I have recently installed OSX Snow Leopard on VMware Workstation. Although I have legally purchased a copy of Snow Leopard, I needed to use a downloaded set of files including a darwin file to actually install it in VMware on my custom built PC. Is this legal? Would Apple try to come after me for having used a downloaded copy of some of the files, despite my having actually bought the product?
One reason I ask is because I am trying to run Rails in my virtualized OSX, and it looks like getting XCode in the app store now requires me to buy Lion. I am willing to buy a copy of Lion in the app store of my virtual OSX Snow Leopard, but am unsure of whether Apple will see this, realize my copy uses downloaded files, and do something about it. What do you suggest?
