    I know this forum has no section about hackint0shing, but I'm totally clueless on how to do this: Run OSX Tiger on my PC.

    I have the Installation disks for OSX 10.4 Tiger.
    I have a 20 GB Hard Drive ready for use.

    How do I install this now.

    Specs for my PC are

    1.2 GHZ Intel Pentium III Processor
    1 GB Ram
    Win XP
    64 MB Video Card


    PS. Can I Dual Boot with XP?

    I don't think you can use the official OS X Tiger installation CDs on a PC.

    The only way for you would be a hackintosh dvd, but with your video card and cheep processor it would just unstable

    Yea... no. I know there are a lot of fake jailbreak videos these days, but you shouldn't think everything on youtube is fake. I don't think someone would take apart their Macbook, put it in a PC casing just to make it look like a Hackint0sh.
