Hello people of Overclock.Net
I have seen many of these ''Hackintosh'' discussions on OCN and this is simply is not acceptable due to the Apple EULA.
Clarification of what Hackintosh is:

Threads pertaining to information regarding how to install OS X on an NON-Apple machine anywhere on the site, specifically in the Mac section, or threads asking for help with your "Hackintosh", whether it be installation help, hardware help, or configuration help, is strictly forbidden anywhere on this site.
The Apple EULA forbids Apple software to be used on any hardware other than Apple Labled hardware.
Permitted License Uses and Restrictions.
A. Single Use. This License allows you to install, use and run one (1) copy of the Apple Software on a single Apple-labeled computer at a time. You agree not to install, use
or run the Apple Software on any non-Apple-labeled computer, or to enable others to do so. This License does not allow the Apple Software to exist on more than one
computer at a time, and you may not make the Apple Software available over a network where it could be used by multiple computers at the same time.
(i) to download, install, use and run for personal, non-commercial use, one (1) copy of the Apple Software directly on each Apple-branded computer running OS X Lion or OS X Snow Leopard (“Mac Computer”) that you own or control;
(ii) If you are a commercial enterprise or educational institution, to download, install, use and run one (1) copy of the Apple Software for use either: (a) by a single individual on each of the Mac Computer(s) that you own or control, or (b) by multiple individuals on a single shared Mac Computer that you own or control. For example, a single employee may use the Apple Software on both the employee’s desktop Mac Computer and laptop Mac Computer, or multiple students may serially use the Apple Software on a single Mac Computer located at a resource center or library; and
(iii) to install, use and run up to two (2) additional copies or instances of the Apple Software within virtual operating system environments on each Mac Computer you own or control that is already running the Apple Software, for purposes of: (a) software development; (b) testing during software development; (c) using OS X Server; or (d) personal, non-commercial use.
As Overclock.Net supports Lawful discussions we cannot allow discussions of the Hackintosh sort or any other modifications that violate the EULA of another company.
If such threads are created they will be REMOVED.
Updated for Lion and Mountain Lion as they are available through Mac App Store (thank you sub50hz for the info)
