'Steve&Bill' - Intel i9-9900k dual boot (macOS/Win10) Hackintosh build

I have been using 17" Mid-2010 i7 3.66 GHz MacBook Pro for over 8 years. I wanted to buy a new MacBook Pro or a desktop Mac since forever but Apple's new computers got more annoying and expensive year by year. I forced myself to get persuaded and buy a new Mac for a very long time but postponed it each time due to my hopes on Apple releasing a reasonable Mac computer with its features and price. No chance, Apple kept disappointing me. However, I never wanted to give up on MacOS X although some features of Win10 was also tempting. So, what could be the ultimate solution? Building a dual-boot Hackintosh! A powerful one...
