  1. Hey,

    Is it possible to install MAC on my computer (and how/where to get it)?
    I never saw an installion CD/DVD, but I'm not sure if they exist.
    I dont want to buy an expensive Apple computer/laptop because I already have one.

    Here are my computer details:

    (from dxdiag)

    System: Microsoft Windows XP Professional
    BIOS: Default System BIOS
    Processor: ADM Athlon(tm) 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 3600+, MMX, 3DNow (2CPUS)
    Memory: 3072MB RAM
    Grapichs: NIVIDIA GeForce 6200
    Sound: C-Media CM6501 Like Sound Device

    Will it possible to run/install Mac on those specs?

    We do not allow the discussion of how to install Apple's OS X operating system onto Windows based PCs and computers as it is in violation of their EULA.

    Its not MAC, thats Media Access Control, and is used as an id for a network interface controller.

    AMD makes processors not ADM which is Archer Daniels Midland, a grain company (with other fingers).

    I don't know what NIVIDIA is, but nvidia does graphics. Perhaps you meant that.


    To get to something slightly more helpful - OS X does have true (well until Lion) install CD/DVDs. And, yes its probably possible in a limited and restricted or non upgradeable form. But this is not the forum for that kind of help. Do a google for hackintosh or osx86 there are a couple well established places that you'll find with those search terms that can give you some guidance.
