Install OS X

Install some version of OS X with cd drive or some other method but make sure you use disk utility to format the partition you just created and DO NOT install any boot-loaders or anything like that, when windows boots up it will ask you; boot xp or osx.

  note: after installing any drivers or kexts during the leopard boot dialog ALWAYS add the "-v -F" option(this is case sensitive), and always load kexts with KextHelper.
drivers may vary from machine to machine
but go compatible hardware to find if your machine is listed what drivers you may need and what methods do/don't work.
