Possibly. The chipset on the motherboard is what matters.

You may be able to get this to work, but you're going to have to do a lot of research. This is not an undertaking for the faint hearted. As a starting point, Google "Hackintosh".

This is a breach of the OS X EULA, so you also have to consider whether that EULA is held to be a legally binding document in your country; it is in some, but not others.

First of all, this is not legal under the OS X SLA. You need to definitely have this in consideration! I strongly advise that you do not install OS X on a PC, because this breaches the agreement.

However, if you do wish to *test* it for a limited time, and not run it within the physical hardware, download VirtualBox and make sure that the "Use EFI..." option is checked. As this processor model you have mentioned is primarily a 64-bit processor, you will need at least Leopard, or Snow Leopard.

Glad to help you. If the answer given was helpful to you, please give it a thumbs up. If you have more questions, please feel free to post back.

VirtualBox, running on a non-Mac, won't run OS X. It's more than just the EFI option. On the other hand, you can install OS X on VMWare. Virtual machines will run 32- or 64-bit software.

VirtualBox, running on a non-Mac will run OS X. There are some issues with screen resolution but it does run...

You are correct; it does now run on the latest versions of VirtualBox. But it works better on VMWare Player (which is also free).
