    Is it possible to install— *gasp!*— OS X.5 on a modern i7 System?

    I know that OS's less than X.6 are not supported on this website, but I was wondering if anyone has had any luck installing OS X.5 on a modern i7 4770k system. The various information sources I'm finding are very out of date.. it's a shame, OS X.5 is an important gateway.
