    You still need apple hardware (xserve3.1) for OSX, amusingly apple ended xserves life in January 2011.

    its not just a eula thing either (sneaky) VMware implemented some hardware checks for apple hardware. Once apple change their stance VMware can change their implementation.

    Stupidly easy to bypass tho, just have a look at some of the OSX86 forums ;P

    Tho you'd be stupid to run an unofficial unlocker on production, supported hardware.
