MacOS 10.6.x as a guest

I'm having an older Core2Duo MacMini here running MacOS 10.6.8 (for reasons) - I'm interested in virtualizing this machine. Have searched the web and read several topics - there are few pages which covers topics for modern MacOS versions but haven't found things on such an old MacOS. Anyone a tip if 10.6.x is working?

Thanks a lot!

Maybe an old hackintosh iso? I virtualized a lot of MacOS versions throughout the years and they all followed the same logic. Use the hackintosh-based tools to archieve what you want, maybe this also works here. IIRC, there was once a way to just do that in VMware Fusion and Parallels, so there might be a way. Yet the OS is 14 years old, so it may be very hard.
