Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Boot Camp lets u install Windows XP without moving ur Mac data, though u will need to bring ur own copy to the table, as Apple Computer does not sell or support Microsoft Windows. Boot Camp will burn a CD of all the required drivers for Windows so u don’t have to scrounge around the Internet looking for them. System Manager, optional alt. At startup, hold down the option key (alt) to choose between Mac OS X and Windows.
and Run XP natively, once u’ve completed Boot Camp, simply hold down the option key at startup to choose between Mac OS X and Windows. After starting up, ur Mac runs Windows completely natively. Simply restart to come back to Mac.

For best information and how to install, please link to :

    Joshcoolblue, could you please be a little more specific ? Are you asking how to install the Mac OS in a machine that is currently running windows ? Are you asking how to create a dual boot configuration with these 2 OSes or are you asking for recommendations to decide whether to dual boot or use virtualization ? What is your doubt ? Thanks,

    No you can not install the Mac OS on a Windows computer. The OS requires a specific chip on the motherboard which only the Apple computers have.

    I know of people that have been able to do it performing some hacks that can surely be found on the web, but it is not recommended and is also probably illegal.
