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.

At an educated guess it's probably an ACPI issue that means OS X is not correctly detecting the number of cores, or is not correctly identifying them as HT cores.

Hardware wise the SMP stuff itself is pretty much universal across every SMP capable x86 since the original Pentium.
