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?

Cheers

You need a legit copy of OS X Lion install that on a machine that has compatible hardware go to the Apple store download El Cap use tonymacx86 software to burn the app on a 8+GB flash drive then your good to go keep that stick handy when you wanna reinstall OSX that way you can just install El Cap.
I'm building a Hackintosh this Friday or I might wait till the weekend to build it GPU is coming today rest of the parts won't be here till Thursday Friday at the latest.

trying to install a hackingtosh on a laptop is usually a pain in the ass. It's just not worth the trouble

He's not Applefag though, just a wannabe otherwise you are correct.

If you basically build your own version of an iMac, shouldn't be an issues with OS X right?

Using same type of motherboard, processor, GPU etc

>>52232671
you should use this command from a linux pc to create a bootable stick

sudo dd if=InstallOSXElCapitan.dmg of=/dev/sda bs=1M

>>52232671
I did it in two stages: First get a shitty probably-virus-ridden pre-cracked "distro" ISO and install it. Then use that to create the required files/sticks for a proper installation.
