Apart from the legal issues of installing Mac software on non-apple hardware, I think it would require at least INTEL based hardware. | Report abuse jitpublisher November 1, 2011 3:08:18 PM It can be done, just Google for it, there are many guides around the web that can tell you how to do it. | Report abuse JustSomeJoe November 1, 2011 5:42:42 PM I think you'll find 10.2 (Jaguar) was build for PowerPC not Intel/AMD. | Report abuse Related ressources How Could I Install Mac Os On AMD Processer - Forum How to install mac os for AMD Turion X 2 RM-70 - Forum Mac OS X on PC - Forum I have intel i5 system but i can not install the mac OS X - Forum Can I install Mac OS X new motherboard - Forum Ask the community Publish Ijack November 3, 2011 6:52:48 AM Yep. You need 10.4.4 or later to support Intel-type processors (and not every 10.4.4+ disk will work). Even then, installation on AMD is much more difficult than Intel. If you want to do this sort of thing you need to be prepared to do a lot of research yourself as every system is different. Don't expect to get all the answers just by posting on a general forum. | Report abuse acerace November 3, 2011 7:49:54 AM Wow, now I know how hard it is to install Mac OS. | Report abuse Ijack November 3, 2011 8:39:15 AM It's easy. First select your Mac computer .... I look at it this way. You buy a Ford, but you don't like the engine, so you want to put a Chevy engine in. If you're clever that's probably fairly easy. That's an Intel PC. You buy a Toyota Prius, but you don't like the engine, so you want to put a Chevy engine in. Good luck with that. That's an AMD PC. (Chevy say "You can't put our engine in another car" - you can ignore that.) | Report abuse acerace November 3, 2011 1:35:42 PM So, its hard a little on AMD pc. Hmm, nah, I just stick to Windows. | Report abuse Register or log in to remove Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>Mac Os X>Mac os x installation failed amd> Related ressources: ForumMac os x is not supported with software virtualization to run mac os x you need ForumHow to break RSD password for blocked sites ForumHow do I share internet to 2nd router through Mac?
