Question

Hello,

I tried Mackintosh on my old PC, I installed OS X 10.11 and update it. I don't know how to use kexts for iGPU(It have really small VRAM and it's very slow) and onboard LAN.

Next thing I tried was MB{censored} but it doesn't work. Can you guys help me?

We need some more info about your computer/specs. If you are using GMA 3100 that card isn't supported. Sorry.

Can I use some PCI LAN card and some GT GPU? Or some another Motherboard for that C2D or I can't use that CPU?

I didn't say anything about lan. You can use any supported graphics card, cpu should be ok. But again, you need to tell us your specs in order to help you.

I have a E8400 Optiplex 780 still running with Sierra.

I´m using a cheap HP HD 5450 and HD 6350 which are sufficient for office tasks or other not too GPU demanding tasks.

Here is a guide for Clover bootloader and the Optiplex PCs, maybe you can use a few things from there:

2GB RAM is the bare minimum for Sierra, best upgrade to 4GB and maybe consider a small SSD as boot drive too.

As you managed to install Sierra, you already have overcome the biggest obstacles, a macOS compatible PCI-e graphics card should cure most issues with your hack.

The kext for your LAN chip is here:

Always install kexts with kext utility and do repair permissions before restarting.
