Problems Installing OS X Tiger on a PC

My Primary OS is Windows XP PRO SP2 and for the past week I’ve been trying to find a way of installing OS X Tiger on my PC very quick and simple so far I’ve found various solutions, but each time I run PearPC I find a problem that once I correct brings another problem with it which can be very frustrating and I sometimes find my self going around in circles wondering why it doesn’t work, I will do some more investigation into installing OS X Tiger on Windows later this month, if all fails it looks like the only solution for me to test OS X Tiger out is to buy a Mac that of which I don’t want to do yet.

I’ve just found this program for testing OS X Tiger out but it dosent work for me even though it does look very much like it should! 🙁

The error i’m getting in the console is:

[IO/CUDA] keyb reg1
[IO/IDE] SPTI: DeviceIoControl() returned error:
[IO/IDE] command: ad 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 08:
[IO/IDE] The request could not be performed because of an I/O device error.

My best bet is to do some research into these error’s, this is my first time I’ve actually ever tried PearPC or even looked a Mac OS so it’s been an experience so far and I hope to learn from it and eventually test OS X Tiger out if not maybe I can try OS X Panther that apparently easier to install.
