    Hi, not sure if this is the right place to post a thread about dual booting. But after searching I couldnt find a better place to post this.

    This is not necessarily a problem rather a question that I want to get some knowledge about before I try.

    So recently I have starting to become somewhat a fan of Mac for music/video editing. Since I just bought a pc couple months ago im not in a position to buy a mac right now. So yea in my pc I have 2 hard drives.

    a 320GB that originally came with pc, and today I just installed the other 250GB HD which I had for a while now. So both HD's are working just fine. I have 3 partitions.

    C:\ the whole 320GB HD, Windows 7 installed.
    E:\ and F:\ 250 GB HD

    So I want to install Mac on the second HD and one of the partitions(any). Now my question is, is it possible to install Mac OSx on a PC and if it is can someone point me to the right direction and how i should start.

    Possibly a guide. I know with vmware its possible as well but Im not a big fan of vmware and want to dual boot this way.

    Any help is appreciated, thanks.

    It is not legal to install a Mac operating system on anything other than Apple hardware.
