I have installed MAC OSX Mountain Lion successfully on my windows 7 Quad PC. I tried to open imovie and it stated my card doesn't support quartz extreme. I have a Nvidia 8800 GT card and have been reading but not with a successful solution. Any help greatly appreciated.

It doesn't matter what video card you have if you're running OS X in a virtual machine. The video card is virtualized too.

Then if its virtualized why is it still asking for Quartz extreme video card?

Because there is apparently no OS X driver for the virtual video card that Virtualbox uses.

You can install OS X on your PC like the rest of us, instead of trying to use a virtual machine.

I looked at the install guide in this forum. how can I make sure my mobo will work? Can I try it and roll back changes? how much of a partition is needed for lion? Can I use my external hd for install or does it have to be C drive? My pc is a quad with asus motherboard. Thanks

What do you mean roll back the changes? OS X is an operating system that you install to your hard drive. Did you ever install Windows 7 and then try to "roll back" to your old Windows XP installation? :wacko:

OS X can be installed to any drive attached to your PC, as long as the controller it's connected to is supported by OS X.
Hard drives are cheap. Avoid installing to a drive with other partitions, use an entire drive for OS X, it's easier this way in the beginning. Once you know what you're doing you can mix and match.

There was an iMovie software update released within the past day or two that addresses some problems with it launching it said were caused by 3rd party iTunes plug-ins. Don't know that it will help and since your running VM, I've only ever ran windows in VM from OSX, not the other way around, so am not familiar with how it behaves. None the less, might as well see if you can apply the update via the Mac Appstore, and if you can't, there's yet another reason to do a true install of OSX to your hard drive.

Do the one where you learn the most. It'll be useful later.

It's the end result that matters but like I said it's better if you learn something along the way.

I'm not sure if I understand your question...are you asking me to read them for you and then tell you what the differences are?

Is there a reason why you can't do that yourself?

No need to be rude I can read them myself and have but I still don't understand what the major difference between the 2 installation ways are. Is one superior that others prefer? Thanks I have a ASUS MOBO http://www.asus.com/...775/P5E_Deluxe/

I'm not being rude. You need to ask better questions if you want help.

If there's something that you don't understand please be specific about what it is because I can't guess what it is that you don't understand. I can't see inside your head. I have no idea which guides you are talking about.

At this moment neither VMWare (Workstation or Fusion) nor Virtualbox support Quartz Extreme / CoreImage, so you can't use applications that require that, like iMovie, Final Cut Pro, Chess, and so on.

There is no workaround either at this moment. What you can do is buy a computer / notebook that supports it and install it natively like you do with windows. There are even tablets with OS X but no idea of Quartz Extreme support.

You can take a look in here: http://www.macbreaker.com/
