Why can’t a macOS be installed in a Windows computer?

macOS, also known as Mac OS X, is a proprietary operating system developed and maintained by Apple Inc. for use on Apple’s Macintosh computers. This operating system is not designed to be installed on non-Apple hardware, such as a Windows computer. This is because macOS is specifically built to work with Apple’s hardware and software ecosystem, and is therefore not compatible with the hardware and software of a Windows computer. Additionally, Apple has put in place technical and legal restrictions to prevent macOS from being installed on non-Apple hardware.

Why can’t a macOS be installed in a Windows computer?

Apple don’t want that to happen.

Not because they want to extract more money from hardware sales (Apple hardware is actually cheap for the quality you get anyway), not because they wouldn’t sell OS X as a product if they could.

It’s really simple: they did the math on the support costs of random third party hardware, and the numbers came up “nope”.

Get 20% off Google Workspace (Google Meet)  Business Plan (AMERICAS) with  the following codes:  C37HCAQRVR7JTFK Get 20% off Google Workspace (Google Meet) Business Plan (AMERICAS): M9HNXHX3WC9H7YE (Email us for more codes)

Apple actually did this long before OS X was a thing; for a short while you could actually get a licensed non-Apple MacOS computer.

But the support costs killed it.

To actually do this and make money, they’d have to sell OS X for a couple of thousand dollars, or maybe a subscription at about $50/month. That’s to pay for the three or four thousand developers and ten or so thousand support people they’d have to hire to deal with all the random crap hardware out there.

And it still wouldn’t meet their quality targets anyway.

So how can Microsoft do it?

They get the OEMs and hardware manufacturers to deal with most of it. Which they mostly do badly, but people have somehow become used to the resulting mess.

Making the OS itself free does mean that they don’t want people to install it on third party hardware because that would mean zero profits from the extra user (unless they use services such as iCloud in a premium fashion — more than just what’s given free).

I guess that makes the hackintoshing phenomenon an issue. Now, when the support for the last Intel based Mac ends hackintoshing will be a real issue (I mean, some explicitly limit themselves to High Sierra because of some NVidia GPUs that aren’t supported on newer versions at all…). But for now, if you have good, compatible hardware, you can reap the benefits just fine.

I am currently a hackintosher but intend to get an actual MacBook Pro (Intel based) soon. Wouldn’t have happened if I didn’t get a good hackintosh. So I’d say, don’t fight those who try it out like this and then migrate to actual Apple products, since that’s actually a profit vector. Only fight those that do it despite that.

The better question to ask is “How does Linux do it?”. You can find drivers for most of “the random crap hardware out there”… You can “google yourself” the support for most of the issues you’d run into, unlike Windows, etc. Support is a “thing” mostly for corporate users. Companies need someone to sue in case they’d somehow lose a penny because of hw/sw issues.

Using Windows would be much better than hackintoshing. Windows has its issues, it is not as reliable as macOS. However, Windows is much more flexible than macOS. It is much more programmer friendly than macOS. Most of the advantages of macOS will cease to exist once you take it out of the integration with Apple hardware.

You can, not so easily, run the OSX on a windows machine as you would run a second version of windows or Linux or any other OS. My current machine has around 4 different OS in 2 drives. The machine was originally assembled keeping in mind running it on OSX, endearingly known by the community as Hackintoshs. I did run an OSX version of Snow Leopard for a few months but didn’t have much use of it as I already own a MacBook Pro. A fun project but not without hastles.

Also, I did shift my 10+ year old MacBooks drive into the machine, before writing this reply, just for fun. Given the changes over time, the OSX failed to recognise half the peripherals which is solvable, but would need a lot of work.

You can. Such computers are called a “Hackintosh.” The procedure is totally unsupported, but I suppose it can save the user some money, when it works.

It’s not that it can’t. It’s a violation of the end-user license. If you’d like to give a try, just google out Hackintosh. I am not aware of any prosecution if you do. Definitely nothing like the infamous Microsoft initiated BSA raids on companies and individual users.

