Hi bro…your article seems to be very awesome….just want to ask that I have 6gb ram, core i3 5th generation 2 gb integrated graphics, will this run smoothly on it.. REPLY FAST thnx

Hi Karar,

Thanks for again a great tutorial!!

A problem I had with many tries to setup more Mac versions is this one:

When you have to choose on which drive you want the system being installed,
the HDD that I’ve totally cleaned for the installation doesn’t show up in disk utilities.

I already tried to make the hard drive ready for the Mac OS by using Transmac with
it’s function “format disk for Mac” but that didn’t help either.

Maybe I have to use a particular boot flag?

Anyone who knows a solution for this problem?

Thanks in advance for any reaction!!
