    I've heard of people booting versions of os x on their windows vista computers before, does anyone know how, or can they link me to a good tutorial?

    Also, what is the cost to do this? Is it free?

    Thanks

    We've been talking about this for several months. This has been going on for several years.

    Where have you been?

    Google: osx86

    Yeah, I've done this. I've run Leopard, and I just used PartitionMagic to create a 50GB partition on my hard drive.

    EDIT: It ran for me, on:

    Windows Vista - Home Premium (32-bit OS) SP1 - Not that this matters, although..
    1.9 GHz AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual-Core Processor
    2GB RAM
    nVidia graphics/video card.

    I can't do anything with that except for suggesting Kalyway 10.5.2 Intel/AMD.

    What does that have to do with osx86? Psystar is creating a BUSINESS from it.

    Knowing about technology is a life. I could say the same about you.

    Stop learning objective C and get a life.
