How to Install Mac OS X Snow Leopard on a Windows PC

Most of us like Mac and this is not just for the beautiful looks or the powerful hardware but for the Operating System OS X. Now it’s quite possible for anyone to install a Mac OS X Snow Leopard the latest OS from Apple on their normal computers powered with Windows or Linux. Here are few of the reasons why you would be looking to perform this job.

*Running file with DMG format which don’t run in the Windows based computers.

*For demonstrating the Mac applications to your students at school, college or office.

Apple does not allow you to run a Windows based application on their Operating System and this is against their License Agreement. So if you like the Operating System or the Applications then it is recommended that you go and buy a Mac instead of continuing running using this method.

Step 1:

In order to get started with this you need to first install software that will create a virtual environment on your computer. There are many different options available here but we are going to install ‘VMware Workstation’ which allows you to install multiple operating systems on a single computer. If you are just testing out this process it’s recommended to download a trial version of this software and get started.

Step 2:

Once you install the VMware Workstation on your computer, you will find a new Tray Icon in your Taskbar which displays all the Virtual OS running on your computer.

Step 3:

Next you need to import a pre-configured VMware file which would install Snow Leopard on the computer. Simply go to ‘www.mediafire.com/? dhbxnndmznw’ and download a copy of this file.

Step 4:

Extract all the files using a File Extraction Software like WinZip or Winrar and open the same using the VMware Workstation software. An ISO file is extracted along with a lot of virtual disk files which can be installed on Intel Based Processors.

Step 6:

Next you can configure the Devices option using the ‘Edit Virtual Machine Settings’ which will allow you to Increase or Decrease the Memory Size, Hard Disk Space, Processors, CD/DVD Drive, Display etc. Generally it’s recommended to increase the RAM size if it’s possible because that way you can run both the Operating Systems with better performance.

Step 7:

Next under the CD/DVD Edit option you need to select the downloaded ISO file [Darwin_Snow.iso] instead of the ‘Auto detect’ option.

Step 8:

Next you need to ‘Power ON’ your Virtual Machine which will run the Snow Leopard OS on the Virtual Machine, but while this process starts you need to press the F8 button so that the Booting Options would be displayed on the screen.

The Snow Leopard Installation file would be downloaded in the form of a .DMG file which has to be converted into ISO File first.

Step 9:

Next while the Mac is booting up you need to click on the CD Settings and select the CD/DVD Disk Drive or Auto Select option as shown below to make the software to find the Snow Leopard Installation files from your computer.

Step 10:

Next you will be shown an option to select to Boot from DVD or else from HDD or Eject DVD, select the Boot from DVD option. You will get the Leopard Installation Screen before you which you need to proceed and completed. Make sure that you restart your computer a few times and also adjust the screen resolution for better quality display.
