Can I use ESI products with "Hackintosh" Mac-on-PC systems?
Mac OS X has been developed by Apple to be compatible only with genuine Apple hardware. As the operating system has been prepared specifically to the hardware components of Macintosh computers from Apple, it has never been intended to be run on hardware that are consisting of components made by third parties.
Even though installations of Mac OS X on non-genuine Apple hardware may operate fine or at least seem to, there is simply no way to confirm the stability of that installation due to the high number of different PC hardware. As a result, we do not officially support any Mac OS X installation unless it is installed on genuine Macintosh hardware from Apple.
This information is important for all our products, yet even more specificially for PCI hardware.
