Is it allowed to...

Postby NexusPenguin » 22. Jan 2016, 07:30

Hi all,

I've read the rules and it is said that question about Os X as a guest on anything else than Mac Hardware aren't allowed.

But, is it allowed to ask a question about Mac OS X running as a guest on Apple hardware (a Mac Pro 5,1) if I decided to boot my Apple Mac hardware into Linux ?

As far as I understand it (and IANAL), it is absolutely allowed to have an OSX guest running on Apple hardware.
If you obfuscate any information requested, I will obfuscate my response. These are virtual UUIDs, not real ones.

But, you'll be asked to provide a VM log, as the log can tell us in lots of ways if it's Apple hardware or not, even if a different host OS is installed.
