    Yep, Psystar's Rebel EFI Works: Make Your PC a Mac for $50
    by Danny Allen, Oct 23, 2009 11:50 AM

    "

    In case you missed it, Psystar's new downloadable software lets you install OS X on any PC with a Core 2 Duo, Quad, i7 or Xeon Nehalem processor. CrunchGear tried it on an HP TouchSmart, and even the touchscreen worked.

    Turns out the OS X install screen takes ages to come (they thought it had crashed), but with some patience they had themselves a hackintosh.


    Psystar says the $50 download allows for the permanent installation of multiple operating systems on a single system, and that it works with Windows 7. A trial version is available (with a 2 hour time limit), and comes with all the expected warnings of them not being responsible for you losing your data should thing go awry. "

    Awesome I might try this later. I've been thinking of using one of the various methods but this seems to be the easiest way I've seen (I don't want to mess with magic sticks and kexts and whatnot).

    I almost bought a pystar machine when they first came out.

    I would give it a shot if I could find it anywhere.

    Doesn't appear to be on Usenet or torrents.

    If I'm going to be using an illegal operating system, I'd rather just steal it outright.
