In order to build or convert a PC into a Hackintosh you have to have specific hardware and then modify the BIOS. Then you'll have to boot up a EFI such as: The Empire EFI, TonyMac (something), or boot132. Well the stuffs complicated and google's your friend. Well Hackintoshes are really cheap, as with just $1000 you could end up with a Hack Pro with power beating the Mac pro. I could help you for some stuff in case you want to build/convert one, as the last time I visited the OSX86 forums it showed lots of people wanting help while the forum seemed unresponsive.
    In was just going to virtualize. I think that's why the installation keeps failing, because I am not using a way to boot up efi. I just know that in the instructions I was using, they said to disable efi in settings.
