Installing Macintosh OS X on a PC

Yes, it is possible.

A wonderful experience I’m living since 3 years with full Mac OS X features on my Dell Inspiron laptop (and thanks to my cousin). I’m not talking about a virtual system in a virtual machine software, I’m talking about a fully bootable OS as a separated installation.

In this blog, I’m not going to explain the installation steps, I will just share the idea, and lead you to the shortest setup instructions.

The most important problem users face when trying to install “Hackintosh” is the hardware compatibility, so if you are planning to buy a custom PC to install OS X, you better get the compatible hardware for that, read through the latest CustoMac Buyer’s Guide for compatibility advice. But if you want to install it on a PC you already have, give it a shot, you might be lucky to get all your hardware to work!

What do you need to start?

1- A computer already running OS X, you can get help from a friend. This is needed only at the beginning of the process to get the latest OS version from the App Store.

2- A 16GB or larger USB flash drive.

3- An SSD drive, and it is optional, but you won’t believe how much the performance enhances when using SSD instead of HDD.

When you are ready, all installation instructions to install latest MacOS on a PC are detailed in the link below:
