I've just read five different guides from this site and the wiki and ALL of them expected you to have a working install of mac os on a hard drive to install it. Isn't this a HUGE catch22? Is there a guide to do a fresh install? I did this a LONG time ago and vaguely remember not being able to burn the image with my windows box. Where is there a guide that covers all this in step by step noob form?

I bought my hardware based off the wiki.

That's one of the lists of guides I'm talking about. I haven't been through them all but so far it's useless to me.

There needs to be a big bold guide at the top of pages like that that's step by step for the complete noob.

Mainly I'm concerned with booting. I don't want to waste dvd's and I thought I had to do something wierd last time (like maybe extract the dmg to the base of the hard drive i'm going to use?) My friend said he thought he remembered Kalyway would boot, but maybe that you had to burn in from within osx, which becomes another catch 22. :D

 

Hardware:

Intel E2180 processor

Gigabyte ga-p35-ds3l motherboard w/integrated sound

nvidia 8600gs 512 ddr3 video card

wd 500gb hd (can't remember the model)
