Probably the majority of Windows users have never tested MacOS X, even now that there is a version for Intel processors in the system. However without altering in any way, our current system is very simple to install and run Mac OS X on VMWare Workstation, Windows XP, and more over, running on an AMD64
Preparation step by step
In my case, I will use my desktop pc to test this OS. Of course, it is expected a considerable decline of performance of the operating system to fully emulated.
2.1) First prepare the team for Mac OS. The main thing is to allocate sufficient memory for the operating system, I configured 384 MB of ram available to the virtual machine and a total of 6 or 7 GB drive (assigning fixed space to gain a bit of performance):
2.2) Then, insert the Mac OS X DVD and start our virtual machine, from the DVD reader clearly. With a little patience the Installer starts in a few minutes:
2.3) To install the operating system the first thing is to format the disk with the utility called "Disk Utility" which we invoke the Installer tools from the menu. In this tool, we select the corresponding hard disk and create a diagram of a partition format "Mac OS Extended (Journaled)" using all available capacity:
2.4) Then we accept and select the disk partitioning as a destination for the installation. Before you start copying files we can customize files and plug-ins system, to obtain a higher yield I eliminated many applications which can be installed later by inserting the installation disk again and selecting "update" as a mode of installation, similarly as the ".msi" in Windows installers:
2.5) We begin copying files. At the end of the process will restart automatically:
2.6) We're almost inside our Macyou only need to fill in some data:
2.7) Welcome to Mac OS X:
2.8) Do screen saver?:
Mac OS X performance is surprisingly higher than the imagined, I would say that on occasions to place the virtual machine to full screen one can forget that it is actually an emulation. Concerning Mac OS X bit is for the few hours that I've been playing in the system. Aesthetically, it is nearly perfect, very intuitive (except for certain key combinations) and very stable.
