Steps to install mac os on windows virtual machine

just some quick notes on this

Getting the mac os vm is the tricky part.

This downloads the os and adds to virtual box apparently.

Install virtual box

Run this script to download the os and create a virtual box…

Cygwin install

cygwin will be missing the following packages so run the installer for cygwin and find these packages

Saying its missing the following:

some of them you need to pick the version, just pick the latest and it will install it on next.

Also needed is the xxd package, which it does not check for. 

Keep running the script and it will keep telling you what is missing. 

in cygwin type ./ you might also need to make it +x with

chmod +x

Now its telling me that virtualbox is not accessable

had to go in and change the path to where i had virtual box installed, running now and seems to be working ok.

"Olivia, my eldest daughter, caught measles when she was seven years old. As the illness took its usual course I can remember reading to her often in bed and not feeling particularly alarmed about it. Then one morning, when she was well on the road to recovery, I was sitting on her bed showing her how to fashion little animals out of coloured pipe-cleaners, and when it came to her turn to make one herself, I noticed that her fingers and her mind were not working together and she couldn’t do anything. 'Are you feeling all right?' I asked her. 'I feel all sleepy,' she said. In an hour, she was unconscious. In twelve hours she was dead. The measles had turned into a terrible thing called measles encephalitis and there was nothing the doctors could do to save her. That 1962, but even now, if a child with measles happens to develop the same deadly reaction from measles as Olivia did, there would still be nothing the doctors could do to help her. On the other hand, there is today something that parents can do to make sure that this sort of tragedy does not happen to a child of theirs. They can insist that their child is immunised against measles. ...I dedicated two of my books to Olivia, the first was ‘James and the Giant Peach’. That was when she was still alive. The second was ‘The BFG’, dedicated to her memory after she had died from measles. You will see her name at the beginning of each of these books. And I know how happy she would be if only she could know that her death had helped to save a good deal of illness and death among other children."

I just checked google books for BFG, and the dedication is there.
