Is it possible to load Leopard server onto a PC and use that as a server?
Legally, no. This goes against the Apple EULA.
Technically, yes, provided that the PC has a compatible set of hardware.
(I may be wrong, but I think that's how it goes. Others, feel free to correct me as necessary.)
No one seems to know the answer or tried it. If anyone knows how to or the possiblities I would love to know
It is very possible. You'll need to purchase the appropriate hardware that is natively compatible with OS X drivers and then use an EFI bootloader, like EFI-x. It's a small USB drive that plugs directly into the header on your motherboard, and spoofs the OS X installation DVD into thinking it's installing on a genuine Mac.
You are violating the EULA by doing this.
If interested, google EFI-x. Their official website has forums with tons of information from people doing this on a daily basis.
You can run OSX server on Mac Mini if you can't afford a mac pro. Not made for pc.
It will work.
As others have said, technically, its possible. The reason there is few answers is, the heacache in making it is not worth it to most people.
Let me ask you this, what are you trying to accomplish? There might be better alternatives out there.
yea its possible, tried it and I wouldn't trust its stability... I guess if you are just trying to get familiar with os x server than its fine, but I would rather put it on any mac using virtual machine.
