Hi, I would like to find out if you can install Mac OS X nativly on a pc. I found on youtube that people have been doing that, and if you can please can you explane it or create a tips and tricks section on cnettv.com I watch that everyday.

You can't do it Legally.

The Mac OS requires Apple specific hardware and if you install it on a Windows machine it's hacked.

Sorry but this is forbidden for many reasons. First and foremost is the OS's owner doesn't license such use.
