This repository contains the files and scripts to install macOS on a modded Intel NUC8i7BEH (Bean Canyon).




  • CPU: Intel i7-8559U, 4c/8t, base 2.7Ghz, turbo 4.5Ghz, 28w TDP.
  • Graphic: intel Iris plus 655 with 128 eDRAM.
  • RAM: Two sockets 260-pin 1.2 V DDR4 SDRAM SO-DIMM (up to 32Gb, and 2400Mhz)
  • LAN: Intel I219V Gigabit Ethernet Controller (10/100/1000 Mbps)
  • Wi-Fi/BT: Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC 9560 (soldered)
  • 1 * Thunderbolt 3 Four lanes 40Gbps, support DisplayPort 1.2 (17Gbps, up to 4096x2304@60Hz), support USB data (10Gbps)
  • 1 * HDMI 2.0a (MegaChips MCDP2800 LSPCon DisplayPort1.2-to-HDMI 2.0 up to 4096x2160@60Hz)
  • 1 * SATA 6 Gbps, 2.5” (540 Mbps)
  • 1 * M.2 connector (key type M and B+M) for 2242 and 2280 modules. Four lanes (4 Gbps)
  • 4 * USB-A 3.1 (gen2 10Gbps). One port can deliver 1.5A
  • 1 * Micro SDXC Card Reader
  • 1 * Jack 3.5mm Realtek HD Audio

My specification

  • 2 * Hynix HMA81GS6AFR8N-UH 8GB DDR4-2400 SODIMM
  • WD Black SN750 NVMe 512G
  • BCM94360CS2 Wi-Fi/Bluetooth with adapter (will explain how)


NUC8i7BEH uses RTS5227S (use pcie x1) chipset for SD card which can be desoldered/replaced with a BCM94360CS2(or BCM942602CS) to get native AirDrop/Handoff support.

Two possible Mods:

Configure BIOS Settings

On my NUC8i7BEH, BIOS version updated to 0071.

The boot menu and BIOS setup can be accessed by mashing the F2 key during BIOS startup. After the main screen comes up choose “Advanced”. That gets you to the main BIOS setup screens.

To start, choose “Load Defaults” (choose from the menu or press F9 in the BIOS setup).

Then change:

  • Boot->Boot Configuration, disable “Network Boot”
  • Power->Secondary Power Settings, “Wake on LAN from S4/S5”, set to “Stay Off”

These settings are important but are already set as needed by “Load Defaults”

  • Devices->Video, “IGD Minimum Memory” set to 64mb or 128mb
  • Devices->Video, “IGD Aperture Size” set to 256mb
  • Boot->Secure Boot, “Secure Boot” is disabled
  • Boot->Boot Priority->Legacy Boot Priority, enable “Legacy Boot” (continue to boot UEFI, but enable legacy for CSM)
    (you will have KP/reboot without it).

The following settings are important for Mod users

  • Devices->Onboard Devices, disable WLAN and Bluetooth
  • Devices->Onboard Devices, enable SD Card to Read/Write as we desoldered/replaced with a BCM94360CS2(or BCM942602CS).

Press F10 to save changes.

Power Management

Everything required for CPU/IGPU power management is already installed with the steps above.
There is no longer any need to use the script.

Be aware that hibernation (suspend to disk or S4 sleep) is not well supported on hackintosh.

You should disable it:

sudo pmset -a hibernatemode 0
sudo rm /var/vm/sleepimage
sudo mkdir /var/vm/sleepimage

Always check your hibernatemode after updates and disable it. System updates tend to re-enable it, although the trick above (making sleepimage a directory) tends to help.
