    Very simple answer: NO

    Mac OS is simply IMPOSSIBLE on Hyper-V

    Everything is possible, but this one's so hard it's not even worth trying.
    I'm not a hackintosh expert, but if I'm not mistaken you need KEXTs for you hardware. For Hyper-V they don't exist yet so you'd have to write them yourself. That's about the same as "I don't like any car on the market, so I'm building my own".

    Macos or not, using HV on a client machine, for anything else than self educational scopes, is just stupid.

    Vmware or virtualbox are way better solutions for any OS. In MacOS case VMware is just perfect, it works flawlessly with it since the stone age... (you have to unlock it before installing Macos or before starting a premade virtual disk)

    Looking for VMX file for El Capitant so that, I can test the OS for learning purpose only. I would like to run the new OS on vmware workstation. Any help would be appreciated.

    I know the files I am asking are going to be very big. Any torrent site where, I can download would be appreciated.

    With Windows Server 2016 it starts to seem possible.
    You need to make a Generation 1 VM (to get IDE and LAN), have NVidia Grid GPU as Discreet Device Assignment.
    You must use boot loader (Clover is best for non-EFI systems, and Gen1 is non-EFI)
    Your server BIOS and GPU must support DDA (my ProLiant WS460c Gen9 does support both)

    I am going to build configuration in September (need to get my xHCI 1.1 controller first), where I would be able to pass GPU and USB 3.1 xHCI 1.1 controller into VM (so I can add Audio card and WiFi/Bluetooth as USB dongles).
    Pure fun, but would be nice to see how it works.

    At which point it is easier to install OS X native... without nVidia Grid (which costs north of £1.5K)

    HV is just the wrong tool for personal use.

    It's great if you have a server, even a tiny home/microserver, then especially using RemoteFX it becomes a great thing.

    But for the normal use on a single PC running one or few VMs (including Windows and Linux WMs) WMware or Virtualbox are way way better.

    That said I agree with the fun part. I've just spent almost a week to restore the WMDRM support on windows anniversary...

    It's absolutely useless for me, but will be a life savior for the US users.

    I think I have tried hackintosh on Hyper-V one time in the past and it run fairly well. The major problems was with the camera and audio.

    I am sure you are mistaken. OS X on Hyper-V is definitely a NO GO
