Fantastic. Thanks Semthex.

 

I hate to ask, but which of the tutorials is right for me? I'd prefer to dual boot Windows and OS X on one drive, but if I run a lower risk of damage by putting OS X on a completely different hard drive, I can do that as well, just not today.

 

Any thoughts?

I would just like to add one thing as a suggestion to your hardware. Get a Pentium 4 900 series CPU. It is I think the cheapest route to go and still get both dual core and VT. If you plan on running Parralels I have noticed about a 20-30% performance difference on a same speed P4 one w/ VT one without.

Well, see I already have this computer built using the specs above, so I'm stuck with this CPU.

 

My biggest concern is whether or not this computer will run Final Cut Pro. That's why I'm installing OSX86 in the first place. I have to learn Final Cut Pro before I go to film school, and I don't want to have to buy a Mac.

 

So what do you all think?
