    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.

    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:
    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.

    Hi there.
    agree with this 100% -- Running or even attempting to run Mac software as a VM on say a Windows Host isn't worth it -- as pparks1 says just get a refurbished mac if you want the mac experience. Remember though on a Mac using Parallels you can run satisfactorily Windows as a VM.

    You might find some cheap ones too on places like ebay or computer fairs. Sometimes if you are very lucky offices chuck out stuff so you might be able to get an old one from your local tip or re-cycling centre.

    did this a while back, macos 10.12, with a "how to" from Worked pretty well for a while, backed up my iphone & ipad to itunes in it. Played around with it, etc, etc. Then inexplicably my bluetooth mouse started getting screwy, without disire to fix i struggled along, upgrading to vmware 14 killed it. Not bothered since. Overall experience, meh.

    A free alternative is run the W10 VM under macOS using VirtualBox. It works very well indeed.
