Mac OS X Getting Mac OS X up and running on a computer without an Apple label has always been a bit of a hassle. You needed customised Mac OS X disks, updates would ruin all your hard work, and there was lots of fiddling with EFI and the likes. Ever since the release of boot-132, this is no longer the case. Read on for how setting up a "Hack"intosh really is as easy as 1, 3, 2.

I would argue your wrong. I would argue that the device isn't a copy protection device since in fact it isn't actually needed to use the computer. The fact that a boot loader will load OS X is not circumvention, since if I was loading Windows or Linux, it would be perfectly fine. Not using something on your computer is NOT circumvention. Altering your motherboard so that the device works differently IS circumvention. There is no alteration to the workings of the motherboard. Hence it should be perfectly fine. Course, I wouldn't be surprised if Apple does something to make this not work.
