Hi, I have a Mac OSX Mountain Lion.iso file and I wanted to put it on my USB Drive(8 GB) and I wanted to boot from that .ISO file. I have tried using powerISO to do it but my USB Drive will not show up on the list. Can somebody please show me how I can do this.

No I don't want to create it on a Mac. I want to create it on a Windows laptop and boot it on a Windows laptop, similar to how you do it with Linux. Except I don't want to boot Linux from a USB Drive. Instead I want to boot Mac OSX Lion using the .iso I have with me

If I'm understanding this correctly, you want to run Mac OSX on a Windows oriented PC?

I'm not a Mac owner/user by any means, so more knowledgeable heads may prevail here...

The last I recalled, Apple used a security chip to match up the hardware with the OS to ensure no one was using a Mac OS on a Windows (or other) PC. This is different from Linux because all Mac operating systems are proprietary despite their Unix heritage, and as such aren't available in the same fashion as Unix/Linux.

Let me simplify this:

You cannot use a Mac OSX on a Windows PC.

Yes you can because I have seen people do it. I just need a program to do it. You don't know anything and I hope you never become an advisor

This is a grey area but in the Apple EULA ....

It explicitly states it is only permitted to be used on Apple branded hardware. Even down to a Apple branded USB stick.
