Windows 7: Is it possible to boot Windows 7 with Mac OS X?

Is it possible to boot Windows 7 with Mac OS X?

Everyone, sorry that a vast majority of my questions have to do with multi-booting!

Title explains it all. I've read that it's actually possible to boot Windows 7 with Mac OS X. My question was, "Is it really?"

Anyway, I have some Mac OS X iso's and it's (right now, anyway) impossible to open.

If I try to open it in WinRAR, it will tell me that the archive is either in unknown format or damaged. If I mount it with Daemon Tools and try to open in Windows, it tells me that the disk may be corrupt. I understand that seeing that it's a Mac disc that Windows can't read it, but I just don't understand why WinRAR won't open it. (A Mac would read it though!) Pictures are attached.

By the way, I know that it's unsupported now, but the only version of Mac OS X I have is Tiger.
P.S. Iím not using Boot Camp on a Mac, Iím still using a PC.

It is illegal to install Mac OS X on hardware that is not branded as coming from Apple. So do what you like but you won't find any help here with this.

It may be possible to do this, have you tried installing Mac OS X using VirtualBox or VMWare Player?

Oh, I never thought it'd be illegal. I've tried VirtualBox but it wouldn't boot up.
VirtualBox says "FATAL: No bootable medium!"
I haven't tried it in VMWare Player. If that doesn't work, I'll just try something else.

Does anyone else know how to install it in VMWare Player? I've tried, but I'm just lost.

You can't install OS X in any VM program. Unless you hack the VM program to allow you to do this.

In any event this is a Windows 7 forum and you are asking about Mac OS X and for the simple fact that installing OS X on any hardware other then an Apple computer is against the Apple/Mac/OS X License. Thus can not be discussed on this forum.

So Please take it someplace else.

Or buy a Mac.

Hmm, good point. I guess I'll find another forum and mark this as solved.