  • MacBook Pro is randomly slow and unresponsive
    by /u/Sea_Talk2935 (Mac) on June 12, 2024 at 1:42 pm

    I have a 13inch MacBook Pro 2017. It was working fine until it randomly stopped. Cursor moves but performing any function takes forever if at all it happens. Can’t open any app and it’s slow to the point of being unusable. Storage is not a problem. I’ve tried all troubleshooting methods. 1. Reinstall MacOS 2. Repair disk with disk utility 3. Reset NVRAM 4. Shut it down for over 12 hours and rebooted. Read somewhere to let the battery run completely out of charge and recharge/reboot again so trying that now. Apple support is no help and Genius Bar says I should just upgrade the laptop. Any help would be appreciated! submitted by /u/Sea_Talk2935 [link] [comments]

  • Need to move photos from extremely slow iMac for nana’s funeral
    by /u/No-Jeweler-3295 (Mac) on June 12, 2024 at 1:23 pm

    So, a while back I managed to destroy my iMac (2019) by playing Tekkit with an unnecessary large render distance and 200+ mods, it’s become extremely slow to the point it’s practically worthless. Now my nana’s on her sickbed, and pops and I are arranging the funeral. I always had the honor of safekeeping the digital family photo’s, but as they are on my iMac (and for some reason the external harddrive my backup photo’s are on isn’t working on my MacBook), I’m stuck! I can still access, move and delete my files, even open the photo’s, but all in Safe Boot and at a slow pace. I had to turn off the Wifi because that makes the machine act even slower. Trying to move photo’s onto my working external harddrive makes it crash. I feel so bad, my head’s about to explode trying to find a solution, so I truly hope a genius amongst you has an answer for this, I’d be eternally grateful. I realize all this is my own fault but don’t know what to do now... submitted by /u/No-Jeweler-3295 [link] [comments]

  • Prevent MacBook Pro M1 CPU from slowing down when screen is off?
    by /u/tay95 (Mac) on June 12, 2024 at 1:22 pm

    I've got a 2021 M1 Max MBP. Yesterday, I started up some processes in Jupyter Lab that were running at ~15s per loop and timed it to be done when I got in this morning. Looking at the logs though, as soon as my Mac screen shut off, the time per loop jumped to nearly 45 seconds! As soon as it woke up this morning, back to 15s. I want my screen to shut off, but for the CPU processing to not throttle. I can't sort out what combination of settings to use for that, though. Anyone got any ideas?? submitted by /u/tay95 [link] [comments]

  • $2300 PC + $1500 MBA v/s $1500 PC + $2200 MBP
    by /u/CouldNotThinkName (Mac) on June 12, 2024 at 12:41 pm

    As the title says which would be better, my budget is around $3800, I'll mostly be using them for programming, gaming, daily tasks, might get into some game dev and machine learning down the track, I'm a studying CS in college rn so lots of things to explore, and I want this setup to last me a longgggg time. I'll also need mobility as I'm in college. Not really into video editing. If I go for the second config (which I'm leaning towards), I'll be using mbp for pretty much everything and pc for pretty much only gaming (1080p-1440p). If I go for the first build I'll be using MBA for mobility and light tasks and maybe programming(I've heard Mac OS is better for that), and PC for heavy tasks and 1440p-4k gaming. I've used windows laptops my entire life and this would be my first experience with pc building as well as with Mac OS. I'm quite skeptical about MBA as its fanless i think it might struggle with tasks I'll have to do on the go. Also ik some of you might say I'm spending too much, but don't worry budget isn't that big of a problem, I've got a budget decided and now I need to utilize it in the best way possible, ensuring as much longevity as possible. 1st pc would be a 7800x3d 4070 super 32gbx1 ram, 2tb dan A4 h20 (parts are quite expensive in my country, haha) MBA 13 m3 16gb ram with 256gb, might use external SSD. 2nd pc would be 7600x 16gb ram, 2tb dan A4 h20, haven't decided gpu but something under $500 Mbp 14 m3 pro 18gb ram with 512gb(That display looks so much better than MBA) PC cost also includes monitor, accessories cost btw. submitted by /u/CouldNotThinkName [link] [comments]

What is involved in Windows Boot Process:

The Windows boot process involves several stages, in which the operating system performs various tasks to prepare the system for use.

  1. The BIOS (Basic Input/Output System) runs a power-on self-test (POST) to check the system’s hardware components and to load the bootstrap program.
  2. The bootstrap program, also known as the boot loader, is responsible for loading the operating system kernel and transferring control to it. In Windows, the boot loader is called the bootmgr.
  3. The operating system kernel, which is the core of the operating system, initializes the system and starts the system services.
  4. The system services, such as the device drivers, are loaded and initialized.
  5. The operating system loads the user profile and starts the user interface, such as the desktop or the login screen.
  6. The user can log in and start using the system.

