    Default Quick question about installing the newest Mac OS on a Windows based PC

    If someone could respond to this question with some helpful answers I would greatly appreciate it.

    I have a Lenovo Thinkpad T61 Windows based laptop, which I recently purchased. It came installed with Windows Vista Home Edition. I have been thinking about removing Vista and trying to install the newest Macintosh Operating System (OS).

    1) What would happen if I removed Vista and tried to install the newest version of the Mac OS? Would it even install? I've read on the internet that the Mac OS is only setup to be installed on Apple computers not non-apple computers.

    2) If I leave Vista on the computer, and try to install the newest open box Mac OS, would it install correctly or would I encounter erros?

    I know that the Mac OS can be hacked to install, but I was just wondering what would happened if I purchased the latest Mac OS at my local Apple store and tried installing it on my windows based computer, what exactly would happen.

    If anyone would respond and let me know what would happen in these scenarios, or what problems I would encounter, please let me know. I would like to run Windows Vista or Win XP and the lastest Mac OS side by side.

    I cant wait until the day if ever, that Apple may decide to release their software for people likemyself with Windows based PC's that want to run Macintosh.

    Thank you,

    Once you get back into Vista(step 10), forget about copying the chain0 stuff. Download EasyBCD to set up dual boot with your MacOSx from there.
