  1. Hi, I apologise if this has already been covered in the forum but I was wondering if a VMWare install of OSX was a good alternative for those of us who have trouble installing OSX natively on our systems? I have been trying for weeks to get OSX on my AMD PC with no success due to a boot0 error and so now I am considering downloading VMWare and installing OSX that way to run alongside my XP. I primarily want to use OSX to try out GarageBand (if I am convinced enough then I will go out and buy a proper mac along with iLife). I am not sure if I can run the iLife program in VMWare and I have read that VMWare can be sluggish but I would imagine that would depend on your system specs (I have an AMD 64 X2 4600+, ASRock ALiveNF5-eSATA2+R3.0 motherboard, 2GB of RAM, GeForce 6600 graphics and 2x SATA2 200GB hard drives). Could anyone advise me either way please.
  2. Hi, I have spent ages trawling through the various posts trying to find out what would be the best version of OS X to get for my current desktop PC setup. I have: Asus K8N4-E Deluxe nForce4 chipset motherboard Revision 1003 BIOS PCI-Express x16 graphics with Nvidia GeForce 6600 256MB graphics card 2GB of RAM Windows XP AMD Athlon 64 3400+ CPU Socket 754 Creative Soundblaster Audigy 2 Platinum internal soundcard 2x 180GB HDD 1x Pioneer DVD RW Drive 1x DVD Rom Drive I hope I haven't left anything out there and I apologise if this information has been posted previously but it is very hard to get a definitive answer as to which version of the new Leopard or Tiger operating systems will work best on my PC. Thanks very much for any help given.
