    Question Help! Thinking about installing OSX..

    After reading up on this stuff a bit, I feel that I would like to install OSX on my current computer.. Though, I'm overwhelmed by the information and I really don't know where to start >_>... First I suppose I'll describe my system and specs..

    MSI P6N Platinum
    E6420 @ 3.00GHZ - Stock is 2.13GHZ, I overclocked it...
    2GB DDR2-800 RAM
    EVGA 8800GTS 640
    200GB SATA HDD - I currently have two partitions one for Vista and one for XP, I barely use Vista because well.. It sucks >:|...
    DVD Drive - Samsung SH-S203B

    Now, I'm wondering if OSX is compatible with these components, I built this computer about a year and a half ago so they're fairly new..

    Anyways, what should I do now!? What files/components do I need, programs, etc.. What should I do =\!?

    Thanks in advance for all your help =D!!

    This is a good place to start

    Also see here for a modded bios ( I used this site for a modded bios for my MSI motherboard)

    MSI P6N SLI nVidia 650i

    * Install Method: Kalyway 10.5.2 Intel/AMD DVD
    * BIOS Version: v2.2; Revision: 06/18/2007
    * Audio: On-board nForce Audio ALC888 Codec works like a charm OTB
    * LAN: On-board LAN cannot receive data, not working. Tried with up-to-date "forcedeth".
    * SATA & IDE: Everything works perfectly. Installed to IDE just to make sure. Couldn't install from SATA DVD drive but maybe that was because I used a DVD+RW
    * Optical Drive: SATA works fine
    * External Firewire drives work fine.
    * Low-speed USB mice and wacom tablets work fine.
    * High-speed USB devices (ex: external drives) need patch (see notes)
    * Do shutdown, reboot and sleep work? Yes, have not tested sleep. Update: sleep doesn't work.
    * I use the nforce kernel, haven't tried the others.

    PC-EFI works. Vanilla Kernel does not.

    * Make sure the vanilla kernel option is UNchecked during the install.
    * High-speed USB devices do not work. You need to install the "usb_fix_1.3.mpkg.zip" from here
    * No patching required. You _have_to use BIOS version 2.2 though. 2.1 will force you to use cpus=1, 2.5 (the latest) would hang the kernel at the memory prompt.
    * For those who want to update to 10.5.3, the "JaS 10.5.3 combo update" worked like a charm, the "kalyway 10.5.3 comboupdate" crashed and messed-up the OS.


    This is what that site says about my motherboard.. Btw how would I go about changing my bios version? I have no floppy...

    Alright I'm having this weird problem.. When my computer is booting and it starts loading the disc, it says "press any button to boot off disc" or something along those lines.. Right after I press a button some starts happening but then at the end all of a sudden my computer just restarts.. I've tried -x -v etc... I haven't even gotten to the install screen yet... This has happened with two different distros now..

    OOo found a video of my exact same problem, different distro..
