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.

    • Hi guys, I installed the Hackintosh Sierra Zone image and most things work except my graphics. It detects as AMD R9 290X when I use FakeID 0x67B01002 on boot, however I only get 7MB of VRAM with no QE. My screen also tears as well. Hope someone can help me - Intel Core i5 2500K - AMD R9 290X 4GB - ASUS P8Z77-V LX
    • Hey guys, I'm looking into dual booting OSX Sierra or High Sierra on my ASUS Zenbook Pro UX501V. I use a lot of mac only software like sketch at uni and it would make my life a lot easier to just be able to boot into it instead of going to campus to use one of their Mac's. I'm currently running windows 10 and would prefer to not have to lose all my files or reinstall windows 10, however if this is unavoidable I would consider it. Specs are Processor    Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-6700HQ CPU @ 2.60GHz, 2592 Mhz, 4 Core(s), 8 Logical Processor(s)
      GPU    NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960m 4gb DDR5
      RAM    12GB DDR4
      BIOS Version/Date    American Megatrends Inc. N501VW.300, 9/05/2016
      BIOS Mode    UEFI Does anyone know of any guides? Or has done this before? Even a link to point me on my way. Looked into the clover bootloader and I'm under the impression that's the route I'll have to take. Thanks for any help you may have      
    • Hi everyone. Here are my specs MOBO :Gigabyte Z68 XP UD3 (1155) GPU : HD 6870 1gb CPU Intel i7 2600k (1155) 60gb SATA SSD   MOBO is using legacy Bios. This machine has served me well for years. I tripped a circuit breaker a few weeks ago and now it's stuck in a boot loop. I have setup a new bootable USB to reinstall but for some reason the boot loop is happening when I startup from this as well. I can manage to get to the desktop using the safe mode boot flag (-x) but after a few moments, the desktop freezes and the computer reboots. I used the 10.10.1 disc image to create the new USB stick I am not sure if this could be causing the boot problem in the USB. Should I have used the 10.10.0? At first I suspected a hardware issue but I left the computer on for two days at in the bios screen and it stayed on just fine. Hoping someone can give me a hand figuring out which boot flags can get me going again or how I can reinstall the OS. I really need to get past the freeze/reboot cycle I am in. I am almost ready to nuke this thing and install windows
    • i also have this problem if you will finde the solution please inform me right away and thank you
    • I built a Hackintosh on a GIGABYTE GA-EP45-UD3P in 2010, and upgraded it to Sierra about 4 months ago. It's been working great until a few days ago.  The clock now is losing time, while the computer is on and running. I've been working on the computer all morning, and have had to bump it forward to the current time it 3-4x. Right now it says 9:40am, but it's really 9:47am.  I have "Set time and date automatically" set in settings and "Apple Americas/U.S. (time.apple.com.)" selected on the drop down. Deselecting it, and selecting it again, brings the clock back to the current time.  Is this a hardware issue or a software issue? Do I have to replace the CR2032 on the motherboard? If so - why? The computer is on, and running, why would it need that battery to maintain the time?
