Neaded staff:


1. Mac OS X 10.4.(1-8) Install DVD (on a DVD+R or -R NO RW!)

2. A PC with a compatible DVD drive (to install OS X)

3. First of all be sure that OSX can run on your computer before attempting anything like a dual boot.


How to:


1. Get a prepatched OSX install image (look at torrent sites for that).

2. Burn the image to an empty dvd recordable on slow speed(+R or –R NO RW!).

Use your favorite burn program for this (Nero, Alcohol 120%, MagicISO, PowerISO e.t.c).


Dont procced at the next step until you backup all important data on your computer.


3. Insert the OSX install disk and reboot your computer.

4. Boot the DVD, when the grey Apple stops spinning, select Language for the installation.

5. On the top of the screen, click "Utilities" and then click "Disk Utility".

6. Disk Utility starts. Select your Hard Disk. Chose "erase" tab and set the Volume Format to "Mac OS extended (journaled)" and erase it.

7. Wait until the process finishes and then close Disk Utility.

8. Follow the installation steps on your screen, select the HD with the partition you made in step 6 and choose "Customize".

In the "Customize" window, select either the Intel or AMD. Choose more packages if they fit in your hardware.

9. After finishing the installation, wait for the computer to reboot, remove the install disk and enjoy your Intel/AMD-Mac Os X (x86) installation.


Good luck.

Use the OnBoard Graphics to install.

Chose ONLY the basic packages on installer no any other support exept the very basic one.



Problem, OnBoard Graphic, (VIA) sometimes, don't want to power on, I think it's burned...

I only installed, AMD enabler, AMD SSE3, and the First one (I don't remember what's)

My 17" monitor is in stand-by mode when I release it from AGP's and install it on OnBoard.


EDIT: I need to release AGP card for use OnBoard???

Ok Oracle, I'm downloading the PPF1, PPF2 iso via-UTorrent, in my Vista PC (spinning mac...) I'm too looking at VGA config on my girlfriend's computer (the same mainboard is a good thing, hehe), I only see a option, VGA or PCI.... I haven't got a PCI graphical card, so I selected VGA, I'm now looking for any option like "Disable AGP" or "Select graphic out"....


PD: My mainboard is an MSI K8MM3, VIA K8M800 chipset... I preffer American Megatrends BIOS... but I have this, I can't change it now... properly..


EDIT: THNX Oracle67, I think I've got a bad release of JaS DVD.
