The eula reads someplace Im to lazy to read all several thousand lines again to find it, forbids the use of installation of the os onto any Hardware that's not produced by apple.
i will pay more attention next time, it looked legit. sorry if i crossed any lines.

Hi everybody!

Sorry I respond so late, but thx for your help!

DarkNovaGamer, somehow I can not PM you... My acces is denied to PM?

I used iAtkos disc so far and installed it on my seagate portable hard drive. I can boot into it but it's stuck at a gray screen where you can move the mouse but after half an hour still not doing anything... How can I fix that? I had to format this HD with GUID partition table.

Thx!
Martin

You cannot PM people unless you get more posts. I do not know how many posts that are required but I suggest posting around (not spamming of course).

HI!

I took several toturials on installing it. Anyway, I got a DVD wich is able to boot into the installation of MAC OS X.
Few questions:

They all say that you have to create a partition which is ACTIVE. My hard disk is partitioned with MBR (as normal) and in the installation they say that it should be GUID. The only way to do that is format completely and that is what i dont want!
1. Can you boot Mac OS X from an MBR partition?
2. Isn't Windows going to crash when you mark the other partition as active (using Acronis disk director Suite)? That is what I read all over the internet, and that it also what I do not want!

Thx for your help everybody!

You will have to reinstall windows.... unless you buy a second HDD and format that as GUID for OsX.
If you intend on running OsX on a windows machine you will need a program called Chameleon it is a bootloader much similar to that of a Linux boot loader.
