Apart from the legal issues of installing Mac software on non-apple hardware, I think it would require at least INTEL based hardware. m 0 l 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. m 0 l Related resources How to install mac os for AMD Turion X2 RM-70 - Forum Bootable Mac OS X installation partition from hard drive? - Forum Can't run Mac OS X Lion on Virtualbox; because of AMD processor - Forum Can I install Mac OS X on this rig? - Forum install Mac OS x 5.4 on ibook g4 laptop - Forum Can't find your answer ?

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. m 0 l acerace November 3, 2011 7:49:54 AM Wow, now I know how hard it is to install Mac OS. m 0 l 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.) m 0 l acerace November 3, 2011 1:35:42 PM So, its hard a little on AMD pc. Hmm, nah, I just stick to Windows. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
