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.

MSI Wind

I've witnessed an MSI Wind running OS X. 10.5.7, which the owner updated by "just installing the stock combo update" with no issues other than drivers being clobbered. This was using the MSIWindOSX.iso (10.5.4) distro and other than drivers for the NIC, video (proper resolution), PS/2 hardware and sound, everything else is stock. It uses standard IBM style partitions (not GUID) and the stock Darwin bootloader to dual boot Win XP home (as came with the Wind) and OS X.
