I tried to install OSX on my little acer netbook and well it didn't work. It would get to the apple load screen and reboot. I was wondering if anyone else was able to get it to work or if anyone has even tried to do it.

Apple does not like having their OSes running on anything but their hardware. You would have to modify the install DVD in order to do so, but I do not think I can disclose the method due to this forum rule:

No subject matter will be allowed whose purpose is to defeat existing copyright or security measures.


Hacking the DVD would violate Apple's EULA.

Thanks for the reply MadDawg.

I just heard people doing it and was wondering if it is possible.
