Hi, I have a windows custom gaming rig that I would like to install my macbook's copy of OSx onto. It has 5 HDDs and i was planing to install OSx into one of the ones that is currently empty. Could someone tell me if this is at all possible and if I can somehow create an option when my computer comes out of bios to ask me what os to load and if I might have hardware errors from using non-standard parts. Thx

perfectly possible.  there isn't really a "primary HDD" because the bootload just points to which location to boot from.

 

If you install say from USB... you're just pointing the program to load certain files from a certian location with said bootflags.

 

You should be able to use a boot CD.... swap the disk... do the install to one of your spare HDD and then install a boot loader such as clover which should recognize ALL your HDD and boot accordingly.
