This is similar to "Hackintosh" questions and we consider these to be off topic. – Daniel Beck Jan 20 '12 at 20:20
How about now... – Peter Arandorenko Jan 20 '12 at 20:29
No Apple hardware = TOS violation. It's that easy. That's also why VMware restricts it like that (see answer by skub). They don't care, but Apple does. – Daniel Beck Jan 20 '12 at 20:30
Not quite... Still have the non-standard hardware on there. – skub Jan 20 '12 at 20:31

Only ESXi 5 supports OS X as a host operating system and only on Apple branded servers. Beyond that, it's against the TOS to run OS X on any non-Apple branded hardware.

See requirements here.

What about all the people that do not have Apple branded servers? – Peter Arandorenko Jan 20 '12 at 20:31
Those people will have to restate their questions or look for answers elsewhere... – skub Jan 20 '12 at 20:54
