License agreement states you can only install it on Mac hardware. Do you own an Apple thumb drive? – GolezTrol Dec 29 '10 at 22:24
License agreements and the law governing them are region-dependent. – Daniel Beck Dec 30 '10 at 13:07

I believe this is against the license agreement of the software, but regardless I don't know if your hardware would even be supported by Mac. The range of drivers is very slim, because there aren't many different components in the various models. So, I don't think installing to a pen drive would work, even if you managed to put the data on the drive.
