It is possible to use OS X on non-Apple hardware however it take a bit of work and violates the EULA for OS X so forget about Apple support/updates.

Is there still issues with running the VM on a AMD host system? I have tried a couple of times for the sake of learning. and each time has failed badly.

Im currently trying with VirtualBox, as it seems to support it, just you need OSx86.iso.

However, I have not yet got it to work, as I am too lazy to try to do it, but that is my weekend project.
