Why not ask Apple support? ;)

It is contrary to Apple's EULA to install Mac OS on non-Apple hardware. Installation on a virtual machine is allowed, but only if it is running on a Mac. Apple of course will not help.

mm... usually it's the other way round - want to install a windows OS on a Mac system; which can be done two ways. I have Macs with XP on one (Parallels) and win-7 on the other (Bootcamp).

I have seen how to install/run Mac OS on a Windows PC - but it's hassle to achieve and may not work very successfully overall... It is done as an OS in its own right - not via a VM of any sort. Also I think it prefers a 64bit capable system...?

If you trawl appropriately you may find the how to go about it "out there" - although it's been a long while since I read the info; so it may not be around anymore, or not pertinent to Mountain Lion.

Incidentally I think you may also need to license your installation too - if you want to run it/update it etc. properly?

And - what is VT - with regard your cpu?
