1- Download Mac OS

Mac OS is a computer operating system developed by Apple. This is a operating system with beautiful interface, however, to own a the computer of Apple with this operating system, you need to use a lot of money, normally with the double price than that of common computers using Windows operating system. Fortunately, you can experience the Mac OS right on your computer by installing a Mac OS virtual machine on VirtualBox.
Below is the list of Mac OS versions released in recent years:

In this post, I will show you how to install the Mac OS on VirtualBox. First of all, please download an installer.

The VirtualBox Extension Pack includes support for USB 3.0 and USB 2.0 devices, webcam passthrough, disk image encryption, VirtualBox Remote Desktop Protocol (VRDP), and network booting with Intel PXE Boot ROM, and along with some other capabilities as well. Before we install OS X, we’ll need to set up VirtualBox so the OS X install disc can boot correctly. Here’s what you need to do: Step 1: Launch VirtualBox and click the New button. Give your new virtual machine a name (I just called it “Mac OS X”) and set the operating system to “Mac OS X Server (64-bit)”. VirtualBox is being actively developed with frequent releases and has an ever growing list of features, supported guest operating systems and platforms it runs on. VirtualBox is a community effort backed by a dedicated company: everyone is encouraged to contribute while Oracle ensures the product always meets professional quality criteria. Thus, Oracle VM VirtualBox comes with extensive support for a substantial number of guest operating systems including, but absolutely not limited to, Mac OS X (10.5 or later), DOS/Windows 3.x, Linux (2.4 and 2.6), Windows (NT 4.0, 2000, XP, Server 2003, Vista, Windows 7), Solaris and OpenSolaris, OpenBSD, and OS/2. VirtualBox is free, open-source, and works well for developers and hobbyists, but it's less ideal for anyone who wants to seamlessly run Windows and Linux apps on a Mac.
