My board doesn't have AHCI The board is OSX86 compatible it seems, but obviously it needs a different method to that one above - thanks though.

Yeah I know how to find OSX torrents per se but as you know there are a ton of them, I can suck them and see, and if nobody has a better idea that is what I will do. I just wondered if Chuckles or someone could say YES, *THAT ONE*

But you'll just end up bitching that the advice you got was wrong ? You know, someone will forget to mention a key press required during boot up or something

You don't really want to do the 10.6 install method and work up from there. From that site, try the unibeast option and go straight to mountain lion. The only issue is you will need a mac to do it (only for 5 mins to make the USB disk).

If you don't have access to one, what I'd do is the burn on of those crappy hacked ISO's that will install and old version with drivers people have knocked together (google kalyway torrent), then from that make the UNIbeast installer.

This looks like the best ISO file for 10.8

Why would you want to try a Mac OS? You would hate it id guess.

I've used OSX, not a big fan but, BUT, it has its good points and would be nice to use it as an alternative sometimes, plus getting OSX working on a generic PC is satisfying - I did it years ago - on my old P4 system IIRC.

Had a go doing this. The 10.8 disc listed above was no good because it needed a dual layer disc to burn it on and I haven't got one I downloaded another but it wouldn't even boot to the installer, it looks as if the latest versions require AHCI anyway, there is a way around it but you need to modify the installation disc.

SO, I decided to try an older version which doesn't require AHCI. Seeing as I would only be using it very casually and not as my main OS I don't mind if it is a previous version. I tried a 10.5.7 iDeneb distro, this installed successfully (I used my old SSD) but wouldn't boot from the HDD, the Apple logo comes up but nothing happens, not even the activity icon was displayed. I was able to make it boot by using the DVD though. Couldn't get it to set a resolution of 1680x1050 (native res) even using the "Graphics Mode" switch before booting. Also it doesn't recognise my Atheros 8152 ethernet and the kext I found for it which I installed using Kextbeast doesn't seem to have worked.

Now downloading a 10.6 distro to see if that works any better
