    Install Mac OS X

    Be aware that installing any Mac OS on non Apple hardware is contrary to Apple's EULA. Running on a virtual machine is permitted but only if the host is a Mac.

    Typically, this involves running a hacked copy of OSX on VMWare. And it runs terrible (performance wise). And it's against the Apple EULA.

    Some pages about how-to:
    add macOS to virtual drive on windows at DuckDuckGo
    Be aware older Mac OS X versions and the latest [renamed] macOS Sierra, use HFS+ drive formatting and don't do well natively with NTFS drive/partitioning formatting. Windows, Linux and Mac can all use FAT32 or exFAT. FAT32 has a 32GB limit in Windows along with the 4GB single file size limit, exFAT doesn't.

    After having played with Mac OSX in a virtual machine, as well as years ago building a hackintosh using an EFI-X chip, I cannot strongly recommend enough that if you want the Mac experience, just buy a Mac. Look at the Mac refurb site, as well as at Mac Mini's to keep your cost down.

    The beauty of the mac is the hardware as well as the OS together. I never had a positive experience with any OSX vm or hackintosh, but i have very much enjoyed my MacBook Pro for the last 3 years. As good today, as it was 3 years ago. No reformats, no clean up utilities, and no maintenance on my part. It just works.

    My MacBook Pro from Mid-2010 with an Intel Core i7 started with Snow Leopard, now up to the latest macOS Sierra.

    I'll put my hands up and admit to breaking the Mac EULA by running OS X 10.11 in VMware Workstation 11 a couple of times. I found the various online instructions too complicated, so I downloaded a (prob illegal) pre-built VM image.

    Did it work - yes
    Was it worth it - no

    I found navigating a different GUI, installing software etc a PITA - not unlike my previous forays into Linux. It was a relief to turn OSX off and get back into Windows.

    Hi there

    please note if you run any OS under a VM on windows using say VMware you can always run its native file system such as EXT4 on a Linux VM by attaching the HDD as a physical VM. You'll need obviously the boot drive of the VM to run a file system supported by windows but a physical drive attached to the VM can run ANY file system supported by that VM's OS whether or not it runs on Windows --and by doing that you will often improve the performance of the VM.

    Cheers

    You basically can check if other people have been successful with installing MacOSX with certain components (or pre-built pc's or laptops). If your component is not listed, it doesn't mean it's not compatible, it just means that no one has posted a successful install method (there are at least hundreds, if no thousands, of install method combinations. So finding one that works can be extremely difficult). Long story short, it's not easy, and you have to become somewhat of an expert on the subject, or buy a pre-built computer (ex: a Dell with the exact model number of a successful install method), and follow the install method exactly. Either way, you WILL run into problems, and will have to troubleshoot. Better info here: https://www.cleverfiles.com/howto/in...mac-on-pc.html
    Good Luck!

    I'd find a place that sells used Mac laptops or iMac's. Buy one of those and learn a bit about Apple. You get the whole experience this way.
