Hi to all!

I would install on my PC a version of OSx86.

My first question is: I'm italian, what version is the best for me? (i know the existence of iDeneb, Iatkos, Kalyway and many others)

2) It exist in italian?

3) Can i install it on my PC?
Here is my pc's component:

- Intel I7 875
- Ram 8 gb ddr3
- NVidia GTS250
- MoBo: Asus P7H57D-V Evo

4) Can I install in a virtual partition? I have installed Seven and Ubuntu and I would keep the bootloader (i have first windows one, then grub... i have installed linux via wubi)...

Thanks a lot!!!!

1. Just use #####. You can obtain it from tonymacx86.com
2. No but you can set OS X's native language to Italian so essentially yes you can have Italian language.
3. Yes you can. Just follow some of the guides on this forum.
4. Yes you can install it on another partition, but you have to use Chameleon or Chimera as the boot loader and not the Ubuntu or Win7 boot loader.

Hi thanks for you fast reply :dance_24:

I downloaded ##### and read something on this site... but i still don't understand what really is...
Can explain me? :unsure:

Are you sure that i can't keep my Win7 bootloader? Is it possibile to keep each bootloader in the right order? For example like wubi install I have first win7 then if i select ubuntu on win7 bootloader it starts with grub...

Thanks a lot :yoji: :D And sorry for my bad english :D

##### is the utility (boot loader) used to essentially boot your system because the boot loader on OSX is only designed for a Mac (UEFI) and not PC hardware (BIOS). You need ##### to initially install OSX. Once OSX is installed you can install the Chameleon or Chimera boot loader on your HDD to eliminate the need from booting off the boot cd.

OK here is what happens. You have 3 installations. 1 is Win7, another is Ubuntu, and the last is OSX. If they are all on separate physical hard drives then this is no problem. Just install OSX on your hard drive and point your BIOS to boot off of that drive first. Chameleon/Chimera has the option of booting off all of your hard drives (be it Win7, Ubuntu, etc.). If you have all the OSes installed on 1 physical hard drive with multiple partitions, then it will be a little different. Depending on where each boot loader is (I assume Win7 has System Reserved, that is where the boot loader is stored, and Ubuntu I am not familiar with), Chameleon/Chimera will still essentially take over the startup process. It does not matter. You can still boot off all of your operating systems through Chameleon/Chimera with no problem.

You're welcome and don't worry about the English :)

Thanks a lot for your help :D
And your understanding :hysterical:

Then if I would install a OSx86 version i shall boot before from ##### (right?) then it will load another input source to install OSx86? :hysterical: Like one of the first hack of Playstation 2, to understood (you insert this dvd called swap magic, then extract it and insert your fake game)? :D

Or is it an installation of OSx86?
If not what version of Hackintosh i should use?

Thanks :D :D :D :D


EDIT: Oh, maybe i've understood... it's a bootloader on a CD right?
And only by this you can install Chameleon or Chimera...
I've installed without any help a version of iDeneb on my girlfriend's pc (she doesn't use it, :rolleyes: xD) - the pc before was mine - dualbooting xp and macos without any external loader (i've installed chameleon from "personalize" menu from operating system installation).
Can't I perform the same operation that i've done before? (the mac version is 10.6.2, if I remember)
Is the way to install different from 10.6.x to 10.7.x?
Then what version i should obtain to install last MacOS on my pc? :)

Thanksssssss :D


EDIT 2: I've remembered that if i would boot MacOS on my virtualized pc (on VMWare Workstation) i must use a "darwin_snow" iso... is it egual or similar to #####? :D

Thanks :D


EDIT 3: Ooooh i've understood maybe xD
Shall I require an original MacOS DVD right?xD

Thanks :D

Another question: if I would remove the partition where Mac is installed on... what i shall do?
To restore bootloader, and go on :)

Thanks to all :)
