    If you tried to install OS X on a intel PC it would make the red phone in redmond ring.

    I bet you're one of those people who'd be willing to put diesel fuel in a gasser, because it's cheap...

    Apple does NOT offer a version of OS X that'll run on x86, they do offer a version of Darwin that will run on x86.

    Try this http://developer.apple.com/darwin/

    You can't make a mistake and put Diesel fuel into it because Sam's Club doesn't offer Diesel.
