• Running OSX from a home-built computer?
    12 replies, posted
Alright, so I know about jack-shit about Mac OSX or anything of the sort. We use it in TV Production class, but that's really my only experience with it. It's decent with Adobe programs, and I wanted to start recording my own music and Mac is the thing to have when it comes to that. 1) Is it possible to install the Mac OS on a PC? 2) If yes, can it be dual booted?
Yes to both, but you need a special version that's not official.
1. Get an efi-x 2. Hackintosh? The efi-x allows dual booting.
[QUOTE]1) Is it possible to install the Mac OS on a PC?[/QUOTE] Yes. You can install Hackintosh (OSX86), but your processor must be compatible (If you're on Windows, Start > Right click on My Computer > Properties: Should give you your processor. You need an Intel or AMD64, IIRC). [QUOTE]2) If yes, can it be dual booted?[/QUOTE] Yes.
I have an Intel Pentium Dual-Core CPU @ 2.50 GHz, model E5200?
Should work. Any Pentium 4 processor or higher, or an AMD64.

People like you make me rage. Acid music studio is a great sound recording software.

A proper sound card along with a good microphone and some good recording software, and you'd probably be able to get similar results.

Yes, you can. It's far cheaper - but "seamless" hardware support is going to be missing.

That's an advantage for Apple computers, and not really OS X.
