    Default dual boot xp and osx on eee 1005ha?

    Hello everybody. Im new here. My sister and my parents of recently bought iMacs for themselves and I like the smoothness of the OS. I still can't say it's more useful then windows but I would like to use it.

    I have an Asus EEE 1005ha PC and I have heard from multiple people that you can install OS X on it. I am not familiar with the different ways to install os x so I need a little help

    Well anyway I would like to Dual Boot windows XP and OS X on my eee pc (which has 160 gigs btw). The problem is I don't know exactly what I need or how to go about doing it. I have been searching for a guide on how to do it but I can't find a good one.

    Has anybody done this?

    Is there a way I can keep my xp the way it is now and just install os x without re-installing xp?

    Default

    You need to start by making a FAT 32 partition of at least 8GB. I personally used a program like partition magic. Then, you must obtain a copy of OSX. (I used Kalyway and leo4all) If you are lucky enough to get past the boot up dos screen (ie: failure to load boot device) Then you simply need to find your partition of <8GB and re-partition it with the mac install to something like mac capable partition. (Use the Disk Utility upon entering isntall.)

    From there, you are pretty much home free given all of your installation selections work with your hardware. I personally installed my OSX on a thumb drive and simply plug it in before I turn on the pc if I choose to use OSX instead of Win 7. (Change boot priority to USB 1st)

    Does that make sense? It should start you in the right direction. I am by no means an expert. I just figured it out over the weekend
