How do I virtualize Mac OS X on Windows XP host with VirtualBox?


This is THE thread on the subject in the VBox forums.

Basically, because it's specifically prohibited by Apple (running it virtualised on non-Apple hardware), Sun can't work on making VBox properly compatible with it. This means no Guest Additions, at the very least.

However, it has been done on a basic level by users, albeit with various questionable hacks, and the result is unstable, slow and limited (and it's worse in VMWare, apparently).

  • I'd say Sun can do it legally, but they don't have a huge business case for that, given the limited scope for legal use. – RomanSt Oct 17 '09 at 16:00
