MAC OS X Installation on Intel PC

OS Version

Latest version of OS X is called Lion. Previous version is called Snow Leopard.

Top Installation Methods

Currently there are two easy methods two install,

  • IBoot and MultiBeast method.
  • Kakewalk method.

I had tried iBoot and MultiBeast Method, Here is my experience,

In iBoot and MultBeast method, You can’t install Lion without having Snow leopard installed already.

With the help of following two links i am able to install Snow Leopard.

  1. You inspired me to try OS X again on this DH55TC motherboard.
    I was successful in running Snow Leopard with everything working except restart and power management. Have you been able to get the machine to restart properly?
    I failed miserably with Lion. Do you have any pointers as to how you were successful in accomplishing this?

  2. Hi, i have the same hardware (mother and mic) and I’m trying to install Mavericks OSX. Can you help me with detailed guide for post installation? Today I’m only able to boot with boot usb (UniBeast), without graphics acceleration ( Sapphire Radeon HD 4870 1GB GDDR5) and sound.
