Yes, an unstable proc will crash any OS.

Even Linux.

Windows uses the BSOD, OSX doesn't apply as you can't overclock a mac and Linux has Kernel Panic, if my memory is correct.

Popular spots for mine to bluescreen when unstable: Halfway through loading, when it flashes from loading screen to the Vista logo, and when it flashes between login and desktop.

Exactly. You'd have the same instability regardless of what operating system you were running.

If you could overclock a Mac, or more realistically, if you had a Hackintosh(That is, OSX running on a PC's hardware), then even it can crash with a too-high overclock. I don't know exactly what it is called, tho, but OSX would also do so if it were on an unstable processor.

Oh, OSX on a PC.
