Install Mac Os On Pc Using Virtualbox

Although Macs can run Mac OS X, Windows and Linux with little effort PCs can't run Mac OS X without special software. While you can't boot to Mac OS X from your PC's hard drive you can run Mac OS X from within Windows using VirtualBox, an application designed to virtualize operating systems. VirtualBox creates virtual machines, which function identical to physical computers but are more flexible. To install Mac OS X on a PC with VirtualBox, confirm your computer has virtualization technology enabled, then set up a new virtual machine for the Mac OS.


1. Click "Start." Input "devmgmt.msc" into the search bar. Press "Enter" to launch Device Manager.

2. Expand "Processors" and double-click the CPU device, then check the "Manufacturer" field to determine whether the CPU is AMD or Intel.

3. Close Device Manager, then download "Intel Processor Identification Utility" or "AMD Virtualization Technology and Microsoft Hyper-V System Compatibility Check Utility," depending on which manufacturer developed your CPU.

4. Launch the download and install the program if required. If either program indicates that virtualization technology is not enabled on the PC, restart the computer.

5. Press the setup key as indicated on the screen to go to system setup. Follow the instructions on the Windows Virtual PC site at to configure the virtualization settings in system setup.

6. Download EmpireEFI for Intel or AMD depending on which processor your computer comes installed with.

7. Launch VirtualBox and click "New." Click "Next," then enter a name for the Mac OS X virtual machine.

8. Select "Mac OS X" from the "Operating System" and "Version" drop-down menus. Click "Next."

9. Set the base memory to at least one gigabyte. Click "Next," then check "Boot Hard Disk (Primary Master)." Click "Create New Hard Disk," then click "Next" and click "Next" again.

10. Select "Fixed Size Storage," then click "Next." Select a location for the hard disk data file or create a new folder. Set the storage size to 20 GB. Click "Next," then click "Finish."

11. Click "Finish" again to create a new virtual machine for Mac OS X in VirtualBox. Click "Settings" to edit the virtual machine.

12. Go to the "Display" tab and check "Enable 3D Acceleration." Set the video memory as high as possible.

13. Click "System." Clear "Enable EFI," then check "Enable IO APIC." Go to the "Processor" tab, then check "Enable PAE/NX." Go to "Acceleration," then check "Enable VT-x/AMD-V" and "Enable Nesting Page."

14. Return to "Motherboard." Check "CD/DVD-ROM," then click the up arrow to move it to the top. Click "OK" to close the settings window.

15. Use a program like Daemon Tools, Virtual CloneDrive or Magic ISO to mount the EmpireEFI ISO file. Select the program from the task bar, then point to a virtual drive. Select the option to mount the image, then double-click the EmpireEFI file.

16. Launch the new virtual machine. Insert the Mac OS X DVD into the DVD drive.

17.Right-click the "EmpireEFI" CD icon when the EmpireEFI screen loads. Select the disc drive containing the Mac OS X DVD. Press "F5," then press "Enter," when the DVD has loaded.
