    My laptop is a Acer TravelMate B115 and I've tried tutorials from YouTube but I couldn't even boot up the installer correctly. It has Intel x64 processor so would it be possible to install it? If so could you point me to a tutorial?

    You have to have a VERY specific motherboard/processor setup if you're using a laptop. OS X doesn't play nicely with non-native parts and it's usually very difficult to get a hackintosh working unless you build a desktop specifically. However, if you want to take a crack at it, start here. TonyMacx86 is an absolutely invaluable resource if you're going to join the Hackintosh community

    Also you'll need this guide to install it. I'd start with Mountain Lion and then if that works try installing El Capitan: http://www.tonymacx86.com/mountain-...untain-lion-any-supported-intel-based-pc.html

    Using a laptop to go Hackintosh is really tricky, like TotalInsanity4 said you would be better off building a PC with the required parts to build a Hackintosh

    Not even worth the try. If you want to start a Hackintosh Rig so badly refer to http://www.tonymacx86.com/
    That site has the best and most recent tutorials, so for a Hackintosh I recommend at least an i5. Oh, and you
    probably also need a friend with a Mac to create an ISO image from the official Mavericks ROM that you can
    get directly from Apple which free like Windows 10. The only difference is that Windows 10 sucks.

    Or he could use a Niresh distro if he's desperate
