Some very IMP questions before installing OSX86 for the FIRST TIME

Recommended Posts



This is gonna be my first time installing osx86 on a pc and ive downloaded uphuck_10.4.9_1.4a.. now ive read other threads where people have been having major issues with it.. so am just wondering if the release is a bad one and should it be avoided? or are there people out there with a successful install as well?


Another thing is i believe i need to create a new partition and format it as as MAC HFS+ Journalled from the DVD Disk Utilities program.. now would i lose any data while partitioning?


And if by any chance the installation isnt successful, can i easily get back into windows? as i currently have windows installed and dont want to remove it.. plus im going to be using my 1 n only PC which has a SATA HDD in it to install osx86 which i currently use with windows atm.


so is it safe to install OSX86? keep in mind i really really want to install OSX86..


Feedback from all users appreciated..

bump!! some answers pls..


You will erase your windows partition if you partition with disk utility.


safest move is to get external hd (stick an old HD into a usb unit) and install to that.


Once you know what you are doing, then install to your HDD.
