Any Hackintosh help out there would be appreciated?

Standard

My 2009 iMac has been running slow is fine for basic things, but for trying to render video it takes forever. (\maybe about an hour and a half for 3 minutes.)
Anyways, long story short, I bought a used ASUS ROG laptop from Newegg, because I couldn’t justify spending the extra money for a MacBook pro, let alone a refurbished one. The other day I finished the El Capitan installer download and have it on the usb drive.

I’ve been following the installation instructions, and I get to the disk utility part, and when I go to erase the partition that I want El Capitan on, it says it’s done/error, the partition is formatted for mac but somehow becomes full al of a sudden. I tried the same thing with another partition and it basically did the same thing, but I as able to get it back so Windows was able to recognize it.
I still have the one partition that’s basically full that’s Mac Formatted. Since it’s formatted for mac it won’t show up in windows
Is there a terminal command I can use to fix this problem?

Camera Question for all of you photographers out there.

Topic – compact ilc cameras

In February, our church is planning on going on a missions trip to Costa Rica to help missionaries that we are sponsoring.
Anyways, to the matter at hand.
I really wasn’t on planning to take my Canon Rebel T2i with me because it is big and bulky and yeah, just carrying that around with everything that we’d be doing might no be a good idea.

So I’ve been thinking about ilc cameras. Basically it’s like a dslr but in a compact camera body. I’m not too familiar with these so I’ve been doing my research, and that’s another reason why I am asking all of you for your opinion/advice/help.
I’m not looking to spend a huge fortunate, but I would like some good quality pictures (not saying the a kodak easy share isn’t bad, but I might want to put this into focus.)
I’m not sure if anyone else has anything better they’ve found, but after doing research one that I like in particular s the Sony a5000. It seems compact, and even with the kit lens when turned off it compacts to 30mm, which is crazy! Stereo sound too!

The one thing that I’ve read aboutt that I like is that you can download apps through the camera like a time-lapse add-on and such, but my question is do they get downloaded to the sd card that you have in the camera or does it go into the internal memory of the camera?

The Sony a6000 looks great, but it’s the price tag. I’ve found the a5000 for about 398 which isn’t too bad, though I”m maybe seeing if I can find it cheaper (Buying just the body and a separate lens on eBay looks like it might be around the same price.)

Any advice/anything else would be greatly appreciated!

I don’t really think I want to go just point and shoot since I want also quality, but also video quality as well.

Edit – Even though I won’t be using this camera a lot, would you suggest I go with an ilc or Point and Shoot?

What you can do with a dollar?

My sister’s cool, and you can trust me on this. Why am I telling you this? Because, she’s going on a trip to Brazil with World Vision. To go, she needs to raise $175 dollars, by like tomorrow? Or next week? I can’t remember, but here’s the link http://www.gofundme.com/7q2t74

Seriously, what else would you use a dollar for? Ok, Maybe quite a bit, but nothing would last quite like this. If you want, you can even donate more than a dollar! She’ll send you a virtual high five! even better!
