I love the Mac operating system but I’ll tell you what, it has always frustrated me that you can’t build your own Mac. I’ve been building computers for about 5 years now and when I switched to the Mac a year ago I pretty much left that behind me (luckily my family members still want me to build them computers).

But now since you can run Leopard on a PC, you can build your own Mac. Here are the steps.

  • Head over to Mininova and grab the modified Leopard ISO (I’m not linking directly to it but I’ll give you a hint, searching for “iATKOS v1.0i” would be pretty interesting)
  • The ISO is about 2.09GB and it shouldn’t be too hard to find.
  • Burn the ISO to a DVD
  • Boot from the freshly burned DVD and follow the on screen instructions.

The installation takes about in hour but once that is finished you will have a nice fresh copy of Leopard installed.

Currently only some Intel based processors work and AMD processors are not supported.

Remember that this may break the license agreement of Leopard and because of the DMCA it is of questionable legality.
