – Oracle Virtualbox on an Alienware 17R5 running Windows 10 2004 release
Try to get an fairly used Windows PC desktop lying around, with a GTX560 – to run Catalina
