How to Install macOS Big Sur on PC: Step by Step Guide

Guide to Install macOS Big Sur on PC or Laptop with Intel or AMD Processors, Supports OpenCore and Clover, Download Link Included for Hackintosh Big Sur Installer.

The newest iteration of macOS 11.0 is known as Big Sur. In this guide, we will show you how to install macOS Big Sur on your PC with the newly released Hackintosh Big Sur Installer.

Advantage of Other Methods VS Hackintosh Big Sur Installer.

  • You do not need a real Mac: All other Hackintoshing methods need to have an existing macOS installation for it to work. This usually means that you either have to find a real Mac, or set up a Mac Virtual Machine. However, with Hackintosh Big Sur Installer, you can just set up everything even from a Windows / Linux computer.
  • The post-installation is easier: By default, Hackintosh Big Sur Installer will automatically install necessary Hackintosh specific kexts and drivers for your computer when you boot your macOS installation for the first time. Other methods require you to do this manually, While the post-installation in Hackintosh Big Sur Installer can cover up most Hackintoshes (you may have to use Install some kexts manually), it is still a nice convenience.
  • Hackintosh Big Sur Installer supports more hardware: Normally other Hackintoshing methods are specific for a Computer Build, but Hackintosh Big Sur Installer can be installed on most computers by Replacing the suitable EFI Folder.

Interested in Installing? Here are the Hackintosh Big Sur requirements.

Big Sur Hackintosh Installer
  • An existing computer with Windows, Linux, or Mac: This is the computer where you will download and set up Hackintosh Big Sur. The computer can run either Windows, Linux, or macOS; any operating system will work.
  • A Hackintosh-compatible computer with an empty hard drive: This is the computer where you will install Hackintosh Big Sur. It can be the same computer as the one mentioned in the previous point. If your computer already has macOS installed, Hackintosh Big Sur will just update macOS normally, without deleting any of your apps or files, but always a fresh installation is recommended. macOS needs its own hard drive partition – a minimum of 45 GB of space is required, but at least 60 GB of space is recommended. It is preferred that you use an empty hard drive for Installing Hackintosh Big Sur.
  • Download Hackintosh Big Sur Installer: Big Sur Installer is a distribution of macOS Big Sur that has been made to work with PCs. You will need to use a BitTorrent client to download the disk image file containing Hackintosh Big Sur, which is a little less than 14 GB in size. You must register on the website to be able to download anything.
  • An empty USB drive (16 GB or larger):In this guide, you will write (port) Hackintosh Big Sur onto a USB drive, and boot your computer from that drive to install Hackintosh Big Sur. The USB drive must be at least 16 GB in size. Since you will need to erase all of the files on the USB drive, make sure to back up its contents first. You can reuse this USB drive for normal stuff after you finish installing Big Sur.
  • Download TransMac: ($48, 15-day free trial): If you are using a Windows computer to set up Hackintosh Big Sur, you need to use TransMac to write the disk image file onto your USB drive. You can just download the free trial.
  • Download Restore Big Sur.pkg: (Free): If you’re using a Mac to set up Hackintosh Big Sur, you need a special “Restore Big Sur” app to write the disk image file onto your USB drive. Again, you must register on the website to be able to download anything.
  • Metal Supported Graphics Card: Metal is the foundation for accelerated graphics and computes on Apple platforms, enabling your apps and games to tap into the incredible power of the GPU. Big Sur requires metal compatible Graphics Card to have full graphics acceleration on macOS. But Metal is not necessary to install macOS.

Creating Hackintosh Big Sur Bootable USB Installer from Windows.

Follow this step if you are setting up Hackintosh Big Sur on Windows. Plug your USB drive into your computer, and open TransMac. Find your USB drive on the left-hand column of the TransMac window.

Find your Plugged Pen Drive in Left Sidebar of TransMac Application

Right-click on the USB drive, and click “Format Disk for Mac”. This will delete all of the files on your drive and prepare it for Hackintosh Big Sur.

Format Disk for Mac
Find your Pen drive and Right Click Select “Format Disk for Mac”
Format Drive for Mac with TransMac Application

After your USB drive is done formatting, exit, and re-open the TransMac application.

Right Click and Select "Restore with Disk Image"
Right Click on your pen drive and select “Restore with Disk Image”

Again right-click on the pen drive and click “Restore with Disk Image”. A file selection window will pop up, Choose your Hackintosh Big Sur disk image file (it will probably be called “Hackintosh Shop Big Sur.dmg”), and proceed. Now, TransMac will write Hackintosh Big Sur onto your USB drive.

