    Hi guys,

    I have a Dell inspiron PC just sitting in the corner of my room doing nothing and I fancy hacking it.

    I think it's got a 120gb hd and 512mb of ram.

    I basically want to make it run OSX.

    The computer is crashed :)rolleyes:), so it turns on runs really, really slow (takes 10 mins to load safari)

    I have nothing other than the install discs and the computer.

    Does anyone have and tips and how to do it? Is it easy? Is it worth it?

    Please search, you'll find tips in the merged hackintosh thread, hint, hint.

    You'll need to buy a retail copy of OS X ... and there is no guarantee the PC is compatible.

    You may also want to post actual specs. Hard drive and ram are pretty useless in terms of information you are telling us.
    Need to know CPU, motherboard/chip set... Since it is a dell model number.

    But just judging by your post, you may want to rethink this, does not sound like you have enough knowledge to keep it running (no offense).
