    Lightbulb Apple Darwin OS Install

    hey guys,

    I really want to install the Darwin OS, from Apple, on a partition on my HDD. So, I was hoping that someone would be kind enough to provide me with a step-by-step guide. Of how to build, compile and install Darwin from source. The source code can be found at

    I've never done anything like this before, I've only installed from .iso images. Which is why I would really apprciate someone 'walking' me through the process. Everyone, has to start somewhere, right?

    Thanks in advance,

    I would be surprised if anyone is able to give you a quick step by step guide as it seems like this would be a pretty involved task. Have you verified it will run on your hardware?

    Ye sure, I have checked that Darwin will work on my hardware, and the x86 source code should work fine.

    I'm not expecting the step-by-step guide to be a quick guide, just a comprehensive guide of how to compile and install an OS from source. I just really want to learn.
