Hello I am a PC User. Following is the configuration of my Computer: Motherboard: Intel DG41RQ Processor: Intel Core 2 Duo E7500 @2.93Ghz RAM: 2GB I want to install the Mac OS Lion on my PC. I have tried alot to do the same through different tutorials available over the Web, but in vain. So, if someone could provide a detailed step-by-step installation guide, i'd be grateful. Cheers!

There are good instructions here (though they are for the installation of Snow Leopard, not Lion): http://www.makeuseof.com/tag/how-to-install-mac-os-x-on-a-pc-without-using-a-mac/ It involves making changes to the BIOS before you start and also creating a proper boot disk. There may be issues with your hardware (for example, I note that 8 pin power connectors are advisable and that 4 pin ones may cause problems). There are also links to various forums. Do make sure to search for the particular problem you are having BEFORE asking a question. Forums like this are nowhere NEAR as polite as MyLot and will flame you mercilessly if you ask questions which have already been answered!
