Re: Apple's OS X

Hello Tj13,

It’s fun tinker with computers.  I have a dual boot laptop that runs Windows XP and Ubuntu Linux that I love to play on!

There are problems, though, with trying to install and run Mac Os X on a PC-based computer.  Firstly, based on my research into your question, the PC platform isn’t designed to handle the Mac OS and a lot of tweaks are necessary to get it to work, none of which are recommended procedures.

Secondly, Apple’s License Agreement doesn’t allow the Mac OS to be installed on non-Apple hardware.  It states in part:  “You agree not to install, use or run the Apple Software on any non-Apple-labeled computer, or to enable others to do so.”

I hope this helps.

Re: Apple's OS X

No.  To restate what John-BBY said, not only is it technically very difficult, it's also illegal!   It simply cannot be done without a high-level understanding of computers -- you certainly can't just put in a OS X install disc and expect it to work.
