Picture of Installing Hackintosh/OSx86 10.4.8 on your PC!
Update: I got my new laptop and i'm making an instructable for 10.5.2, look for it within the next few days.

I AM IN NO WAY RESPONSIBLE FOR WHAT YOU DO WITH THIS INFORMATION... PLEASE KEEP IN MIND YOU MUST BE AN APPLE DEVELOPER TO INSTALL MAC OS X ON YOUR PC WITHOUT BREAKING THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS/EULA! I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR THE METHOD USED TO GET THE INSTALL DVD FOR THIS PROJECT. *YOU MUST HAVE AN OS X TIGER LICENSE TO USE THE DVD.*

You need:
-a pc with windows xp or vista preinstalled
-"JaS 10.4.8 AMD Intel SSE2 SSE3" dvd/iso Fixed Link (please seed when done)
-if you have an intel processer with SSE3 (see step 2) then use this. (smaller file) (please seed when done)
->20 gig hard drive
-cpu-z (http://www.cpuid.com/download/cpuz_144.zip)
-other software (as needed)
-experience w/ computers

Step 1: Cheak compatability & backup...

Run cpu z and look in the middle for sse2 if it has this you will be able to install osx.
if you have sse3 then that is even better.


back all important data, have xp/recovery disk handy.

Step 2: Partition

(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

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?

I think a Athlon is too old. Which Athlon is it? Is it 64-bit? If so, you can try Kalyway 10.5.

 Of course

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

You can run Yosemite on that CPU. Tiger is pretty obsolete these days.

Let me know if you need a Tutorial.

Yeah,i got a laptop with core i5 but still don't know why it didn't work with Yosemite

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.

when i did this it wouldnt install :\ the spinny thing at the beginning would start and never stop
rug4 years ago
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
redfox2805 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)  redfox2805 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.
