    Tools to set up a quick macOS VM in QEMU, accelerated by KVM. is the easiest option regardless of your hardware. MacOS is tricky to install on bare metal. Compatibility is spotty with certain motherboards, AMD processors, and Nvidia (no drivers at all unless you use a really old version of the OS). The solution is to add kernel extensions to the bootloader, but that it also a tricky and time consuming process. Installing a minimal Linux and then running macOS in a VM with an AMD graphics card passed through to it is by far the easiest way to get a system running, though you will get a tiny performance loss in terms of wasting some seconds booting Linux before it in turn boots macOS, as well as the ~200MB or so of RAM and HDD that the background Linux will consume.
