    Most definitely. Just partition your harddrive with a dedicated amount to Win 7 and a dedicated amount to SL. Google around and research on how to install a Hackintosh cuz, let me tell you from personal experience, it is NOT a walk in the park nor is it in any way as easy as installing Ubuntu.

    It is possible to find pre-made distros of SL which make it pretty easy to install OS X on a PC but there are some issues if you don't have compatible hardware. If you'd like you can post your specs and I can help you out.

    Most modified snow leopard disk images come in ISO format. If you're trying to burn an unmodified snow leopard... this may sound weird given the site this post is on but its only $30, you may as well go legit. For an OS that is an astoundingly good price.
