New User - Installing OSX On This Computer?

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I am looking to install Snow Leopard on my PC.

 

I have seen two ways of doing this via [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] or HackBoot? Which one of these methods is best?

 

Here is the spec of my computer. Would I be able to install OSX with these components?

 

Intel Core i3 530 2.93GHz (Clarkdale) (Socket LGA1156)

Corsair 4GB (2X2GB) DDR3 PC3-10666C9 (1333MHz) Dual Channel Kit

Gigabyte GA-H55M-UD2H Intel H55 (Socket 1156) DDR3 microATX Motherboard

Corsair CX 400W ATX Power Supply

Seagate Barracuda 7200.12 500GB SATA-II 16MB Cache

Sony Optiarc AD-5240S 24x DVD±RW SATA ReWriter (Black)

ATI Radeon HD 5400 Series Graphics Card

 

I plan to have two hard drives? One for Windows 7 and one for OSX. Would I simply be able to choose which one to boot into on start up? Similar to GRUB with Linux?

 

Any advice would be much appreciated.

 

Thanks,

Tom

Thanks for your reply.

 

Are those instructions for [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] or HackBoot or both?

 

What is this step? "and set sata to achi"

 

Is that changing configurations on the mobo?
