Does anyone know if Mac OS X Tiger is able to be put onto a windows PC, by splitting the hard-drive.
I was wondering because of Apple's new Boot Camp Beta which gives users the option to have Windows XP and Mac OS X on the same computer.
I currently have a Windows, but I would Love to have an apple too.
Thank you for your help

Yep. Apple makes a lot more on selling a $1500 computer than it does selling a $120 OS. And OSes aren't physical - meaning pirating is almost too easy.

Technically, you could do it, if you don't mind being sued or arrested for EULA infringement, provided of course you actually bought Tiger for x86, which I don't think actually comes in the boxes, just ships with the new Intel Macs. There are many people out there who have installed Tiger on Dell's, HP's etc, albeit with minor driver issues (sound etc.).

I love how the second and third posts perfectly contradict each other. :D

They are both right though. It can be done, but you're not supposed to do it.

No, there is not contradiction. The only release versions of MacOS X 10.4/86 are bundled with Intel Macs. The versions installed on non-Apple PCs are pre-release versions. The linked sites don't really address the OP's question.
