I think there are ways to install it, however to do so would be a breach of Apple's EULA for Mac OS X.

I haven't done it, my first question would be why do you want to install it in the first place? If it's just for the sake of having the Mac OS on a PC or because it's what you're used to or just because you want to - fair enough, a quick google should sort you out on some steps to doing it.

If it's for any specific reason, then you'll need to tell us what it is and why you want to install it before anyone could say whether it'd be worth it or not!

Actually, if you read the EULA, you'll see that it forbids you from installing the operating system on any piece of hardware that is not Apple-labelled. I don't agree with their EULA (being a freedom-loving (as in,free-speech) kind of guy) but, nevertheless, it is a licence that is legally enforceable.

Sorry, it's been a long day. Six hours of training for something that holds no relevance to my job role has turned my brain in to mush

Thanks for picking up on that. Post is corrected.

Sure. Buy a Mac and be done with it. Your fault for not reading the license agreement before you purchased a useless copy of Mac OS.
