Upgrading Hardware to run a macOS VM and use it Remote Desktop only?

  • Hi Everyone.
    I found the possibility to install VMs via VirtualBox. This raised a question in my mind:


    Is it possible to run macOS in a VirtualBox machine using it remotely inside the home network?


    If yes: Is there any VM specific Hardware I need (USB Card Special Motherboard)? Or can I just upgrade to 16 or 32 GB of RAM and a i5 or i7 instead of my Current Hardware?


    I Managed, test wise, to install a Windows 10, but it runs very poorly with strange Video output.



    Thanks in advance for your Ideas!

    The answers seem to be:


    1. No, this is not possible without breaking the license agreement with Apple. To do this is a crime. A form of piracy. The only(?) thing that makes this impossible is the license agreement with Apple.


    In other words, if you are willing to commit piracy then, yes it is possible.


    2. You don't need anything special to do this criminal act. Everything is available online, except permission from Apple to do this.


    For details about what you should not do, simply do a Google search for something like "install Mac on VirtualBox".
