  • Hi,

    SQL Server will not run on Mac os x, we can only install SQL Server 2012 on Windows operating system.

    To work around this issue, you can install virtualization software on Mac os x, then install Windows in a VM and install SQL Server on the  Windows operating system. Also you can install SQL Server 2012 on some remote windows machines and then connect the instance from Mac os x as described in this blog: http://www.razorsql.com/articles/sql_server_mac.html .
