Hi Dan,

I have built 6 years ago a Hackintosh computer based on a (nowadays) old Foxconn H55 MS motherboard with and (nowadays) old Intel i7 processor.
Working on this desktop machine (12 GB RM, 512 GB SSD) is even now still a pleasure beside the fact that I own a real MacBook Pro i7 which I use when I am on the road. The machine is booting Windows 10 Pro, Mac OS X El Captain and Ubuntu flawless (although configuration the Clover Bootloader took me a little more time than expected).

The good thing is that nowadays Mac OS X is free available. The only thing I would advise you when you start to build a Hackintosh is to go buy a motherboard from GigaByte (UEFI Bios) which is nowadays much closest to the specs of an iMac etc. For Wifi/Bluetooth compatibility buy an PCIe Broadcomm card (native Apple support).
For video stay to NVDIA (http://www.macbreaker.com/2012/06/hackintosh-graphics-cards.html).
Use Clover Bootloader for installation bootloader. 
A lot of information you can find on TonyMac which is one of the first pioneers: https://www.tonymacx86.com/
I have passed in the beginning all the failures and successes… so if you encounter any problems just contact me if you need help.

Most important: Yes, LiveCode (all versions) have worked on this machine without any problems.

Goodluck,
Erik

    Greetings!
    
    Has anyone built their own Hackintosh computer?  If so, have you had any trouble working with XCode, iTunes Connect, Apple Developer tools, getting apps approved, etc.   I would like to build one (I’m not in love with Apple’s pre-built choices), but don’t want any hassles down the road.  I wouldn’t put it past Apple to disallow an app if it wasn’t developed/built on an Apple Certified Mac.