This is a general overview of the Windows boot process. The exact sequence of events may vary depending on the specific version of Windows and the hardware configuration of the system.


    • Power is turned on.
    • The first process starting when you turn on your computer is BIOS i.e, Basic Input Output System. BIOS has two functions, to conduct POST and read MBR.
      1. POST – POST stands for Power On Self Test. POST checks all the hardware devices connected to a computer like RAM, hard disk etc and make sure that the system can run smoothly with those hardware devices. If the POST is a failure the system halts with a beep sound.
      2. Now BIOS checks the boot priority. We can set the boot priority as CD drive, hard disk or floppy drive
      3. MBR – The next duty of BIOS is to read the MBR. MBR stands for Master Boot Record and its the first sector on a hard disk. MBR
        contains the partition table and boot loader.
    • Functions of Boot loader
      Now BIOS has passed the control to boot loader and boot loader is a small program which loads kernel to computers memory. Actually there are two stages of boot loaders, stage 1 boot loader and stage 2 boot loader. MBR contains the stage 1 boot loader and stage 1 boot loader is a link to the stage 2 boot loader. The stage 2 boot loader resides in the boot partition and it loads the kernel to memory.
    • Boot files and functions
      There are three boot files in a Windows operating system and they are NTLDR, NTDETECT.COM and Boot.ini. The boot files are found in the active partition of hard disk and its normally C drive in a Windows machine.

      1. NTLDR – NTLDR stands for NT Loader and its the second stage bootloader. The path of NTLDR is C:\Windows\i386\NTLDR.
      2. Boot.ini – Boot.ini contains the configuration files of NTLDR. When the operating system is loaded we cannot pass any arguments to kernel, so those arguments are passed through boot.ini. You can edit boot.ini by opening through notepad. The path of Boot.ini is C:\boot.ini.
      3. NTDETECT.COM – This file detect hardware’s and passes information to NTLDR. Using the collected information the NTLDR creates a hardware key and this key is used to detect hardware’s. A new hardware key is generated after each reboot of the operating system and that’s why system asks to reboot after installation of a new hardware. The hardware keys created by NTLDR can be found in Windows registry at
    • Kernel and its functions
      After executing the functions of boot files the control is passed to Kernel. ntoskrnal.exe is the kernel file in a Windows machine and its path is C:\Windows\system 32\ntoskrnal.exe. Kernel acts as a layer between software and hardware. The library file hal.dll (C;\Windows\system32\hal.dll) helps Kernel to interact with hardware’s. HAL stands for Hardware Abstraction Layer and this hal.dll file is
      machine specific. Now the drivers for hardware’s are loaded from the file C:\Windows\system32\config\system and the Kernel is loaded to primary memory.
  • Services and log in procedure
    When kernel is loaded in the primary memory services for each process is started and the registry entry for those services can be found at HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE – System – Current control set – Services.
    Winlogon.exe (C:\Windows\system32\winlogon.exe) is the last service started during this process.
    Winlogon.exe starts the log in procedures of windows machine. It first calls the library file msgina.dll (C:\Windows\system32\msgina.dll). MSGINA stands for Microsoft Graphics Identification and Authentication and it provides the log in window. Now msginal.dll passes the control to LSA (Local Security Authority), it verifies the username and password from the SAM file. SAM (Security Accounts Manager) contains the information about all users created in a Windows operating system.
    Now the booting procedure is over and we have reached the desktop of Windows operating system.

How to check how many CPU cores I have on Windows & Linux?

What is a core in a CPU?
In summary, a core is a small CPU or processor built into a big CPU or CPU socket. It can independently perform or process all computational tasks. From this perspective, we can consider a core to be a smaller CPU or a smaller processor within a big processor.
Today, CPUs have been two and 18 cores, each of which can work on a different task. A core can work on one task, while another core works a different task, so the more cores a CPU has, the more efficient it is.

Open a command prompt (Windows) or Terminal (Linux) and type:

  • Windows: WMIC CPU Get /Format:List
  • Linux: cat /proc/cpuinfo | grep processor | wc -l
