Psystar's Rebel EFI is an interesting tool, but it is very limited when it comes to the selection of hardware that you can use. The company really needs to create a compatible hardware list and post that on its Web site -- and it also needs to create some usable documentation.

As it stands right now, you can use Rebel EFI to build a Mac clone, but unless you stick to relatively generic hardware, you will be disappointed. On the other hand, if you just want to poke around OS X to see what the fuss is all about, Rebel EFI could prove to be an effective way for PC users to become familiar with OS X before shelling out for an Apple Macintosh. In that case, though, I suggest that you test your hardware first using the free download version of the product.

Yea... that was EFI-X... what a pile of crap. They lied about using their own code, but it was just Chameleon on a 5$ stick. They told everyone that it was future proof and now they farked all their customers and said that it won't be compatible with 10.6. Told them they need to buy 1.1, and then 1.1 wasn't going to work...LOL and now they have to wait until next year to buy v2! lol... And the owner of that company was a total liar. The victims of EFI-X are all together at http://www.efixusers... They are trying to warn the world about that scam. http://efixsucks.wor...
