    pc running mac
    Hi guys,
    I was wondering i have a pc and i really need to run mac on it. i know there are alot of youtube videos that show how to do it though it always does not end up the way i want it. the thing i want is so that i can always update the software and keep track with apples versions. please if anyone can get back to me it would be great.
    Thanks

    Not only is it against the EULa to install OS X on non-Apple hardware, it is also against the law here in the U.S. thanks to the DMCA and it's discussion is thus not allowed.
    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
    In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.

    buy a Mac, then put it on top of your PC. Then you are running a Mac on it.

    Short answer is you can't, not legally. But you can buy a used Intel-based Mac very inexpensively; that would be your best bet if you want to run OSX for some limited purposes.
