could you run mac os x on virtual pc?

I know if you have os x you can download vmware fusion to emulate windows, but can it be done the other way around?

Technologically? Yes

Legally/Easily? No

Apple forbids their OS from running on anything but their own hardware. You agree to this when you accept the EULA upon installation of OS X.

It is technically possible to run OS X on x86 "PC" platforms (see "Hackintosh" on google)

I'm sure it could be made to put in a Virtual Machine, but doing so is illegal and therefore a bad idea. It likely would be terribly unstable anyway.

if you have VMware Workstation or VM Server there is a pre configured VM floating around on the internet you can download. It works fine on my PC

It's possible. But not legal!

You can run OSX server virtually but not the desktop version.

Its possible but what r u going to do this for its just a pain in the ***
IF u really want this u should have a nice proccessor with some features supported and alot of RAM allocated to the VM
as jordus said search on google Hackintosh there r many versions try (IPCx86)
good luck

Please someone help me with this I'll legally buy the OS its just to become an iPhone / iTouch developer you need the iPhone SDK which is mac specific and not cross platform which is a major bummer and I don't really feel like spending close to $1000 on a macbook. So please someone help me out!

Thanks,

Kukag, even if you buy OS X legally you still violate the EULA by installing it on any hardware that isnt Apples.

Sorry man, I wouldnt waste my time becoming a developer for a Gestapo company like Apple because of the arbitrary limitations they put on everything. Just my opinion.
