Snow Leopard Dual Booted with Win7

This may be a stupidquestion but can you put snow leopard on a dual boot with win7. Im pretty good with computers but i have no idea

This may be a stupid question but can you dual boot Win7 with Mac Snow Leopard with Win7 as primary.:confused:
Ive got a Windows 7 and Snow Leopard Disc but Do not know if it would work. Also if it is possible how much space will i need for Snow Leopard.

If you have a mac it is no problem to boot either OS as a primary or secondary OS (Windows under bootcamp).

If you have a "PC", you are almost certainly going to have issues with OSX running on it. OSX doesnt like to play nice with non-Apple hardware.

It can be done but I wouldnt recommend it.

You might be able to run Mac on a virtual pc. You could try at VMware forums VMware Communities: Online Community for Virtualization and vSphere Experts You'll need a good host to get decent performance I've got a 64 bit with 8 gigs of ram and assign 4 to VM. Sometimes the host goes past 6 gigs in use. They run great.
