    Not to my knowledge, no, as MacOS requires specific hardware that has Mac drivers. If your PC hasn't got it, tough luck.

    Read the front page, it's not legal unless you own a Mac!

    the point is that even the website owner says 'Its best to get a legal copy of the ISO because then you can install the software without worry about malicious software or about the software phoning home.'

    i.e. We won't tell you where to get an ISO because getting an ISO without actually owning MacOS is illegal and you could get caught for it. We are also liable having told you where to find illegal material.

    The fact that there's a project dedicated to it suggests that while it may well be possible, it's not going to be straightforward.
