    Can't. You need Apple hardware to run an Apple OS. You could toy around with OS X86 but it isn't a very elegant solution right now, and it will probably get broke by updates.

    it's can be done. You just need a MacOS x86 installer DVD. But it's not legal. For specification, macOS 10.4.5 use a SSE2 Support for the processor, intel pentium4 minimal. 10.4.9 use a SSE3 processor support, Intel Dual Core above

    Not with the disks from Apple. I said you could do it with the modified disks. But you will not take a retail Apple disk and have it run on your PC.

    We're in grey territory here... let's hold off on this conversation before something is said that shouldn't be - there are other places you can find to get this information, but as was previously stated it's not completely legal.
