Note: This process is taken from various sources from the google search. I don?t reserve the right of procedure nor I guarantee that it will work in your system. Also, Mac should only be installed in Apple computer as pointed by Apple Inc and this is not the legal way to use MacOS. I only recommend this to people who want to have taste and feel of Mac before actually purchasing one.

- Virtualbox image file .vmdk

Step 2: Download MacOS
There are several websites providing virtual disk image of MacOS but for our purpose, we will download .vmdk of MacOS High Sierra from techsviewer.com
