Basically, I love garage band. We use it in my Songwriting class at school and I just love it. I know it can't be run on a pc, so I was wondering if I could get a mac os to work on my pc so I have xp and the mac os, so I can run garage band when I need to. So I'm coming to the pit for help.
Feed your mind.

You can't use a similar program for Windows?

Trying to run Mac OSX on a PC is BAD IDEA. You're better off buying a Mac and installing Windows on it if you want the best of both worlds.

mac refers to the apple hardware whereas pc refers to a computer that is using windows while it technically means personal computer so macs would be a pc also. yes if you buy the mac OS it can be installed. google "dual booting mac osx and xp with xp installed first" will help you greatly.

It's not worth it just buy a mac or get acoustica mixcraft its as close as you'll get to garageband with a pc.

Sun's VirtualBox, VMWare, PearPC, etc. I don't recommend using OS X in a virtual desktop as it runs very slow and in some cases will only install and won't boot. I would recommend using this as a way to get familiar with the installation process so you don't screw up your partitions when installing it on a dedicated partition on your hard drive.

You have to trick the BIOS into thinking that it has mac hardware installed.

you could run it virtually...(no) or just install it "normally" on your hard drive. But doing so requires a cracked version of MAC OS. It's also against Apple's EULA (Who cares)
I don't know why Mac users get so defensive when you call them idiots. I mean, Apple is a company that has built its entire user base around the fact that its users can't do simple things like turn their computers on.

No... You just repartition your hard drive to include an HFS+ partition and boot the installation disc. Then you chainload Darwin using the bootloader of your choice; GRUB, BCD, etc.

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.

Once again if the only reason you want a Mac os is for garageband just get http://www.acoustica.com/mixcraft/ it's close enough and easier than dual booting.

You can, but you better pray that you're lucky because modded OSX such as Kalyway, iATKOS, osx86, etc, all have very limited hardware compatibility and support. Chances are that something is not going to work. Not to mention that most of these modded OSX's are "trials" with limited features and don't come with Garageband/iLife.

Garageband is an entry level program. You're better off just getting a real sound production software instead of spending hours and hours trying to get one of these mods to work.

...modes and scales are still useless.

False.

There are clones, similar applications, and, not only that, you can run OS X on a Windows machine, and you can run Windows on a Mac.
