Rebel EFI : Install Snow Leopard on PC for dummies

October 23rd, 2009 admin Leave a comment Go to comments

It should not fix bad relationship between Apple and Psystar. For sale through their website, a software called Rebel EFI promises simply to help the average user to install Mac OS X on a PC including the latest and greatest Snow Leopard, provided that your PC has the compatible components. Rebel EFI arises as a small ISO image of just a few MB, which uses included Darwin Universal Boot Loader (DUBLE).


To enjoy it, you will need to burn this image onto a CD, then boot your PC from it. Rebel EFI will detect hard drives, verify that your hardware is compatible with Mac OS, then download the drivers needed to install the system, simulating the presence of EFI. The software is sold for $49.95, but you can download a trial version from the Psystar site, limited in time and the level of hardware supported.

    RebelEFI is a complete rip off of the free developments made by the OSx86 community such as Chameleon, boot-132, FakeSMC, etc… You can get the content of their so called DUBL – Darwin Universal Boot Loader here : http://www.mediafire.com/download.php?um0n0ijlu2n

    How can i burn this to a boot cd?

  • skr3dii

    You just need to burn this ISO : http://cdn.psystar.com/rebelefi_latest.iso It contains 3 files; osxlinuz, initrd & rebelefi.pkg. The link I provided in my previous comment is just the content of the encrypted initrd ramdisk. Psystar is trying to make $$$ on behalve of the OSx86 community, use boot-132 instead. Psystar = evil.

    Ok, I've tried hundred's of guides out of there, some are complex, few are useless, others are incomplete, I was so damn frustrated until I found this one that was easy to install via USB Install Snow Leopard on PC

    This is how it NEEDS to be. You see RIP OFF i see “No need to ask for support in insanelymac/hackint0sh/whatever forum for why my video/usb/audio/network/wtf is a kext/ darwin what?” This does it all for you automatically, which the “Scene” has NOT done. So it is a new application layer on TOP of all those drivers out there.

  • osx86tester

    By any chance do you have this file rebelefi_0.8.4.zip ? I tried googling and nothin. Seems like that tachyon.psystar.com is down. I used pacifist and extracted the rebelEFI.app All i really care about is pulling the drivers for my Nvidia Geforce 8600 GTS 256 on a retail 10.6.2. and the stupid gui looks nice
