    Default Insalling mac osx on a pc
    I'm wanting to get into the apple developing program but I don't have a mac. I was wondering if I could install the mac os on my pc. if so, do I have to buy it or can I just download it. Also, can someone tell me how to multiboot.

    I'm sure you can install OSx86 on a pc. Do you have an Intel processor?

    You would have to build a "Hackintosh"

    And yes you have to buy OSX.

    Its not as easy as that.

    Google "How to build a hackintosh" and tons of information will come up.

    The Dell mini 9 and 10v runs mac OS X very well. I got mine for 200 dollars and connect it to a keyboard and external monitor and run the iPhone SDK.

    OSX86Project.org It took me two weeks of re-writing drivers for mine to work.. after all the hours spent on trying to make it perfect your better off spending the money to just buy a decent mac or a mac mini, considering if your hardware was like mine, just to get a firmware/software upgrade takes patients.

    this can be easily done, it all depends on the processor and mother board and bios settings, i have snow leopard installed on my dell mini 10v netbook now.
