I don't think you can without a lot of finagling, and I also believe it is against the OSX service agreement.

I didn't wanna mention what it is mainly cause I'm pretty sure it is against the apple service agreement, and most simply torrent copies of OSX to do it.

To amplify. No, you can't just take a disk with OS X installed on it and expect it to boot in a PC. It's a lot more complicated than that.

Simply making the phisical swap wont work. But you can create a hackintosh, wich is a ilegal copy of OSX in a non-apple computer. Once that is created, it may very well be possible to bootcamp into windows, making your system dual-boot

either way, if you buy a Macintosh, you can certainlly dual boot with windows.
