Installing macosx x86 on PC

OK, So i have a version of snowlepord that's been modified to be installed on x86 processors, AMD or Intel... AMD in my case and the specific mod is called Voodoo to run on AMD/ATI chipset and CPU i believe?

So i can boot to the disk just fine, i can use the disk utility and make a partition on the hard drive formatted as Mac extended and install accordingly.
Ive been using EasyBCD to make a boot loader with MBR, has worked like a charm with Linux distros, however, with this utility you cant get to the partition because its asking for a drive path, when you make and format the partition with the mac disk utility you cant assign a drive path ie C: or G: so on and so forth.
So in theory the partition is there, but unaddressable...
Any advice, comments or even some dual booter pros out there who would care to drop me a line , I feel as tho some will obv say GRUB!?
Thanks All.

Last year I tried to install Mac OSX 10.5 and 10.6 on a HP xw8200 workstation and I got both to install on a separate HDD but wouldn't boot due to inability to in-stall drivers!
I think your best bet would be to use a fresh drive and format it with the installer (forgot how i did it). Here's a link you might get more info from;
