    Ok, don't laugh!

    I am developing my first iPhone game, but apparently in order to upload it to app store you actually need a Mac, which I don't have funds (or room) to buy right now.

    Is there an emulator that would allow me to run a Mac OS on my PC?

    Thanks

    See if this helps you!

    VMWare for windows looks like it may help. Would post link but not allowed.

    I think VMware is to run Windows on a Mac, but I sent them an email to see if they have Mac on a PC emulation.

    Thanks

    It's against copyright and the EULA to run OSX on anything other than Apple hardware. That said, it is possible to run OSX inside a virtual machine.

    I don't mean a pirated copy of OS X, I mean a real purchased valid version!

    It's still against the EULA even if you do buy it......but as stated above, it can be done.

    I tried to install OSX Leopard last night on my MacBook Pro Parallels Desktop 7 and the system told me that it can not be installed. It did tell me the Leopard Server and Snow Leopard Server could be installed. Don't know if this helps you or not!

    Correct.

    IIRC, you can install SL first then upgrade to Lion. Google for the SL procedure as I seem to recall there were one or two special things that had to be done.
