How To Install OS X Mavericks on any Intel Based PC [Guide]
This article will take you through the simple procedure of installing OS X Mavericks on your Intel-based PC. For this purpose, a tool called as UniBeast is used that creates a bootable installer from your downloaded version of OS X. For starting this process fresh, you might need to access a functional PC already running Mac OS X Snow Leopard 10.6.8 or later. This will be helpful in downloading the latest version of OS X.
You need to register at tonymacx86.com for getting UniBeast and MultiBeast tools from the download section. You would also require 8GB or larger USB drive.
