Can I install Mountain Lion(10.8.2) without a Mac?

Recommended Posts

Hello folks, first post after a while...last time I entered InsanelyMac I was trying to install Snow Leopard on my 5930G...the pre-installed Vista burnt down by itself, and I had to format and install Win7. Oh well.


Ok, now I have built a new computer with these specs:


MoBo: Asrock Z77 Pro3

CPU: i5 3570K

RAM: Corsair Vengeance 8GB(2x4GB)

HDD: Seagate Barracuda 1TB SATA2(recycled from my old PC)

PSU: Corsair GS700

VGA: Gigabyte GTX 670 WindForce


Yeah, a freakin' gaming PC. And it does its job(gaming) damn good.

However, now I have a dual-boot with Windows and Arch Linux. And yesterday it came to my mind: "Hey, I could do a triple-boot with OSX! That would be the most awesome thing since Planescape Torment!"


However, I don't have a Mac.


How can I make an Hackintosh out of this PC, without having a Mac?

Sure. BTW, using OSX to prepare for installing materials is much easier.

What's easier, using this bootable USB or installing Snow Leopard and then upgrading to Lion?

AFAIK, bootable usb.
