Windows 7: Windows Xp with Mac OS Lion X

Windows Xp with Mac OS Lion X

Hi all, I know this is a bit off topic as its a Windows 7 forum but I am trying to install Mac OS on the same drive as my WinXP Hard Drive.

I have created/split a 250GB and left 32GB for the Mac/Linux to install

My WinXP is installed so is there a way to add the operating system on the same drive as Windows, if so how?
Have downloaded EasyBCD...then Im lost!!

It is illegal to install Mac OS in a non-mac machine, I guess you know it.

Anyways ... this snip may give you an idea ... this is not the best place to discuss these topics

Not illegal, just a violation of the Apple licence agreement.

Somebody told me it is illegal .... when I built a hackintosh up a few weeks ago I never read apple's eula .... took his works as true

EDIT : As Z3r010 permits ... I am adding a few lines . Have you already installed Mac ? If not, me very careful while formatting the target partition as Journaled ; at first make a backup of your windows installation in a secured place . And the better is, do it in another disk , dont add the boot entry in boot manager .

And if Mac is already installed, the best way to go is to use bootcamp.

Windows 7 Ultimate x64, & Mac OS X 10.9.2
 
 

virtual box will allow you to instal mac osx on any computer. ok its not the same as a dual boot, but it works the same, its just a little resource hungry so you may want to limit the number of cores and ram it can gobble.

On my mac i use parallels desktop 7 to run windows 7, and its faultless, admittedly its not free, but if theres a pc version available id highly recommend it! it still amazes me i can play games like call of duty 4 on my mac via a virtual program.
