    You can't install Mac OS on a non-Apple computer. It's a violation of the licensing agreement.

    That's besides the point. It is against the license agreement to install Mac OS X on a non apple computer.

    Hi Hako

    Sorry, we cannot assist with activities that contravene licensing restrictions.

    Pirate software is pretty usual here, perhaps that's what he was saying. :D
