Thread: Looking to install OS X on PC

  1. #1
    Default Looking to install OS X on PC
    Ok you read the title so you know what I want but I have some questions.. I know absolutley nothing about mac's OS idk what tiger leopard or anything other cats they have maybe a puma.. So what's the differences between them and any tips for installing it is appreciated...

    thanks

    Update: I succesfully installed OS X I used Kalyway 10.5 and EasyBCD for dual boot worked flawlessly Leopard is really nice and people should just buy PC hardware to save from buying the super expensive apple hardware. BTW updates work and everything I recommend a 15GB partition minimum

    try the leo4allv3 install...greatest osx86 build out there. Compatible with pretty much every piece of hardware...i have it running on my hp dv6000 beautifully! once you get a hold of it, its very simple to install...you'll get the hang of it. If you can't figure it out yourself, then you shouldn't even be attempting something like this or you may screw up your HD. Keep in mind that the Sleep function doesn't work on any system and if you have a laptop, the battery drains drastically...i can get up to 3 hours on windows, and about an hour on leopard.

    If you don't mind doing a bit of reading, these 2 sites will take you a long way to setting up a Hackintosh:
    InsanelyMac Forum

    HCL 10.5.2 - OSx86

    I'm a helpful jerk, fear me.

    I agree, insanelymac is a great resource. It can be painless to set up and can be a nightmare, sometimes you get lucky. Its always worth it though. Do your homework first, makes the process a lot easier. I've successfully set up OSX on more than 15 machines and its always a unique adventure!

    I used Kalyway 10.5.2 and it took me a good while to get it set up the way I want it. Still a few blips (QE/CI not working, and no Line In) but it works great and more efficiently than my Windows side. I don't really boot into Windows anymore.

    I don't have the balls to try it 'for real', as it were, so am in the process of doing it using VMware. See instructions here PCWiz Computer - [Mac OSx86] 10.4.8 VMware Installation Guide
    Can't say yet whether it works properly or not.

    This works fine. I used it for about 20 minutes then got bored. Didn't have ethernet though, and it runs pretty slow. Might try it again

    You can create a new partition on your hard drive pretty easily and play with it there. You won't mess anything up. If it doesn't work or you don't like it, all you gotta do is delete the partition and viola!

    I wish I could use my 10.5 install disks on my Vaio. I'd like to eliminate windows from the house completely. At least maybe run VMware and be able to use my apple Leo 10.5 disk or something.

    If you feel like dedicating time to it you can create your own distribution with your original apple discs. Its a lot easier however to use a pre-made one. Most important thing is to check compatibility with your hardware and OS X & your distribution of choice.

    I tried doing this awhile back and ran into a ton of problems just trying to find a good OSx86 disk to burn and getting the darn thing to install...
