Can you? Yes. You can run one Windows natively, and other OSes as virtual machines. Is it against the rules to discuss the Mac OSX part on here? Yes.

You don't owe me or anyone an apology, and I didn't mean to scare you off. It's against Apple's licensing to install OSX on a non-Apple computer, and at least a computer that Steve Jobs has hugged and smiled upon. If these forums allowed those discussions, Apple would try to shut them down.

Plus the fact is, I don't know if you could run MacOSX on non-Apple hardware without some serious illegal activity or perhaps using VMWare. I don't believe that Win 7's Virtualization allows for other OS either.

Actually, I think VMWare would work within OSX, but again, you have to use a literal Mac to run OSX. I know one person who has run other flavors of Windows on his Mac using VMWare Fusion, but I believe that was within OSX as it's core OS is a Linux based system.

I don't want to make it the illegal way,but if it doesn't work it's ok.

Yep, as described in the End User License Agreement of OSX. Apple wouldn't be in business if they didn't have their huge marked up on hardware. You can get it to run on a PC, and some siple Googling will prove that, along with instructions, but it does involve modifying the OS...which is also against the EULA.
