Can I install a Mac OS X 10.6 on a PC?

Hello,

My question is: Can I install an Mac OS on a PC that run windows before?

Currently I'm running Windows 7 Ultimate, And now if I'll buy an OS from Apple store, will it will be possible to install this on my PC (because of the drivers and stuff..)

Thanks!

Please follow davems advice and visit insanelymac. You will find that creating a Macintosh is not a project for the fainthearted. You will need to find or create little files called kexts to make the Mac OS work on your PC. It can be done but be prepared to work at it. I am proving a link to insanelymac for you. Good luck.

Yea, but it's illegal. And you have to be a hacker/ really know mac OS. you can't just drop in a disc. google insanelymac for a forum that can help.. if its a AMD pc, than no. just no. if it's intel, then ther's a chance. Some things may not work, like WIFI, or graphics acceleration (like it will work, but no games/video), but you may just need to buy a 30 dollar nvidia 9400gs from newegg to get the graphics going perfectly

My computer is an Intel computer, So what you're saying that if I want to install Mac OSX on my PC all I need to do is switch some graphic parts and some other things and I'm done?

You can do a AMD--its just 10 times more difficult.

Some websites might have ISO images that you can burn to discs or you can use a virtual machine to boot the ISO image. I would just be careful because using those ISO images are most likely illegal but I am not a lawyer.
