Most known OSX 10 virtualization solution is VirualBox, for example  http://www.macbreaker.com/2014/05/os-x-mavericks-in-virtualbox-with-niresh.html

Here is VirtualBox requirement:

  1. Oracle VM VirtualBox is an free and open-source tool that you can use to run virtual servers on any computer using an x86-type processor, such as the common Intel and AMD chips. It lets you run other operating systems or another instance of the same operating system on your computer. For example, if your creative department uses Macs, they could use VirtualBox to open up a Windows virtual computer to access a program that the rest of your company uses. It's frequently used for testing since you can use one computer to test a program or Web page in multiple operating systems.
  1. CPU and RAM

  2. VirtualBox runs on Intel and AMD processors even if they don't support their manufacturers' VT-x or AMD-V virtualization technologies. Oracle also recommends that you have at least 1GB of RAM to run the software in addition to what is needed to support your computer's processes. When running VirtualBox, remember that your CPU's power will be divided between the virtual computers that it runs, so the faster it is, the faster each virtual computer will be.
  1. Storage

  2. Oracle doesn't specify a storage requirement for VirtualBox because the program itself is relatively small. For example, the VirtualBox installer for Windows is less than 100MB. However, you do need space for the virtual computers that will run under VirtualBox. If you want to run a virtual Windows 8 computer on your Linux box, you need enough space to install the second operating system and Windows 8 programs and for storage inside your Windows 8 virtual partition. If you heavily use VirtualBox, you could end up needing hundreds of gigabytes of extra storage.

  1. Windows Requirements

  2. VirtualBox can run on many flavors of Windows. It supports 32- and 64-bit versions of Vista, Windows 7 and Windows 8, as well as 32-bit versions of Windows XP. It also works on Windows server platforms, including the 32-bit edition of Windows Server 2003, both 32- and 64-bit Windows Server 2008 and Windows Server 2012.
  1. Other OS Requirements

  2. VirtualBox not only enables you to run multiple operating systems, but it can also run on multiple operating systems. Oracle offers an OS X version of VirtualBox that runs on versions 10.6, 10.7 and 10.8. You can use VirtualBox with four flavors of Linux -- Oracle Enterprise Linux, SUSE Linux, Ubuntu and Redhat Enterprise Linux. VirtualBox also supports Solaris 10 and Solaris 11.
