    Hi guys,

    i’ve been wondering if someone tried to install MacOs on a Ezbook?

    Would it be possible?

    sure no problem and then you slap a big apple logo on the back and sell it with 300% profit.

    Joking aside, it does look possible, i sadly lack a Mac to create the bootable usb and Vms are not recommended

    Mojave looks pretty nice, i’ll see if there is any workaround

    No. Atoms and Celerons, and Intel HD Graphics on those processors are not supported and are a waste of time.

    sure you can, I even run win 8 in a n3450 and that is blocked from MS and Intel.
    with the right tools and tricks everything is possible.

    the question is: is the outcome worth the work

    I have an EzBook 3 plus, sports the same core m3-7y30 from the  small MacBook line, and graphics should be the same, i’ll keep you guys posted if i find a workaround

    I got the Ezbook Plus last week. Today I installed Mojave, still trying to get the trackpad to work.

    Did any of you got the trackpad working?

    No but for that I use a small wifi comfast usb adapter.

    You can also get an AC one or if your laptop has an extra M2 slot you can install a macbook wifi BT card with an adapter.

    Intel wireless AC is not supported. Bluetooth is working no need for usb adapter!

    If you have a Mac or a  hacintosh you can download it from the macOS Apple Store and then create a boot usb drive with EFI/clover. I do not advise you to downloaded mojave from some weird site.

    I didn’t  have enough time to see that on macOS, I installed windows again and also tried Linux MX. I will probably order another M2 ssd just for macOS testing.

    Battery should be ok, the ezbook Plus only has the intel iGPU if you also have a dedicated gpu like the MX150 sometimes the managment between the 2 is not great for battery life. Also mojave does not support some nvidia gpus only high sierra (Metal and Cuda related).
