I tried for a few days to install High Sierra on my Ryzen (main rig), but despite my valiant efforts, I was rejected at the gate. I don't want do keep my main rig out of operation while I tinker on a AMD hackintosh.
So, I realized I have two choices, and I need your help/expertise in deciding.
1. Try to install Sierra on an older system I have laying around, but the chief problem is that the processor is a AMD A6-9500, which doesn't have the SSE4.1 required for High Sierra+.
But, I can dabble with it, as time allows, without issue. But, I find very little in the way of guides, etc, so that is a big negative. The CPU is trash, only cost me 30 quid, and only bought it like 90% of the people that bought it, to update BIOS on a board, so that I can use a Ryzen on it. =/
2. I pony up some cash, and buy some new hardware, namely another ryzen processor (I will get a new Video Card as well, because from what I have read a AMD RX 570 seems decent for the price, and less headaches than Nvidia. I am not really gaming from the macos, anyway. And, return to High Sierra installations.
What would you guys recommend?? 1 or 2?
