Step 1 Extract the OS X Once you done that, you will see three folders created at the location you have extracted the file. VMware Unlocker i?? Hardware Virtualization Bypasser folder is for people who have legacy machines that doesni?? It should includes support for VMware Workstation 7 and 8. If you have Workstation 9 then it would also work, just run the unlocker for WMware Workstation 8 and you should be good to go. Run install. Alternatively you can also try to use this VMware Unlocker if it has failed on you.
Start VMware Workstation, Ii?? If you are running VMware Workstation 9. You will see an option to upgrade this virtual machine. You can do that to make this Virtual Machine more compatible with your latest Workstation. Alternatively, you can discard the message. AMD's latest CPUs, from the ' Bulldozer ' architecture onwards, contain almost all the latest instruction sets, and hence, some kernels with full SSE4 support have also been released. It also has a custom kernel that allows Intel Atom processors to boot into Mavericks.
Niresh's was the only free distro that was released for Mavericks, since the iAtkos Team decided to release their Mavericks distro for specific hardware on donation basis. After the initial release of OS X Yosemite Some time later, Niresh an independent OSx86 developer released a standalone tool known as Yosemite Zone, which would automatically install the new OS and other various features on a non-Apple device with minimal input.
This method consisted of torrenting an OS X Unibeast was updated to support Yosemite,  and a distribution of Yosemite Zone was released with AMD processor support. This type installation uses as few kexts drivers as possible in addition to using an unaltered version of the OS X installation app, and is preferred over distributions.
Both Clover and Chameleon were updated to be compatible with El Capitan. Clover and Chameleon were updated to be compatible with Sierra.
Clover, MacPwn  and UniBeast  were updated to support it. Clover was updated to support Mojave with revision The company used technical means although not the Trusted Platform Module , or TPM, as has been widely mis-reported  , to tie Mac OS to the systems it distributed to developers after announcing its switch to Intel's chips.
Throughout the years, many "distros" were released for download over the Internet. Installing Hortonworks Sandbox 2. Install the VMware Tools to optimize your system. But i have some doubts After a moment, it will take you to the OS X. And for Workstation 9 there is no patch available.
Specifically, Apple charged Psystar with acquiring or creating code that "avoids, bypasses, removes, descrambles, decrypts, deactivates or impairs a technological protection measure without Apple's authority for the purpose of gaining unauthorized access to Apple's copyrighted works. On November 13, , the court granted Apple's motion for summary judgment and found Apple's copyrights were violated as well as the DMCA when Psystar installed Apple's operating system on non-Apple computers.
A hearing on remedies was set for December On May 15, , the case Apple vs. Psystar Corporation finally ended. The court ruled that Psystar had "violated Apple's exclusive reproduction right, distribution right, and right to create derivative works,"  putting an end to the case.
Rosetta , a binary translator that made it possible to run PowerPC programs on Intel processors, and later the kernel itself required the support of the SSE3 instruction set. To circumvent this, programmers in the community released patched kernels, which included support for emulating SSE3 instructions using SSE2 equivalents.
In October , Apple released update Efforts were also made to emulate the SSSE3 instruction set for processors that did not support it. Extensible Firmware Interface EFI is a specification that defines a software interface between an operating system and platform firmware. Since this method generally does not require copying or modification of macOS, it is considered [ by whom? In early November , a group of hackers fronted by a Russian hacker known as Netkas , using an already modified Boot source root from David Elliot also known as dfe ,  developed a method  of emulating an EFI environment using a specially modified Darwin bootloader.
Several methods for real world deployment of this innovative solution have arisen around the Internet. An explanation of this achievement along with a usage guide was provided by the website DigitMemo. Using the EFI patch, a Hackintosh could boot off " vanilla " unmodified macOS kernels and use vanilla kernel extensions. This not only allowed the system to be compatible with future system updates, but also offered increased stability.
In mid, a new commercial product, EFi-X, was released that claims to allow full, simple booting off official Leopard install disks, and a subsequent install, without any patching required, but this is possibly a repackaging of Boot technology in a USB -attached device. It was thought [ by whom? MSI announced the Efinity mainboard in early Boot is a bootloader provided by Apple for loading the XNU kernel.
The Boot bootloader essentially preloads an environment on the system from which Leopard can boot and operate. The bootloader stores the necessary files kext files in a. The bootloader behaves like the Linux kernel: one can use an mboot-compatible a patched syslinux was used for the hack bootloader that tells boot-dfe about the.
Since the early developer builds of Mac OS X v Chameleon is based on David Elliot's Boot It allows to boot up macOS on non-Macintosh hardware. Chameleon supports a lot of AMD as well as Nvidia graphics cards.
There are a lot of branches of it by different developers. Chameleon is currently in the 2. This system was invented by Intel and is currently in active open source development at TianoCore. Also, newer motherboards already contain EFI but it is not suitable for running a Macintosh. It was easier to produce; requiring only a single script to be added to an existing installation.
Distributions of the live DVD have been made since its inception.
Since then, it is notable that this method has been shown to work on normal Apple Mac hardware. It is also possible to run macOS as a virtual machine inside other operating systems installed on standard PC hardware, by using virtualization software such as Oracle's VirtualBox   though this is not officially supported by Oracle .
Likewise, it is also possible to install macOS on VMware software, though the company states it is only officially supported for VMware running on Apple-labeled computers according to Apple's licensing policies.
