For the second time in this year I had to live without my mbp, because of a failure that forced me to send it to service. I had this idea, but I am not sure if it can be done. I am taking backup everyday, of my whole system, osx, application, everything. I use super duper to create an identical bootable backup, in an external hard disk. Is there any way to load this osx environment in a virtualization platform in a windows based pc? Living without my mac for many days is always a problem. Of course, I have my files in usb sticks etc. I can do many tasks using windows systems. But it would be convenient if I could just run a virtualization program in pc, load my osx environment from external hard disk, and be able to work in a pc using my virtual mac, until I get back my mbp machine. Please pay attention that I am not talking about a discrete/new setup of osx in a virtual machine in windows. This can be done, I know it. I want my existing system to be loaded and run, which is also the most synchronized to the real one inside my mac. So, is this possible? How it can be done?
