I would like to know if it is possible, (not from a legality standpoint, but from a technical standpoint), to run Mac OS X on a Hyper-V VM. This would make testing so much easier as I would not have to go dig up and old Mac or find someone and borrow their laptop.

you can definitely run it on a VMWare vm running VMWare Player – sebagomez Feb 1 '14 at 19:01

No. Hyper-V is very specific about supported OS's and the generic drivers are very Microsoft specific.

Don't want you to think I went over your head on this one. I was unaware that you had closed a previous version of this as a dupe until I saw it on the related list. I went ahead and deleted the older one. – TheTXI Aug 19 '09 at 17:53
@The TXI - No hard feelings at all. I abide by the older mods and have been on a bit of a closing spree. – BinaryMisfit Aug 19 '09 at 18:02
