TOPIC: Install Mac on PC

Re: Install Mac on PC 14 years 2 months ago #9778

This is something I'm dying to do.. I've heard about PearPC, but I don't know whether it works natively or how the heck it deals with an x86 architecture instead of PowerPC...

Anyone care to shed light?

PearPC is worth using only in order to get familiar with the Mac OS X interface. It works in windows or linux and allows you to install Mac OS X but only that, not any programs (from my experience). If anyone is interested i would advise him to try the osx86 project, or even better buy a Mac mini :)
By the way, Mac OS X is sweeeeeet.....

PearPC is basically a PowerPC emulator which runs on Windows and *nix and can host Mac OS X, Darwin and Mandrake for the PowerPC.

However, as I mentioned in an earlier post, with the move of Apple to the x86 platform and the ( ) project which shows you how to run Mac OS X natively on non-Apple x86 hardware, the future of PearPC seems unclear.


Oops! Sorry, The_Berzerker's post just slipped in before mine but we're both saying the same thing.

The Apple Developer kit version of MacOSX x86 was indeed cracked and videos of the OS running on an Intel machine were posted on the Internet.

Here is a link providing a detailed guide on how to install Mac OS X86 on your PC.
