    Hackintosh made easy by allowing us to work as separate virtual machine, rather than disturbing existing physical OS. After Apple has released the final retail version of Mac OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion, this VMware image made from latest version by a reliable source.
    The pre installed VMware image is created by souldevteam and all credits go to them.
This method is completely for testing and learning purpose only. You cant get the all features of Mac OS X from this method as how it works on Apple hardware. We always recommend to buy Apple hardware to run Mac OS X. 
 
What all Required to Run 10.8 Mountain Lion Retail VMware Image on Windows

1) Hardware Virtualization Technology (VT) enabled processor. I do not fully recommend VT pypasser (to skip this check) tool which is included in this download.
2) Pre installed VMware image with few tools. VMware unlocker and darwin.iso are important.

3) VMware workstation 8 or later versions
 
Easy Steps

1) Download Mountain Lion 10.8 Retail VMware Image>> Google it...
2) Use 7z program to unzip the download, after extraction the size should be around 6.2 GB

3) Check and make sure your physical computer processor supports Hardware Virtualization Technology (VT).  Read our previous guide about how to use VT checker tool and confirm it.
4) Use VMware unlocker (which will be available on same extracted location) and patch the existing VMware workstation 7 or 8 series. Use the correct version of unlocker. Read more about how to use VMware unlocker to get Mac OS X guest support.
After the patch, make sure you are getting Apple Mac OS X option as shown below.

5) Once the step 3 and 4 are succeeded, open OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion.vmx from extracted location through VMware workstation File Open menu.

6) That should open the pre installed Mountain Lion retail VMware virtual machine. Before powering on, you can modify processor and RAM settings depending on available resources on physical computer. I have increased the RAM to 2GB and number of processor cores to 2 as I have core2duo physical processor.

7) Now power on the virtual machine. If all settings are correct, the Mac OS X 10.8 virtual machine should start with initial setup screen of Language settings as below.
Thats it, we are almost done. After completing all initial settings (you can skip few too), you should land on mountain lion desktop without any issues.

I recommend to take a snapshot now before proceeding further.
 
Install VMware Tools on Mac OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion Virtual Machine

Network and sound worked out of the box without additional installations or settings.

To get more screen resolution sizes, VMware shared folder and slightly better performance, we need to install VMware tools on mountain lion virtual machine.
8.) To install, load the darwin.iso file to virtual machines CD/DVD drive. Darwin.iso located at same extracted place.

Once it is loaded to CD/DVD drive, the virtual machine will automatically detect and load it on desktop as below.

Double click and run Install VMware Tools application. You may need to enter your password and select the disk to continue the installation.
For some reasons, VMware tools installation failed on Mountain lion virtual machine, but nothing to worry. Press close and restart the virtual machine manually.

9) After virtual machine is restarted, you will find more screen resolutions under display settings. Also, the full screen mode (from VMware menu bar) will work now.

 
VMware Shared Folders on Mountain Lion 10.8 and Windows 7

Few users reported that drag and drop of files between Mac OS X guest and Windows host is not working even after VMware tools installation. Yes, it is not working and we cant complain about it, because VMware is not officially supporting Mac OS X virtualization on non Apple hardware. So, we need to live with it.
But, if you like to transfer files between Mac OS X guest and Windows host frequently without any types of networking connectivity or network sharing, then you can use VMware shared folders feature. This will work only after VMware tools installation.

            You can access specific folders or partitions of Windows 7 host OS thorough VMware shared folders from Mountain Lion guest OS. That will enable the file transfer back and forth easily. It is nothing to do with networking or network file sharing, it is completely a different technology.
To set it up, go to virtual machine
