got OSX86 working on my AMD 64

I got OS X 10.4.7 installed natively to my AMD 3800+ pc, and it runs very smoothly. Software installs without a glitch, and the SATA drive that I installed it onto really improves performance compare to ATA. Using the Acronis Boot Menu program, I am now dual-booting XP and OS X!!!

You do know that it is illegal to do what you just did, right? Apple specifically mentions it in the EULA when you install OS X.

I will ask a moderdorator to PLEASE CLOSE THIS TOPIC. This is illegal to do as it is said in the lisenced you agreed to when you installed the software.

If you read up on Apples past they aren't afraid to sue. Wink

Trust me apple has cracked down on this before if they decide to take a even larger step then it would be a lot cheaper just to buy an Apple Computer.

Yes, but that is illegal, you are only allowed to install OS X on a Apple Computer. The ONLY way you should run OS X is on a Apple computer!

Apple works hard to make their OS, and they don't want it brought down to have to work on all the hardware configs. This is why Apple is known not to crash as often as windows. Well at least it is one of the reasons. Apple supports Apple thats final. Mac OS X is typically cheaper then windows because they can make it up in their hardware sales. Microsoft can't that is why their is almost a 300 dollar difference in the OS prices. Full Windows XP Pro is 400 dollars Full Mac OS X is 130 dollars.


So I disagree with you thinking it is gay that Apple doesn't support stupid companies like Dell or HP/Compaq.

In a way it really kind of pisses me off that people would say this is gay and that it shouldn't be illegal. I just have to tell you your fat or your so damn poor you can't afford a Apple computer so stop complaining about "Why can't I install Mac on my Bios PC?"

Actually yes, I am a minor, and I don't have a job, so I can't afford an apple computer. I also did not say anthing about apple not supporting everyone elses hardware. I think that is fine. But if someone wants to install the OS on their computer, then they should beable to do it. All apple has to do is state that they don't support anything other than apple and that you should proceed with caution.

Hmm, I don't recall saying that either. Although, why would they have to support dell, hp or compaq? Those are computer manufaturers. You know there is a such thing as building your own computer from parts like at NEWEEG.com check it out sometime Razz

@Rocky3479 Just beause something is illeagel and posted in these forums, it should be brought to a staff a member and allow them to act upon the [alledged] infrngemnt. To do *anything* is called "BackSeat Moderator", and could lean towards you being banned from the foruns as well as the perpertrator.

@Xenicone:

Please read up statement as I hate to have to retype myself.

I am going to close this topic to avoid any further probrlems.
