Hi hackers,

I’ve done a fair share of googling, but the answer apparently still eludes me. A few ppl mentioned that it might be illegal, but I’m not quite sure whether or not it is legal.

To keep it short:

Can you run OS X on your VMware? And is it legal?

Will all the hardware work? (I still haven’t found out to enable/share the wireless card yet in my virtual XP).

I’m currently using Vista 64 bit with VMware Workstation 6.5

It's against the user agreement to run OS 10 on non-Apple hardware, which does make it illegal.

OS 10 won't know you have a wireless adapter, same as any OS in a VM.

If i remember it right you can install MacOS on a non-Apple hardware only if you are a Apple Certified User. And if my memory serve me right it costs only couple of hundred bucks to become one... Although there is a free developer membership, but i don't remember if it allowed one to install on a non-Apple hardware...

And it is possible to install MacOS X in VMware Workstation 6 (haven't tried in 6.5, should go although).

*cough*There is a MacOS VM floating around*cough*
