    No. You'd need a patched DVD with patched drivers etc. since Apple doesn't use AMD CPUs.

    Because clearly the fact that Apple doesn't use AMD CPUs is the reason you can't just put a retail OS X DVD in your PC and install. Even if your computer doesn't even have an AMD CPU this must be true because it is logical. It's a shame Apple couldn't figure out how to get around this because they must have really wanted support for their OS on computers that they don't sell themselves since they don't do much marketing for those anyway.
