    With software like BootCamp or Parallels it's possible to run Windows on a Mac. But how does one run macOS on a PC? What software is available to achieve that aim? (If the answer is quite nerdy, excellent, let's go there! :D)

    You can do it using VirtualBox. I looked into it a few years back when I had a PC but quickly abandoned the idea because it looked like too much trouble. There's probably a better solution nowadays, but yes, it can be done.

    I done it a few times, only big problem for me was it would not go widescreen.

    It's possible, but it's also only licensed for use on hardware purchased from Apple.
