Squallstrife i posted the method i used to update here in this thread:
http://www.atomicmpc.com.au/forums.asp?s=2&c=32&t=343

Works pefectly, updated from 10.5 Retail DVD to 10.5.3 and then used Apple software update for .4.

You need to download the dmg from apple, as the install script at startup section breaks the update due to pointing at Do NoT Steal.kext (the actual names longer but meh), this is the file that checks the machines legitmacy and decrypts the parts of the operating system that are encrypted. For hackintosh's we need to redirect this too dsmos.kext and remove AppleCPUPowermanagment.kext. :)

Firmware/BIOS copyrights?
Apples use EFI, which is an intel standard designed to replace BIOS.

Apple won't lose.



Correct. As much as I like rooting for the little guy, PsyStar knew what they were getting in to.

But "brand dilution" is a crock.

Thanks PC FREAK, I got it going in the end.

My problem was twofold.

Firstly, my ICH8R SATA ports were set to RAID instead of AHCI. 10.5.2 will run in this state, but all your disks look like external disks. 10.5.3 just needs some of the kexts edited to recognise the controller's ports when in RAID mode. This let the boot process proceed right up to before the GUI appears. (The easier solution would have been to set them to AHCI, but that borks my Windows installation.)

Finally, my old(er) version of NVinject wasn't 10.5.3 compatible. Updating it got me back up and running again.

Then I just downloaded the 50MB update delta from Apple and upgraded to 10.5.4.

Sorted. :)

Yeah OS X is surprisingly hardware compatible, the only issue I had with my board was installing NIC drivers quite a lot of motherboards will 95% work out of the box

The real issue with OS X is video card drivers or lack there of given currently the best card you'd be looking at running is a 9800GTX+

PyStar use PC EFI to get around the EFI issue present with installing Mac OS X.

Netkas was very annoyed when he found this out, as one can imagine as PyStar didnt mention PC EFI e.t.c
