    Question HP h8-1214 Compatibility

    Hey everyone, first I am new to the forums and I have a few questions. I am looking into making a hackintosh. While browsing the computers at Best Buy I found a really nice computer. I am a huge fan of OS X but hate the price of Macs. I got home and researched the computer a little bit and thought, why can't I install OS X on a PC? So I have researched it and found tonymac's tutorial on how to install OS X on a PC (tonymacx86 Blog: iBoot + MultiBeast: Install Mac OS X on any Intel-based PC) using multibeast and iBoot. The computer I am looking at is the HP h8-1214 (HP Pavilion HPE h8-1214 Desktop PC Product Specifications HP Pavilion HPE h8-1214 Desktop PC - HP Customer Care (United States - English)). So here's the questions.

    Would I be able to install OS X on this computer. I know there is a patch for the AMD processor and I am pretty sure the Radeon graphics card will work. Do I need to worry about any of the hardware? Or is it all compatible with the software?

    How does a hackintosh differ from a retail Mac? Can I use the software update? And I still don't understand why I can't just put in the OS X installation disc and hold C and install it?

    I also want to have Windows on it also. Tonymac gave a complicated tutorial on how to dual boot, but why can't I just use BootCamp??

    Any help or tips are greatly appreciated!!

    Thanks!

    - CPU AMD six-core 3.3ghz
    - Graphic Card ATI Radeon HD 7450
    - Board Chipset (not sure where to find this information)
