    Accepted Solution

    You are only allowed to run a MAC OS on MAC hardware, so if the Hyper-V Server is running on an Apple PC, it might work. If you are trying to install it on a standard, non-apple PC/Server, it isn't allowed by the Apple Terms of Use.

    I agree "You are only allowed to run a MAC OS on MAC hardware"

    On OSx 10.9.x as host, we are using vmWare Fusion - it works fine
