Processor :- i7-3720QM @2.60
Memory 16 GB
Chipset (Intel QM77 ( Panther point))
Hard disk Primary :- Intel ssd 180 GB
Hard disk sec :- Hitachi 500 Gb ( this HD is also installed in the laptop , not an external HD)

Graphics :- NVS 5400M with optimus

Windows server 2012 is installed on Primary.

Requirement :- Learn IOS development . Want to install Xcode and other components.


I want to dual boot thinkpad with OS X mountain Lion 10.8.2 and Windows server 2012 Datacenter.

Currently the Windows server 2012 is installed on C drive ( intel SSD)

I want to Install the OS X on D Drive ( hitachi ) without losing the Windows.

Gurus please advice on this scenerio.

and how you want install Mac os in your Laptop? man, first steep you need make a USBInstaller of some versions of the MAC OS 10.6, 10.7, 10.8, if you not have a Mac Laptop or desktop for create your installer, you can use windowns and install a Virtual Machine of Mac os and create your USBInstaller.

I installed Vmware + OS X Mountain Lion 10.8.2 VMware image for time being and it's working fine.
I will install the OS X natively sometime later.
Thanks for you help!
