Running Mac OS X on Windows

By Wei-Meng Lee
ISBN: 0-596-52843-4
48 pages, PDF Price: $7.99 USD

Despite Apple’s move to Intel’s CPU architecture, if you want to run Mac OS X on your current PC hardware, the only logical way to do it is to run it in an emulator. In this Short Cut, you will learn how to install Mac OS X on your PC using PearPC, an open source emulator that emulates the PowerPC architecture. I’ll walk you through all of the steps needed to successfully get Mac OS X working, as well as show you how to configure additional settings to make Mac OS X functional.

Popular virtualization software such as Virtual PC and VMware have long been on the market, but none support running Mac OS X on Windows. PearPC fills the void. It emulates the PowerPC architecture by using a JIT (Just-in-Time) emulator to translate PowerPC code into x86 code. The PearPC installation takes time, but if you follow the instructions in this Short Cut you’ll soon have Mac OS X running on Windows.
