I got to a school that uses apple computers, but upon startup, you can choose between windows 7, and OSX. I have a custom machine, and I was wondering if it is possible for me to do the same. I want to have windows 7, and then some Mac OS. Also, if this is possible, could I use programs such as garageband, but still use programs for windows? (Not at the same time, for example: use garageband, then switch to windows and play some games.)
I think that kind of system is referred to as a hackintosh, you'll have to google that for some idea of whats involved though, you can't just install a mac Os on a windows Pc, I know that much :-)
It is "sometimes" possible to install OSX on non-Apple hardware but it's hackish (hence the Hackintosh reference). Unfortunately it's also a violation of the OSX terms of service and against my own personal beliefs against using shitty software so we can't really do more than tell you of its existence.

Oh I couldn't agree more. However, terms of service violations are a good way to get a product key disabled (although I'm not sure if this has ever happened with Hackintoshes, I know that Apple won a suit against someone selling them)
