    there is other languages that do osx86 like insanelymac . main trick is to get dsdt.aml for your motherboard and have it patched for usb, hpet, lpc, wak, and rtc.
    then u can use a special cd to boot .. then switch to retail dvd 10.6.x
    after all installed. boot with cd and boot from HD (with cd) then install chameleon2 RCx
    then fakesmc.kext and the dsdt.
    to install .kext best is to use a special tool... kext utility (go figure)

    Without bios modding its hard to install normal osx to pc. Because not all normal pc's have efi bios.

    search for RETAIL GUIDE for your mobo.. or chipset e.g ich7, ich8, ich9 or ich10 and some nvidias.

    the trick for EFI is to use chameleon2 rc5 and a dsdt.aml for your mainboard . maldon (at insanelymac) does dsdt auto-patcher (ing) as a begining point for users to get install capabilities

    boot132 or kakewalk method works too with usb

    the way it works is.. chameleon2 loads the dsdt and special bootloader than emulates the EFI along with FakeSMC.kext
    some people had issues running fakesmc from the folder that chameleon2 installer makes and uses during boot /Extra/Extensions aka /E/E

    so most people install with boot132 method then reboot with it and press esc to load from hd instead of cd u type 80 then it goes to hdd0 or 81 to hdd1. yada yada (useless info if using a GUI in the bootloader.. it shows u drives to boot from)
    .. then they install the fakesmc.kext with kext utility to /System/Library/Extensions/ aka /S/L/E

    dmg2iso ?

    I will provide you with the steps you need:

    1. Go to school and learn English.:D
    2. Start learning how to use Google.:worthy:
    3. Use the information you found thanks to Google:wavetowel2:

    And don't use translators.
    If you keep using translators you will stay stupid for the rest of your life. I can even write English without thinking in my own language, even my English is very basic.
    Just believe me, it will be worth the hassle

    Mac OS installation on a PC is impossible to emulate -- you'll have hardware problems. I'd buy a Mac if I were you.
