(You May Lose Data In This Step)
The os x dvd does not have a very good partitioning tool. You need another partitioning tool. Use whatever you like. Partitioning is simple, you should be able to find instructions on hoe to partition.

You need:
Your XP/Vista partition
An os x partition Fat32
(Optional but recomended) an os share partition. Fat32

thanks

 Of course

Most new mobos support SSE 3, and judging by the processor, It;s an new one.

i have a 2nd hand hp pavilion ze4200 laptop that runs xp, is it possible to run mac os x 10.2 on that?
No. Mac OS X 10.3 and below only support Power PC CPUs. Tiger is the earliest version of OS X to support Intel CPUs.

P.S.
I like my new computer!

is there any mac os that i could open and run off a 2gb usb ????
junits15 rug4 years ago
no but you can legally run mac os server inside virtualbox on a windows machine, you just need a ton of ram and a really powerful processor

 Love this guide! Noticed it a little to late though.

I installed Hackintosh on a custom PC around a week or two ago. I have one problem though, the sound and internet (onboard, non-wireless) drivers dont work.Major suckage, considering I was going to use it to compose music and mix. All I really need is the sound. Would you know how to fix that? 
 Did you check for a mac driver for your soundcard? to see if it is even Mac compatible 
this can come in handy :D

so are you saying that if I follow these steps and use "JaS 10.4.8 AMD Intel SSE2 SSE3" dvd/iso that i could install OSX onto my AMD Athlon computer?
Xap (author)  hacker34554 years ago
you should be able to if it supports sse2
redfox2804 years ago
 what if you have an AMD processor? Mine says "MMX (+), 3DNow! (+)" in CPU Z
BTW my processor is an AMD Athlon MP. AKA Thoroughbred
Xap (author)  redfox2804 years ago
your processer must support sse2 to install any version of OS X. sorry.

Before any of you attempt this DO SOME RESEARCH. Check of system/hardware compatability. More than likely if you did not know about booting OSX to your PC you will not have a clue about how to manually install the proper drivers. If your monitor is ATI Mobility Ratheon 7500, you will have to manually install the drivers for it. Which means you will have to know how to use Terminal. Also, it means you will have to find the proper driver package. Booting OSX on a pc does work, but it is not as simple as just creating a partition, booting OSX. It would be great if this instructable showed how to use terminal to load drivers using terminal.
actually it is. there's a few programs out there that call themselves one-clicks. you download it, make a partition, put the disk in, turn it off, turn it back on, and boot from disk. simple as that.

a good way to partition and get around the pesky access denied phase is to DEFRAGMENT THE FREE SPACE. it's very simple, and it works. go into a third party defragmenter (AKA defraggler) and defragment the free space under file. then go into the vista defragmenter and try again. if it doesn't work, then make sure you defragmented the entire free space so there's no fragments. it doesn't matter if you have fragments in the main drive, only the free space, though it's a good idea to defragment the used space, too.

not very most macs have at least 2 Gigs of ram
dual boot with what?
yes the boot loader will take care of that

These guides all suck. How about a guide which actually takes you step by step through creating a Hackintosh with a LEGAL VERSION OF LEOPARD? Jas et al aren't rocket scientists. Instead of saying download Jas or whomever, how about a guide on making you own Jas? These Leopard DVDs have been out a long time now. Hasn't anyone anywhere written up a step by step guide with links based on starting with a legal DVD? I'd happily pay for that information.
Xap (author)  mesostinky6 years ago
you can do that if your computer supports a bunch of stuff but the only patch made to patch a real dvd was for the leopard prerelease, and most of the time it did not work. And this is legal if you have a tiger license, and an apple developer license.
ProjectZro Xap5 years ago
oh well when the macbooks price goes down ill buy it i just want it for the iphone dev kit and nothing else. they should have included a windows version
The only way it would be legal if you purchased Leopard first... but I could post up an Instructable if you want. I know how.
Actually, apple had a Lawsuit with that guy..
