    Hello guys...

    Is there a possibility to run Mac OS X Leopard on Windows through VMware Workstation? I've searched the whole internet... Can someone answer my question?

    Thanks..!

    Interesting coincidence, I just tried to install Leopard (osx86 version, yes) on VMware Server about 10 minutes ago.

    Unfortunately, it failed, as I thought it would.

    This is my second try. A few weeks ago I tried it with the JaS Tiger version, failed also.

    This time I am using the kalyway leopard version.

    I don't think it's possible. You gotta install it on physical hardware rather than a VM.

    I don't know what all this stuff is, but I think it's hilarious how Windows allow you to run It's software on a Mac, but apple won't let you run Leopard on a PC.

    ^^ It's against their liscense.
    The only way that apple makes money from the macs is because their software can only run on macs without hacking your pc.

    Nice, is that a osx86 version or the normal version installed?

    I only ask because I am unfamiliar with PearPC.

    I believe it emulates a powerPC arcitecture?
