Help figuring out which distro to use

Hi guys


I'm trying to get OSX installed on my pc, however I'm having a lot of trouble getting it to work.


Specs: Mobo: gigabyte ga-h55m-ud2h

CPU: Intel Core i7-870 lga 1156

Video: Evga gtx 560 ti

Ram: Corsair xms3 2x4GB DDR3

HDD: 1.5TB Western Digital sataII



All parts are brand new. I have a copy of Windows 7 installed. Could that be an issue? Should I try to install on a completely empty harddrive? Ideally, I want to dual boot.


I have two copies of OSX Snow Leopard; one retail, and iAtkos S3 v2.


Retail, I tried booting with [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url], it would flash the grey screen then reboot. I burned 3 copies of the disk on three different brand dvd's.


iAtkos, I would try installing using the tags (Read them in a thread somewhere in my journey):

-v -x cpus=1 maxmem=1024


I would get the error "efi_inject_get_devprop_string null trying stringdata" then it would reboot.


Any help I can get would be GREATLY appreciated