Wait for Hackintosh Restore to Complete
Wait for Restore to Complete

This will probably take 20 to 40 minutes, though it may take longer, depending on the speed of your Pen drive. Once TransMac finishes, your Pen drive will contain a fully bootable version of the Big Sur Hackintosh installer.

Creating Bootable Hackintosh Big Sur USB Installer from Linux.

Preparing Big Sur bootable USB from Linux is tricky, First, you have to uncompress the downloaded dmg, then write it to Pen drive.

Install dmg2img with yum or apt from Terminal

sudo apt-get install dmg2img
sudo yum install dmg2img

First, uncompress Big Sur DMG with DMG2IMG, Then restore the uncompressed image to Pen drive.
Change the variables below as you need.
Warning: The following is just an example do not copy and paste.

sudo dmg2img -v -i /path/to/'Hackintosh Shop Big Sur.dmg' -o /path/to/'Hackintosh Shop Big Sur Uncompressed.dmg'
sudo dd if=/path/to/'Hackintosh Shop Big Sur Uncompressed.dmg' of=/dev/sdb bs=1M

Creating Hackintosh Big Sur Bootable USB Installer from Mac.

Follow this step if you are setting up Hackintosh Installer on a Mac or existing Hackintosh. Plug your USB drive into Mac, and open Disk Utility (located in Applications->Utilities in your main hard drive). Select your USB drive in the sidebar of Disk Utility and erase the drive, with the “Format” set to “Mac OS Extended (Journaled)” format. You can rename the drive any way you want.

Select Pen drive from External section of Disk Utility Sidebar – Restore Big Sur

Select the main USB Device, “SanDisk Ultra USB 3.0 Media” as in the example above.

Erase Pen drive for Hackintosh Big Sur
Erase pen drive – Restore Big Sur

Erase USB as “Mac OS Extended (Journaled) format” & as “Master Boot Record” Scheme.

Next, make sure that your Hackintosh Shop Big Sur.dmg disk image file is in the same folder as Restore Big Sur.pkg. If “Restore Big Sur.pkg” is still in a ZIP file, double-click that file to unzip it.

Hackintosh Shop Big Sur
Make Sure Hackintosh Shop Big Sur.dmg and Restore Big Sur.pkg in Same folder.

Double click on “Restore Big Sur.pkg” to start the app. By default, the app will be aimed at your computer’s main hard drive (mine is named “Mac” in the picture below). You do not want this instead, click through the installer until you reach the page with the “Change Install Location” button.

Change Install Location – Restore Big Sur
Select Install on a specific disk Big Sur Hackintosh
Select “Install on a specific disk” – Restore Big Sur

From here, change the install location of the app to your USB drive (mine is named “Big Sur” in the picture below).

Select Destination Volume Big Sur Installation Hackintosh
Select Pen drive volume from list of Volumes – Restore Big Sur

Press the enter/return key. The app will ask for your system password. After you enter your password, it will begin writing the Hackintosh Big Sur disk image onto the USB drive.

This will probably take 20-40 minutes, though it may take longer, depending on the speed of your USB drive & Computer. Once it finishes, your USB drive will contain a fully customizable bootable version of the Big Sur Hackintosh installer.

NOTE: “Restore Big Sur.pkg” is very glitchy. If you can not find the “Change Install Location” button on the first time that you run the app, restart your computer, and re-run the app.

Making Big Sur Installer Bootable

Hackintosh Big Sur Installer has customizable EFI Partition, Where you can Install OpenCore, Clover or any UEFI Bootloader that could boot Mac.

You can find pre-build EFI Folders from Hackintosh Big Sur Bootloaders Downloads section.

All you have to do is find a suitable Hackintosh EFI Folder to Boot Big Sur, Extract it and Copy it to BOOTLOADER Partition, It makes the USB Bootable.

Avoid including Network, Audio and Unnecessary kexts into UEFI Bootloader, You can Install them later.

Here are some common EFI Bootloaders that you can use to Install.

Intel 100 Series & Intel 200 Series Clover/OpenCore

  • Intel Z170 Chipset
  • Intel Q170 Chipset
  • Intel H170 Chipset
  • Intel Q150 Chipset
  • Intel B150 Chipset
  • Intel H110 Chipset
  • Intel X299 Chipset
  • Intel Z270 Chipset
  • Intel H270 Chipset
  • Intel Q270 Chipset
  • Intel Q250 Chipset
  • Intel B250 Chipset

Intel 300 Series & Intel 400 Series Clover/OpenCore

If you have already have a bootloader in your EFI Partition, Copy that EFI folder into BOOTLOADER Partition.

Set up your motherboard’s UEFI BIOS for Hackintosh Big Sur.

