Submission + - OS X on PC Hardware -- Without Hacks (macintouch.com)

Dekortage writes: "Macintouch has posted a fairly positive review of the $199 EFI-X USB Boot Module, a motherboard add-on which adds a full EFI boot environment to compatible PC systems. Among other things, this means that you can install Mac OS X 10.5 from an Apple installer disk without any "Hackintosh" software mods. Macintouch's review also explores the legal issues surrounding this (including a lengthy discussion of EULAs and the Pystar case), and concludes that EFI-X is not at risk because it is an "implementation of the public specification for the Extensible Firmware Interface... completely independent of Apple, Inc." EFI-X also supports Windows Vista x64, Linux, OpenSolaris, and HP-UX."
