Greetings nice people.

I would like to examine the possibility of installing osx to my desktop pc. The specs are:

 

motherboard gigabyte GA-965P-DS3 rev3.3, P965/ICH8, s775, award bios

cpu intel core2quad q6700

ram 8gb

audio alc888 onboard

graphics nvidia 9800gt 1gb

ethernet marvell 8056

 

which version of osx should I go for and where could I obtain it as I have no access to a mac?

Please tell me how to begin. Thank you in advance.

How do I execute the Flash Drive Maker and Clover Installer from windows (or perhaps ubuntu) as I don't have a mac computer?

I have never used a Virtual Machine before. So I googled it and found this website:

 

http://www.wikigain....tan-virtualbox/

 

Followed the instructions to the letter, however all I get is an empty black window when the VM starts.

update: the VM is working now! Had to use an older version (4.3.40) and only 1 CPU. Also, Flash Drive Maker and Clover Installer work.

Please tell me where to find the OS X El Capitan installer so I can drag it into the Flash Drive Maker window.

umm, I can mount the EFI partition with diskutil, I can see the contents of the Clover folder, how can I "send" it to you? do you mean as an attachment?

Any ideas how to get past the "ACPI: sleep states S3 S4" point? I have tried changing various bios settings but the issue persists. Is it possible that this motherboard cannot even boot the installer?

No idea, bro. Try other version FakeSmc or go to bios settings and try changes.

I have six machines here with cpu sockets 478, 775, 1151 and I can install and run windows, debian, ubuntu and arch on all of them very easily and witout a single problem.

This however, is different. All I wanted to try was Logic Pro X but the whole process is beyond me. I don't know what a fakesmc is, where to find it, or how to install it.

Thanks to all the people who helped. I am giving up.
