Default Re: Official Unofficial OSX on your non-Apple hardware thread

I recently had a huge argument with some friend or a friend and ruined dinner because he was Pro Mac and said it's impossible to installed Mac OS on anything else with or without bootloaders etc. What a tool. Should have shown him this thread. Claimed to be a software engineer too. Ah well.

Psystar releases Rebel EFI installer, further enrages Apple

When not flying the Hackintosh banner, filing lawsuits, or generally positioning themselves as the gadfly on the ass of Apple, the kids at Psystar have been hard at work developing the software meant to free us all from the iron grip of Cupertino-approved hardware. And now, a mere two weeks since the company announced that it will be licensing its Darwin Universal Boot Loader to third parties, we submit for your approval a little something called Rebel EFI. Available to you -- the consumer -- right this very moment, the app will function as a universal installer for any modern OS -- provided your machine sports an Intel Core 2 Duo, Core 2 Quad, i7 or Xeon Nehalem processor. And of course, "any modern OS" includes Snow Leopard. What are you waiting for? Download the trial version for free (limited functionality, runtime of two hours) or download the full deal for the introductory price of $50 (full retail is $90).
What the heck no AMD CPU support. Where is the shotgun.

See engadget for more info and links.

CPU is not really the problem, the chipset is. Especially the ATI chipset, which is not used in macs so lack of drivers or as apple folks call them kexts.

Nvidia chipset is not an issue considering that it is officially used by apple in certain macbook pros.

Gizmodo has confirmed that 10.6.2 doesn't kill Atom support.
