Got some quick Hackintosh questions for you, /g/.
I've fairly experienced with Windows and Linux distros, but I want to expand the horizon by including OS X.
I ordered a Multicom Talisa U731 (http://www.multicom.no/multicom-talisa-u731-133-full-hd/cat-p/c/p10632082) and I was initially planning on simply dualbooting Elementary/Windows 10 on it, but since I work in retail selling computers, including Macs fairly soon, I wanted to get used to the OS I'll be showing off. Thus comes a few questions.
1: I've been looking through a decent amount of tutorials, but the only thing I can find about how to create a working bootable USB drive with OS X on it, is that I have to actually own an OS X based device. I do not have this at hand, nor do I know anyone who can lend me such a device. Is there another method of creating a bootable device without having access to an OS X device?
As in, is it possible to simply have an ISO-esque file with OS X in it and dump it on a USB drive, much like with Windows and Linux? If so, where do I get a working ISO that isn't sketchy as fuck, I.e., preferably not from a shitty torrent site.
2: Aforementioned laptop has a Skylake CPU, which apparently only got support in later additions to the El Capitan version. Has anyone tried using OS X on a Skylake-based system? Should I wait until Apple releases official Skylake Macs?
In general, are there any other incompatibilities with the laptop?
3: Last question, ties in a bit with the first one, mostly for simplicity sake: I usually have a USB drive lying around which has a few distros and Windows ISOs + tools on it which I created using YUMI. Would it be possible to add OS X in the mix?
