Default Snow leopard on a pc? Nawwww

First off, this is more of a showing thread, i have no plans to help anyone to do this themselves because it took alot of effort for me to get it to work on my own.

So, I've been really fascinated with the mac os ever since i went into digital film class this year, which all the computers are mac pros, So i did some research on if Snow leopard can be put onto a pc, since I'm definitely not paying for an overpriced mac.

I found out it can be accomplished, through OsX86 project.
Only problem i mainly had was getting the network to work, for if you dont have a pci network card, you have to do some editing of some files N' shi.t
So after 2 days of modding, and being ready to snap, i Present to you, Snow leopard on my dell Xps 420.



Dont know why the processor shows up as a xeon, but its a quad core.



Cant seem to get my printer to recognize the SD card, So looks like no actual shot of the computer running it, but i wouldn't waste my time posting this if i was lying.

As i said in at the beginning, No way am i going to help another person do it, i almost committed suicide trying to do this.
But, i will offer a few tips

A.) Use Atkos S3 v2 like i did, I couldn't find it on any of my private sites, so use *cough* tpb *cough*

B.) If you're having trouble just getting into the setup, Try some of these commands, with variation to whatever works for you.
when you get into the bootmenu, push F8, type: -x32 -v -f rd=diskXsY (Let X be your hard drive number, typically 0, let Y be your partition number you want to install os x on.) Also try: cpus=1.

C.) I used this utility to determine if i had compatible hardware to begin with, if you get a red mark, doesn't necessarily mean it wont work, but it means you will likely have to do extra. Actually cant remember the link, but if you want, i can send you the utility through AIM: H4FSaliva

Good luck, The more O.S's you try to boot manage, the harder it gets to get it working.
Edit: Leaving, may come back and give more tips if you still need some help.

I wish someone would explain to me why 99% of OS-X users all use the same fucking background.

Well no shit.
Doesn't explain the other 45 million people using the same background, so yeah, still waiting for someone to explain that to me.
