Hello,

I am in the starting proses of making an Aplication for the Ipod Touch and the Iphone. I do not have a Mac computer at this moment in time. But what i want to know weather if I can get an Mac Registured Intel hard drive for a desktop could this be put into a simple windows running PC and work on Mac. If I was to take out the Windows hard drive would the new Mac one work and would it run OS X Snow Leepoard?. If this would work can anyone sugest a good place to get a cheep Mac Registured Intel hard drive or a hard drive which is blank which will run Mac (if that works).

If you need any more information please ask!

Thanks
Sam

Can't run OSX on a PC based machine. This violates Apple's EULA and no help will be provided here.

What, are you trying to get credit to purchase one or both of these?

The weather is fine here. Kind of hot though. How is it there?

There is no such thing as a "Mac Registured Intel" [sic] hard drive.

There is no difference between a Windows hard drive and a Mac hard drive except the operating system that is installed on it. No, it would not run and it would also be against the License Agreement as it can only be installed on an Apple machine.

Well, since there is no such thing as a "Mac Registured [sic] Intel hard drive", can't tell you where to get one.
A blank hard drive can be bought from anywhere that sells hard drives.

A Mac is a computer made by Apple which uses OS X as an operating system.
And no, if you want to use OS X, you will need to buy a Mac.

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.
