How to install Mac OS X 10.9 on Windows 8/7 using Vmware

We used many operating systems in our life. Windows versions , different distributions of Linux , Android etc.. Everyone want to use one operating system in their life, that is Apple mac os x operating system. Apple integrate it with their hardware, so we can’t buy it from other retails stores. Last year, they made Mac OS X free for Apple computer owners,  they can upgrade to latest version of OS X 10.9 from Apple store.  If you want to get   the real power of Apple Mac OS X , you must buy an apple computer.

If you want to install latest Apple Mac OS, Mavericks on Windows machine, this article will help you. Here we installed Apple Mac OS X 10.9 aka Mavericks on Vmware workstation. You can do same on Linux host. Here we use Windows 8 as host machine. We can install Mac OS X 10.9 but it won’t give the real power of Mac OS X. It will be slow, but perfomance depends upon your Processor and RAM.
Requirements : Windows XP, 7, 8 or any Linux distributions ( Windows os will be the best one)
Vmware player or Workstation (player is free, but i prefer Workstation,you can download from torrent)
System with Intel VT or AMD equivalent  technology.
30GB-100GB hard disk space ( 10 GB is required , but if you have more space you can store your documents, you can install applications)
2GB or higher RAM ( More RAM increase performance, i use 8GB RAM i set 3GB for my guest operating system)

Mac OS X 10.9 Mavericks

Steps :

1 : Download Apple Mac OS X 10.9 Mavericks Vmware files

2 : Download VMWare player or workstation ( Download->Desktop & End-User Computing)
