Okay sorry about repost. But my friend currently has a HP pavilion dv9000 series notebook. With vista home premium.

He is wondering he there is a away you can turn the vista into a OS X. He prefers a dual boot (Clone). Please give me respond asap. Thank you

You can't change Vista into Mac OS X, do you mean make Vista look like Mac OS X?

Yay, Completely. I want it to look just like Mac OS X or as close as possible. And if it could have the same functionality.

You can use this to make it look like OS X: http://www.vistaosx.net/

You can't make it work exactly the same, of course. For that you'd need to buy a mac.

Well my buddy wants more of the functionalities of a OS X. Rather than the look. I mean we wants the dock, and also the think where u can move ur cursor to the corner and all ur programs move to the side. (i saw that one app for this) but like as similar functions of a mac as possible

Tt's called "Switcher" and you can customize the way the shortcuts with the mouse or keys work. I have it, is really useful.

It is actully freeware http://insentient.net/

If you want themes you can download some from: http://zeusosx.deviantart.com/.....D-79282673

For the cursors and Icons you should download whatever pack suits you better.. me, i spent days after them!.. and still AM after them!

As for the bar you can download Object Dock or Rocket dock, whatever suits you better.

Icons are highly customizable, you can download them or do your own ones (just save them as .png.. I do my own sometimes =D.. but of couse I am a graphic design student, so you may want to download them! XD)

The app to make buttons be on left, is called "leftsider": http://www.descargarlo.com/718.....Sider.html

I recommend you to use Tune up Styler, or Styler or Windows Blinds to install themes and icons and all without much of a drama

aaaaaand.... I dont know what else to come up with.. I think that's pretty much all there is to it, there are some apps that do what the "mac taskbar" does but I'm not sure how it works, I installed one once and it didnt seemed to work properly so I uninstalled it, it wasnt actually that useful..

EDITED TO EXTEND INFORMATION
