What you will need to run Mac OS X EI Capitan

There are few things which you will need for installation. But first you need to make sure that your laptop or pc supports Intel Virtualization technology because this is a necessity to run Mac OS X Capitan on Windows 10 and most new laptops and pc which comes with i3 and above processors have this feature.

You will require following softwares:-

1. VMware Workstation 12
2. Mac OS X EI Capitan
3. Unlocker 2.08

You have to enable Intel virtualization technology (Intel VT-X) from Bios. If your pc, doesn't supports Intel VT-X, then you won't be able to install Mac OS on your Windows operating system.




Steps to install Mac OS X on Windows 10/8/7 PC

Below mentioned are the steps which you need to follow in order to install Mac OSX on Windows 10/8/7 pc:-

1.Install VMware Workstation Pro Version 12 for Windows

First you have to download and install VMware Workstation 12 on your system


Once you are done with the installation process, open VMware Workstation Pro and in the home tab, click Create a New Virtual Machine and follow on screen instructions.

2. Download the Mac OS X EI Capitan file

First you have to download Mac OS X EI Capitan file. This is a Winrar file. So I hope you have WINRAR already installed on your pc. Once you are done with the download, extract all files on your desktop.





Plug in the USB drive or hard disk on which you want to install the OS. You need to take care that you select the proper corresponding disk while completing the installation process.

Once we have all the files extracted on the desktop, go to the Unlocker, the second last file is win-install, right click it select run as administrator. A console window will open. Just wait for that, once that is done (it will disappear automatically), then go to desktop where you have extracted all the files and click on OS X 10.11 EI as shown in the image.

You will get a message "Cannot connect the virtual device sata0:1 because no corresponding device is available on the host. Do you want to try to connect this virtual device every time you power on the virtual machine?". Simply select yes. You will get another window just click Ok on it.

Then you will get an another window which will ask How do you want to close the virtual machine. Just click on Power off button and then close that window by pressing the red cross in top right corner.

You will get an other window like the one I below.

Just click on Take Owner ship button as shown below.


After clicking on Take Ownership button you will you will get this window. Just click yes on it as shown below.


You will get another window click Ok on it and now we should have the Mac system running on our Windows Pc or laptop with help of VMware.



If you want you can make it full screen on your PC, but I don't do that because it will have some kind of glitches and the mouse seems to get stuck inside the player, so I prefer to view it in a minimize view only. If you want you can do it full version. 

You have to follow all the steps like we do for Creating a Windows 10 account with user name password etc. You will have to enter your personal details and the process will follow. When you are done with all steps, you will get this. Now here we have our Mac OS X running on our Windows 10 pc.


Now that we are done with the installation of Mac OS X, I would want you to comment and let me know how this post has helped you and what problems are you still getting with installation.
