    Does everything work? From what I have heard, networking has some issues and so do many video adapters.

    Yeah, I am having trouble getting my wireless to work, but I have a compatible card somewhere around here, just gotta find it.

    OMG! That is SO cool! I just recently built myself a PC (had to put Windows XP on it...) but now I am going to try to make another partition and run OS X "Tiger" and.."Amaze my friends" haha. Please if you could PM me/ post a guide as to how you achieved OS X to install/run on your Toshiba! Please help me and congrats again! Thanks!

    1) Show us more pics so we know that is really your Toshiba and not a doctored photo.

    2) Where did you "obtain" the copy of OSX for Intel? I assume it is a developer copy, as it is only 10.4.1. The shipping Intel version 10.4.4.

    I'd like to see someone try the real version of OSX 10.4.4 on a PC and see what happens. We know the developer version had no DRM in them to tie them to the Apple hardware, so this is not too surprising.

    I don't think the real version will run because it doesn't have BIOS support like the developer version did. The Intel macs use EFI instead, which is the same thing that keeps Windows XP from being installed on them.

    The OS is based off of Unix. There has only been one successful virus to ever hit Unix-based OS'.

    It was created in 1988.
    I'd use Windows... but I like the Mac OS more.

    Yes, I do believe this would be an illegal thread to be discussing..but I think ther reason they have not closed the thread is that they are not discussing how to do it, just that it was done.

    I think what we would want to talk about here is the plain result, not the how to get/install/hack/crack or whatever.

    What about screenshots from the System Profiler?
    Have you tried to run any benchmarc program? what is the score? My iBook gets over 90 using this program... can you run it?
