    Default Mac OS X on a PC?
    Hello! Is it possible to install Mac OS X on a PC with an easier method than downloading .iso's, burning to discs, and doing them like that? Like how can I be as minimalistic as possible with this? I have a Mac OS X Snow Leopard installation disc that came with my Mac, and I don't like going to and from them every time I need the other OS, I just want to change OS's on my PC to be easier... Any help is appreciated! Thank you!! And sorry if this is a duplicate post of someone else's, I'm new here :P

    You need a special, hacked, build of Mac OS that will run on a PC. You can't use a standard Mac OS install disc as it is restricted to Apple hardware.

    If you wan to do this, you have to download the correct installers. Better off keeping your Mac a Mac and your PC a PC.
    Until the next time… And if I help you out, give me a "Thanks!" Thanks!

    To the best of my knowledge, VMWare or Parallels can't virtualization Mac OS X in Windows. VirtualBox will allow you do do so.

    I use Parallels to virtualize Windows on my Mac. Sucks RAM like crazy...
