This is a list of installation guides that will help you to get OSx86 up and running.
If you are new to OSx86, please use one of the guides in the Recommended section.

Please do not copy the content from one site to another site, please use original content on your site.

Please do not put your link anywhere; place it in the correct section.

Some of these guides don't tell you how to partition, please see the bottom of the page for details on partitioning or see Partitions.

Contents

Getting Started

If you want to install OSX on your Intel or AMD computer, your computer processor needs to support at least SSE2. Most current (2011) CPUs support SSE2 and SSE3, so you may want to skip the next paragraph. It is recommended that your computer supports SSE3 for application compatibility, speed and performance. Make sure to check which version of OSx86 you need for your processor. You can check for SSE2 support from Windows with a program called CPU-Z. If you're already on a mac use CPU-X. If you are using Linux, enter the following in a terminal:

cat /proc/cpuinfo
