    I have tried several times to load so called mac os (made for the pc) on a pc and got as far as it booted and then fails.
    Does anyone know a mac os not too far back that would work on a dell notebook.
    Looking for this type of software to run under VM ware on at the pc

    I've not ever heard of a "mac os (made for the pc)"
    There is no version from Apple that was offered that way, and will always have OS X in the name.
    Unless you have a really old version - pre - OS X which would be called MacOS 8, or 9, or even (if from early 90s) System 7 or older.
    If you have a DVD or CD, can you describe what's on the label?
    If you downloaded this from somewhere, the name of the file might tell something, too.
    What else can you tell us about the "mac os" that you have?
    You may even discover what you want to find out about loading OS X in VMWare on a Windows PC laptop (and lots of other choices) here:

    The only way you can get a "made for PC" version is to pirate the OS, so I don't think you should try helping this guy.

    such a stir

    Sorry to cause such a stir, the disk i had which almost worked was in 2009 called IATKOS ver 7.0 but it did not work properly.
    There must be something new out there that does work by now

    iatkos is a near-pirated version of osx, ceated by the osx86 people.

    you won't get help with that on this forum. the iatkos people have their own semi-legal forum.
