    any way to run MacOS in a VM with an AMD processor?

    So i want to run macOS High Sierra or Mojave in a VM on my windows PC.
    I watched a load of tutorials online, and none worked. i then read that you can't run macOS, even in a VM, with an AMD processor, and i have an fx 6300.
    Is there really no way at all for me to run a VM with macOS?

    Some time back Apple did switch the PowerPC over to Intel CPUs, story at the time was they couldn't get more speed out of the older machines. But as far as I know Apple never worked with AMD CPUs but they did work with Intel 64-bit processors, I had a mid-2010 MacBook Pro with an Intel i7 CPU, hard drive controller failed and too pricey to repair.

    High Sierra 10.13.1 VM for VMWare Player 14 for Ryzen/FX/APU processors - Page 14AMD OS X
    MacOS Sierra on VMWare (On Windows + AMD processor) - macOS 10.12 (Sierra) - InsanelyMac Forum
    and many more from these forums

    A lot of people managed to install macos in vm on ryzen system; however, it looks like more complicated than installing on intel machine. Not having amd proc, I cannot test it myself... If you have intel machine (core2 duo & 4GB RAM is sufficient), you can start installing macos in vmware player here as a training - patching/unlocking vmware player, making changes to vmx file, creating high sierra iso... After some learning and studying, you can try to step up to installing macos at amd system.
