Is it possible?

The only reason I ask is because OSX prevents me from installing on this PC because I have an IDE DVDROM.

I don't have the money to buy a SATA DVDROM yet.

Can I acuire a Mac OSX cloned image and clone it onto one of my HDDs?

What are your PC specs?

I have never heard of problems with IDE roms,

Yes, but it would have to be patched appropiately (depending on your current specs).

Yes, it's true.

It has something to do with JMicron(or something)

I run an ASUS P5B-E and Intel Core 2 Duo E6600

 

I read on these forums and on a few other ones that I CANNOT install Mac OSX on this PC because I don't have a SATA DVDROM

 

These are some threads:

Yes it is the JMicron-chip which causes problems during the installation. But instead of investing your money into a SATA ROM get an external USB-ROM device or just buy a converter for your internal IDE-ROM.

I had no luck with the installation using a SATA burner. Only when I switched to the USB-ROM the installation with JAS 10.4.8 went fine.

 

Good luck