Essentially, the BIOS (or UEFI) is the settings page for your computer’s motherboard. From here, you can fiddle with how your computer hardware works.
It is often necessary to change a few basic settings in the BIOS or UEFI to get macOS up and running. The BIOS standard is generally used by motherboards from before 2012, while the UEFI standard is used by motherboards made after that, Big Sur Hackintosh Installer only supports UEFI Based BIOS.

  • To access BIOS/UEFI Setup, press and hold the Delete button on a USB Keyboard while the system is booting up.
  • Load Optimized Defaults.
  • Set USB drive to the highest boot priority.
  • If your CPU supports VT-d, disable it.
  • Disable CFG-Lock.
  • Set SATA to AHCI
  • Disable Secure Boot Mode
  • If your system has OS Type, set it to Other OS.
  • Set OS Type to Other OS.
  • Save and exit.

Read more about UEFI Boot Process.

Boot into Hackintosh Big Sur

Restart your Computer, and plug in your Hackintosh Big Sur USB drive. If things go well, your computer will boot from the USB drive instead of booting from your normal hard disk. You will then be able to view the Hackintosh Big Sur Bootloader menu.

If you do not manage to reach the Hackintosh Big Sur Bootloader menu, check your motherboard’s BIOS settings to make sure that the changes you made in Step 6 were properly applied. If they were, but you still cannot boot from the Hackintosh Big Sur USB drive, unplug your USB drive, and go back to previous steps. Reformat your USB drive with Disk Utility and try again. If all else fails, try using a different USB drive for Hackintosh Big Sur.

At the Hackintosh Big Sur Boot menu, press the enter key (or return key) to start the macOS BigSur installer. The installer screen will take several minutes to load.

BigSur Installer Booting

In the worst-case scenarios, instead of loading the Mac OS installer, you may end up at a dark gray screen that tells you to restart your computer (a kernel panic), or you may end up with a small crossed-out sign (a loading error).

If you get a kernel panic/loading error (or if the Mac OS installer simply won’t start within 10 minutes), you’ll need to enter some boot flags or make changes to EFI Bootloader. To enter boot flags, manually restart your computer by pressing your computer’s power button. Then, once you’ve booted back into the Hackintosh BigSur Options menu, try typing any necessary boot flags before pressing the enter/return key. Check out our list of common boot flags and our guide to fixing boot problems with verbose mode for reference.

Install Hackintosh Hackintosh Big Sur

Once you’ve entered the Hackintosh Big Sur installer, you will come up to a hard disk selection page. This is where you choose where you want to install Big Sur.

If you’re installing BigSur on a computer that has never been turned into a Hackintosh before (i.e. doesn’t already have Catalina, Mojave, High Sierra, Sierra, or El Capitan installed), there won’t be any hard disk options to select. We’ll have to fix that. To do this, start-up Disk Utility, which is located under the Utilities menu in the top bar.

You need to use Disk Utility to erase a hard drive partition so that macOS BigSur can install itself on it. In the sidebar of Disk Utility, choose the hard drive partition where you want Big Sur installed, and erase it by using the “Erase” tab. You can also just erase the entire hard drive. In the screenshot below, my two hard drive partition is called “UNTITLED”, while my entire hard drive is called “Apple SSD macOS-0 SSD Media”.

When erasing, the format should be set to “APFS” & Scheme to “GUID Partition Scheme”. You can also partition the hard disk by using Disk Utility’s Partition tab.

On the installation page for macOS, the hard disk/disk partition should now be showing up. Select it, and then click the “Customize” button on the bottom left. From this menu you will be able to Install Bootloader straight from the macOS BigSur installer.

If your computer already has macOS installed and you are simply updating it to Big Sur, macOS treats Big Sur as an update, as Kexts Schemes changed you might need to Install Kexts manually into EFI Partition

Once you’re done with the “Customize” page, install Big Sur. This will take at least 30 minutes. Your Computer might restart several times during the Installation.

  5. Randy Brinkman

    So I’m confused… I go to download the installer (which here in the guide says is a little less than 6GB in size) but in Bittorrent, it shows it as a 12GB file. After the download is complete, there is no .dmg file, and both the .zip folder, and the folder after extraction is showing only 124kb. I downloaded it again, and got the same results. Advice?

    1. macOS

      Actually the size is around 12GB, Of course its a DMG file, Check the Extension of the downloaded file.

    2. Nia

      The zip is for torrent download
      The file in the zip is torrent so you need qtorrent to download it
      Please follow the whole procedure or just watch this video

    ive played around many different methods provided by other sites and tubes.. none worked for me.. it was easy to set up and install when i started with this but after i tried other methods and failed.. back to this ( clover runs slow as my pc spec ) thats the reason i wanted to try Open core but getting stuck at boot
