Computer Products, Laptops, Electronics, HDTVs, Digital Cameras, Cellphones and More! How to Install Mac OS X on a PC (Without Using a Mac) Great progress has been made in hacking PCs to run OS X, and it is now possible to install Mac OS X without a Mac. Thanks to some great tools put together by some brilliant hackers, it is also much easier and does not involve nearly as much time and effort as was once required. Step 1: Getting The Hardware Ready I recently purchased the following set of hardware for the purposes of building a Hackintosh (often PCs running Mac OS X are referred to as such): The motherboard has an 8-pin power connector on it, and although it is possible to connect a single 4-pin connector to it, you may encounter odd issues running with just a single 4-pin connector. I did not purchase a hard drive or video card, as I used some I already had from another PC, but you will need those items as well. I also purchased v10.6.3 of OS X Snow Leopard retail DVD for a mere $29 (was about $35 with shipping & handling). I did my best to put together a fairly modern system for a very reasonable price. 5.14 – Click Apply.

Install Mac OS X Snow Leopard on a PC using VMware Many computer shoppers choose to buy a Mac not only to use OS X, but Windows as well. That is one strong advantage that Macs have in the Mac vs PC war. Apple computers are capable of running Windows, either through Bootcamp or virtual machines. So, why aren’t Windows PC’s capable of running OS X? *In order for this to work, your computer must have a processor that supports virtualization. But, don’t expect to not get errors if you are using an older Pentium 4 machine. Because we will be installing OS X on top of Windows through a virtual machine, the first step is to get some virtual machine software.

Understanding RC LiPo Batteries It would seem by the number of e-mails I get on the topic of RC LiPo Batteries, it's time to build a page to help answer the most common questions. Charging Some Of My LiPo Packs I've been into LiPo electric powered RC flight for the better part of 9 years now, and have learned so much about this amazing powering method in that time frame. Made some fairly costly mistakes as well! I have continued (and will continue) to expand this article when justified as new information and personal experiences are gained. This is a pretty big topic, and a long write-up; lot's to cover in other words... My page here is not an in depth course in battery physics; if you want that kind of deep information, check out Battery University's web site (one of the best educational battery sites out there). My little RC LiPo battery page here goes over the most common questions I seem to be getting asked. Those links take you to the specific pages where I cover these topics in depth.
