I've been using my SL hackintosh for nearly 2 years. Went to buy ML and had to upgrade 1st. The upgrade failed and now my hackintosh will not boot. I used SuperDuper! to do a full backup to a new USB IOmega ext drive, but it's NOT bootable they say to set it bootable using a mac... I don't have a mac. I upgraded my bios to FF then FH to see if that would make the SL upgrade boot, no luck. I want to buy ML. I know ML is on fileshare sites, but I'd like to pay for it. Can I use the fileshare site version of ML, get it running, then buy ML from Apple? Can I sign up for a 'mac in the cloud' to buy ML? Would it allow me to buy ML thru a 'cloud' mac? I'm running a Win7 64 right now, I CAN'T buy ML using it. Some on CraigList are selling ML on a bootable USB, but that still doesn't get me to a legal purchase of ML. I'm am learning App development and don't want Apple to know I'm on a Hackintosh, so if I do go the fileshare/CL USB route, will Apple know I never bought ML?
