It isn't directly illegal to do so. You see, OS X interfaces with the TPM on the proprietary motherboard Apples use when it installs, and it won't install if there isn't one. It's illegal to modify the operating system to circumvent this.

EDIT:
BTW, is this under a virtual machine? Or is it native? And how is the performance?

I never liked os x. I never saw any point to it. The only two upsides are security and multimedia, which I don't need anyway. My security is fine, and I don't do any video editing or anything of the sort. You can't run windows programs without running windows in parallel with os x.

I do think it looks cool though...
