Question How to get a legit copy of OSX Snow Leopard running under Ubuntu 11.10


I have a legit copy of OSX Snow Leopard. I totally removed OSX and now I'm running Ubuntu 11.10 in my Macbook Pro.

However, I want to do iPhone development. For that I need to run XCode, which only runs in OSX. So I need to run OSX again.

I've got VMware player and the trial copy of VMware workstation. I tried booting the OSX CD in VMware workstation but it always tries to do a network boot, which fails. Then it says no operating system was found.

So how can I get this running? I don't want to do too much hacking or downloading modified versions of OSX. I just want to get my legit copy running again under Linux.

Try running it thru virtualbox which is not a trial version & is available thru synaptic package manager.

VMware player is not a trial version.
Anyways, I think that MacOS X needs an EFI BIOS, I am not sure if VMware or Virtualbox are capable of that. I am not even sure if running MacOS X in a VM violates Apple's license for the OS.
