not allowed to run macos on other then apple hardware, but inside are also intel chips, thats why it is possible to run it on windows – see also “hackintosh”

a fews steps are necessary to host macos in vmware running on windows…

  1. download – vmware player, macos iso or vmware and unlocker
  2. intel vt-x & amd virtualization – enable in bios and vmware settings
  3. vmware player – install software, but do not launch
  4. vmware unlocker  – execute win-install.cmd and “run as administrator.”
  5. macos iso – mount in vmware player and launch

…now your ready to use the macos features right at your finger tips
