There is a version of OS X that does run on a pc, my friend tried it but couldn't get it to work successfully. I'm pretty sure the OS X and windows xp dual boot only works on intel macs.

I can tell you that it is _possible_ to run OS X on a cpu much like mine. I assume yours has SSE3, so it should be possible for you, too.<br />
<br />
<br />
Even if it doesn't have SSE2 it would be probably be *possible*. I'm going to tell you not to install it though...legal reasons say it's a no-no.

OSX <i>requires</i> SSE1 and SSE2, SSE3 is not neccesary but it might pitch a fit/perform very slowly if you don't have it.<br />
<br />
So yes, it is possible for you to install OSX on your system.

<b>This is NOT illegal </b>as long as you own a license to Mac OSX. As in go buy it at the store.:<br />

again not asking for links, and if anybodys wondering I found a confirming site and it is as Chipp says, sse1 and sse2 are necessary but sse3 needs a few extra configurations. I should be done tomorrow, won't say anything more for the legality of this subject

I'd have had OSX on my system long ago if I had SSE2... <img src="/images/smilies/redface.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Embarrassment" class="inlineimg" />

ok, so i know you can do it if you get a mac os image that has the proper patches (hint: JaS) it will have the amd patches as well, yes you can dual boot with windows but you will need the acronis disk director suite, and i would check out the osx86project for more info

I tried to dual boot on my x2 3800 and it worked but just...not well. Its really buggy and things, if I were you I'd stray away from it, especially if you have an amd. I would save up for a mini mac, thats what I did and I love it <img src="/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Big Grin" class="inlineimg" />

my understanding was that it is necessary to hack the kernel, which is legally protected - making the process illegal
