    The specs of the computer would help.

    it's called hackintosh. I tried to install it on my pc but I didn't succeed in doing it. It is very hard, you know... and you need a intel or AMD... i don't know more info but it says on their webpage but I can't remember it

    lol, if even for me, an iPhone & Mac developer was a pain in the ass to get OSX on my PC (without succeeding at all), you don't want to imagine how difficult is it going to be for you if you don't even know your PC specs

    my recommendation is: don't bother, buy a mac
