You can actually install and run OS X on any Intel-based and Amd proccesor with a program called VMware Player . VMware Player is a powerful x86 and AMD64/Intel64 virtualization product for home use and free Version. VMware is a useful tool that allows you run different operating systems Windows, Linux, Ubuntu and Mac OS X. You can drag and drop files from windows and put it in Mac OS X.

Niresh’s was the only free distro which was released for Mac OS X, since the iAtkos Team decided to release their Mac OS X distro for specific hardware on donation basis. Mac OS X 10.10 Yosemite AMD Niresh distro is install disks but change bootloader file and add hardware Kext. By replacing the files with Chameleon Boot and FakeSMC, then the VMware will boot the Install DVD (ISO File).

  • Hello, Thanks a lot for the tutorial, it worked great in installing MAC OS. Please advice where i can find the “darwin”

  • Hello, i followed all the steps, and I managed to login as root/niresh, but, as it is recommended in the desktop RTF, I made another admin account so I can work (I require admin permissions). However, when I restarted the virtual machine, it had booted up, I logged into my account, and it was showing only the loading screen for about an hour and a half. Could you please tell me how to make this work (I used the /amd flag, I tried the /amd1 but it was stuck at BIOS)?

  • Hello there, i have followed the steps on this tutorial but when i launch the virtual machine i get an error message saying
    “A fault has occurred causing a virtual CPU to enter the shutdown state. If this fault had occurred outside of a virtual machine, it would have caused the physical machine to restart. The shutdown state can be reached by incorrectly configuring the virtual machine, a bug in the guest operating system, or a problem in VMware Player.

    Click OK to restart the virtual machine or Cancel to power off the virtual machine.”
    I have no idea how to fix this, there should be no issues with my laptop as it is brand new so im really dissapointed i cant get this to work, any help would be greatly appreciated.

  • i have a problem, the software ask me for user and password, and i put root,niresh and it got frozen loading .

  • Installed via VMWARE 12 on Ubuntu 16.04, AMD Phenom II-965, Radeon 4850, 16GB Ram.
    Booting is normal either with /amd or /amd64.

    The problem is why my graphic card only readed as 3MB? How to solve this?
    Please help!
