    I just purchased a version of leopard on a 2 cd set, According to the instructions this "simulator" will allow your intel pc based computer to run Leopard without a problem. The first cd is titled "mac system" the second is titled "applications". Have any of you heard of or used such software? I would like to use it on my netbook hp 2133. Thanks

    Those are restore discs and will only work on the model of Mac they were made for. The will not work for what you want. Period.

    yup a hakintosh, pump your breaks r.j.s. dukebound, why do you say its not that simple? I am familiar with restore disks and I've used them before, these are not restore disks. I'm waiting for my hp to arrive so I cant say that it will work. If I can I will post a picture to shed more light on the matter.

    Then what are they? If they are gray, they are restore discs.

    I'm relaxed just fine, and I'm trying to help. I'm curious as to what discs they are, since they aren't restore discs.

    Since we can't identify what they actually are, all you can do is try them.

    its not that simple because if it were, people would just be loading leopard on pc's with ease

    for example, osx doesnt support every piece of hardware, your hp uses a bios and not efi, etc

    it wont work trust me

    Looks like a burned copy of restore discs from one of your bazaar vendors.

    That's obviously not a legit Apple disk. They are probably bootleg done by a well-equipped bootlegger. The danger of these disks is, besides from being illegal, they often contain malware.

    Gentlemen I agree with what your saying, This post is mostly informational. I put in one of the disks and it has instructions on how to install the program on a windows based intel pc, both with pictures and even a nice video!!! crazy

    No trying to be rude or mean and we have probably all been on the receiving end at some time but as the old saying goes...

    Why not report it to Apple? Send them the photos, maybe you can get a reward for exposing a software bootlegger. It's so obviously illegal that Apple would love to go after them.

    Those are some nice looking bootlegged disks!

    Go ahead and install it. Malware? Install ClamAV and see if it pulls anything.

    Those disks are illegal. Buy an actual copy of Leopard before we help you.

    It's just a version of the OSX86 project. It's nothing new really. I have been running leopard on my shuttle box connected to my flat screen for a couple years. The hardest part is finding drivers for the various hardware. Its really easy if you buy the right components from newegg and build it using the list of supported hardware.
