I failed with my laptop a while back, but think I'll try it out on my desktop once I've checked if its going to be compatible, fingers crossed...

i used iatkos (i think it was called) and am running 10.5.

Im running an amdx2 6000.

The only thing that i really had any issues with was partitioning my sata drive, it kept failing to find the root device, in the end i just dug out an old 80gb ide drive and used that

Lovely, after a bit more research it looks promising. My build is a pretty common one, Intel dual core etc.

- I have an *original* Mac OS disk.
- I need boot-132 to fool Mac into thinking my PC is a Mac
- Need to customise boot-132 for my build (this is where I am stuck on)

Its unfortunate that you cannot boot DVD's from boot-132 running off a USB.

Thanks guys!

I have done this on my desktop, it was one of those spur-of-the-moment things i tried without actually researching and got very very lucky as my dekstop turned out to be 90% fully compatible, the only thing that wouldnt work was the NIC built into the motherboard, but adding a pci nic i had laying around got it working 100%, even with full graphics (quartz extreme etc)

I tried it on my laptop but it was very unstable, managed to get native res on my monitor but that was it, jjust got kernel panics when trying to get sound working.

It has actually turned out to be a REALLY REALLY bad idea for me, i kinda fell in love with macOS now which has cost me 1500 to buy a macbook pro haha

Just thinking about PC + Mac OS + VMare + AnyOS + Full Graphics acceleration get me all hot and bothered......

OK maybe too much info there....Can't find a decent guide for my specs.
It is possible to install Mac OS X on an Intel PC, but it has to be built with hardware OS X can support. The place to look is the OS X 86 Project http://wiki.osx86project.org/wiki/index.php/Main_Page you also need to configure it to support EFI, since OS X does not use BIOS.

Also Tekzilla did a great step by step guide using a special bootloader you fit to the motherboard, can't remember the name of it but it was not cheap, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9TGMSey-470 - but this is a lot more straight forward.
