I was pretty unsure myself whether I would want to jump onto a Mac ever since I first googled Sesame Street when I was like 6 years old (don’t ask me why) on my computer which ran on Microsoft’s Windows.

 

Since then, it took me awhile to get used to Apple’s macOS and the way I did it was rather than buying the Mac itself I tried it out on my Windows PC.

 

So, if you want to try Apple’s macOS on your Windows 10 too, (which I’m assuming you have already upgraded, if not you can follow this shit-easy guide on 9 Ways to Get Windows 10 for Free) here’s how you can install macOS Sierra Final in VirtualBox on Windows 10. 🙂

 

 

 

So what’s new on macOS Sierra 10.12 Final?

 

The all-new macOS Sierra 10.12 Final by Apple is the latest version of Mac system software right now (updated March 2017) and it brings with it a whole lot of new tweaks and changes that you might like.

 

Here’s a video on the new macOS Sierra 10.12 Final. 🙂

 

 

Siri just doesn’t get enough of you does she? 😉

 

Well, literally every geek in the Apple-cult has been dying to have Siri on their Macs (it’s the only substitute for their single lives) and it has been one of the main talking points of the new macOS Sierra 10.12 alongside all the other new additions.

 

Apple has made it free for both you and me to download the latest macOS Sierra 10.12 for free but yet again it takes a few simple steps if you want to get this if you’re not a Mac user and instead are on a Windows 10 PC.

 

I’ll show you exactly how.

 

If you instead don’t want to just get Sierra and you want to get High then you can always follow this guide below.

 

 

 meet VirtualBox

VirtualBox is one tiny, powerful dude, and it is capable of installing macOS onto your Windows 10 computer as an app.

 

It works like a charm with Sierra, but before you get onto the guide, there are three little requirements that your Windows 10 computer is going to need in order for you to install the macOS onto your computer. 🙂

 

The minimum requirements that you are going to need are:

•  a 64-Bit Computer

•  at least 4GB RAM

•  a Dual-Core processor

 

Got all of that? Splendid! Once your have got that out of the way, you can now proceed to install macOS Sierra in VirtualBox on Windows 10.

 

 

Here are the links to the downloads that you’ll be needing to install macOS Sierra onto your VirtualBox successfully. 🙂

 

Download (Updated June 2018)

 

Now I know what you’re thinking, “Which one of the two macOS Sierra 10.12 Final download links should I download from?”

The reason why I have included two Google Drive download links for you is that, the (One Full) download link has the entire macOS Sierra 10.12 Final file from Apple as one 5.3GB file. So if you are alright with letting your computer run all night to download the 5GB file then you can go for this

The (5 of 5) download link has the entire macOS Sierra 10.12 Final file as 5 separate 1GB files, so if your internet connection is pretty weak or if you just simply want to take your time and download one by one then you can go for this. 🙂

 

Once, you are done with the download ‘stuff’,  you can now go on with the 5 quick and simple steps below.

Note

Now close your VirtualBox. Then should you proceed with the next step.

 

 

 

5.  Add Code to VirtualBox with Command Prompt (cmd)

 

Before you add the code onto VirtualBox with your Command Prompt, you have a few little changes that you have to make to make things easier for you.

 

Step 1:  Replace the phrase “Your VM Name” in the code (below) with your own virtual machine name which you can find in General, then under Basic. It’s best if you copy the code below into your Notepad and then replace the areas where it says “Your VM Name” with your own virtual machine name before moving on the next step.

 

 

Code for Virtualbox 5.x.x
cd "C:\Program Files\Oracle\VirtualBox\"
VBoxManage.exe modifyvm "Your VM Name" --cpuidset 00000001 000106e5 00100800 0098e3fd bfebfbff
VBoxManage setextradata "Your VM Name" "VBoxInternal/Devices/efi/0/Config/DmiSystemProduct" "iMac11,3"
VBoxManage setextradata "Your VM Name" "VBoxInternal/Devices/efi/0/Config/DmiSystemVersion" "1.0"
VBoxManage setextradata "Your VM Name" "VBoxInternal/Devices/efi/0/Config/DmiBoardProduct" "Iloveapple"
VBoxManage setextradata "Your VM Name" "VBoxInternal/Devices/smc/0/Config/DeviceKey" "ourhardworkbythesewordsguardedpleasedontsteal(c)AppleComputerInc"
VBoxManage setextradata "Your VM Name" "VBoxInternal/Devices/smc/0/Config/GetKeyFromRealSMC" 1

 

 

 

Step 2:  You’re almost done! Now all that you have to do is find your Command Prompt (cmd) and Run as an administrator.
