    I attempted this about a year ago on my windows system but got nowhere. Can someone point me in the right direction? I have a mac with el capitan on.. is there away of getting the iso?

    What do you want to do, put a windows OS on it?

    Just use vmware fusion, not sure if you can get a free version?

    @Jaron78 yeah I use VB to run Windows the big issue is compatibilty and Apple make it ridiculously hard to get hold of the OS file. I am currently upgrading my mac os to sierra and managed to copy the installer.. Im wondering if I can use the installer to install mac os on vmware fusion.. not even sure if possible or how to do it.. guess I will google but fedup of hitting dead ends and bad information.
