    Quad Cores and OSX Snow Leopard
    okay im guessing that someone might know the answer to my question
    here it is

    does Snow Leopard recognize any Intel Quad Core CPUs?
    ive been pondering the idea of converting a Windows machine to Snow Leopard
    and i was wondering if it would work
    there are so many issues that i really dont care if i get support for all of the hardware
    i just want an option
    and i like the way that Snow Leopard looks
    so if its possible let me know
    or if this is some taboo no-no speak up also
    thanks

    From what you have implied, you would be installing OS X on non Apple-branded hardware which violates the OS X EULA. You won't be getting any help with this question.

    It is not a place for helping people break the law, install illegal software, download illegal music, movies, software, etc. or break any software licenses you agree to when you install software among many other things.


    edit: I really like how those that want to do illegal or just amoral things believe the fault lies with those unwilling to help them do it.
    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
    In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.
