Hello AtomicSuperman, welcome to Seven Forums!





Have you considered using VirtualBox to run a Mac? It may be less trouble if you could.

I have no experience with Mac and had to Google the SW in question to see what it is. Keep checking back as someone with some time with Mac stuff is sure to help you before long.

Apple doesn't permit their operating system to be installed on non-Apple hardware.

You can search the Web on "hackintosh". People have hacked the OS to install on generic PCs, but I don't know whether they've done it on PCs that don't use Intel CPUs. (Current Macs use Intel hardware.) I've also seen a USB dongle that makes the PC look like an EFI system to the MacOS installer, but it costs several hundred dollars, and it's only certified to work with a limited number of PCs.

If you really need to run Final Cut Pro, get a Mac. Steve Jobs demands it. Sorry that I can't be more encouraging.
