I'd highly recommend FlyAKite, it works well instead of gathering up a million different skins. The only drawback is it uses a lot of resources for what it does.

I've tried multiple times to put osx on my pc i wish i could, i want to use the method without the dvd since i don't have a dvd burner, the one where it puts it directly onto an extra hdd, but I get halted at a spot where its just to confusing the guide is very vague on what to do...

Actually, I've tried it. Wasn't so bad, exept that there wasn't sound and internet. Although, the main difference I could compensate is that the right buttons on each window are on the left.
