    iboot legacy + retail install will more than likely work best for you. iboot legacy may be one of the only tools that will work because it is specifically targeted for unsupported cpus.

    Yes that method has worked flawlessly here for me most times on various different systems.

    If you get an error, try adding busratio=17

    Havent tried installing Lion yet....but Snow Leopard works fine.

    Same here. With some small tweaks you can even download 10.8 from the mac app store after you have finished with that method (I know; I've done it!). I've got a 100GB partition of my hard drive that I use for testing operating systems that at the moment is running Windows 8 but as the hard drive is a GUID partition table instead of MFT partition table I can go back to mac at any time. (And yes; windows WILL boot quite happily to a GUID partition table drive! How do you think Bootcamp works?)
