Yes, for example, although starting out with a triple booting setup might be a little drastic if you haven't done that before.

There are tons of guides like that (simpler ones too) so take your pick. Or mix and match, use whatever works for you. There is no law in the arena.

Don't be afraid to experiment, you can't break your computer by installing an operating system on it.

I don't use install guides, I have my own retail installation method that works with the hardware I have.


Use whatever the guide you follow says you should use.


You should probably try to find a guide for a motherboard that has Intel P45+ICH10/ICH10R chipset like yours. Like the Gigabyte EP45 or Asus P5Q series for example.


Some boot CDs, all based on the Chameleon bootloader - type each into google and see what you can come up with:

Empire EFI


There are more, I can't remember them all.


You can make your own Chameleon boot CD if you know your hardware well enough and you have access to a working OS X installation, on a real Mac for example.

yea.. i burned it on a cd-R.

in the meantime i tryed to get OSX on a USB stick.

but you need a real mac for that. and i dont have one.

so i tryed it using vmware.

but no luck. its says could not restore can not allocate memory.

so im stuck.

after a while it shows a circle with a diagonal stripe in it. do you know what that means??

well i forgot to enable ACHI thing in the bios.


now it works.


but i have a question.


2 years ago i built my computer. but when i put 4 GB in (or a certain RAM module) i got CRC errors.


can this be the reason why it says: could not install the nesseary suport files when i try to install OSX??

im still trying to figure out witch on the broken on is.
