Windows 8 Hypervisor and OS X? Possible?

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I've been googling all over the place and searching around in here, but it seems like no one has tried playing around with the new Hyper-V features that are built into Windows 8 Pro. I'm curious if that is a bridge to nowhere, or if it would ever be possible to get Mac OS X running under Windows 8 this way? Normally, I'd just crack on and try it out, but it seems that most (or all) of the hackintosh Mac OS X images out there are built to run under Vmware.

Has anyone of you just tried to convert any of the available VMDKs for VMware to VHD and boot from them in Hyper-V? I've tried that but all to no avail. All I see is a blinking cursor like the boot code wasn't able to start the boot loader.

 

The primary partition on that Hyper-V machine is EFI-enabled. Isn't it enough, I wonder? Any clue on how I could trace what's going on? It's 10.5.7 on Hyper-V 3.x.

 

Cheers.

In a word no, Hyper-V has no support for OS X.

 

Thanks, MSoK.

 

Bad news. Could you elaborate further, what's the culprit? Is it because Darwin has no native Hyper-V support?

What you do not understand?

 

 

Hyper-V does NOT support Mac OS X, same as it does not support most of Linux distros, or NetWare or few others that work perfectly fine on Vmware

 

 

Lets try again - Hyper-V does NOT support Mac OS X, imagine like you could not run Windows on Amiga (Amiga does not support Windows)
