    Apple's license only permits installation of OS X on a Mac.

    There are individuals who have experimented and hacked installations onto a PC, but for OS X to even partially work on the PC, the PC must have certain components. But the OS X will most likely not run 100% as Apple does not support that type of installation. Even on a Mac, one must have the correct hardware . . . each version of OS X will not run on all Macs, just those Macs supported by that version.
