Psystar Corporation will begin selling the software it uses to run OS X Snow Leopard on generic Intel hardware. Available for download directly from Psystar.com, the Rebel EFI suite allows users to easily install any OS on their computer.
Available today, Rebel EFI allows machines with Intel Core 2 Duo, Core 2 Quad, i7 or Xeon Nehalem CPUs to install any modern operating system, including Mac's newest release of OS X. Users would simply download the new software from Psystar.com, burn it onto a CD and follow the onscreen instructions to easily install the OS.
A demo version of the software will also be available for download free of charge so users can test-drive the software before purchasing. The demo version would still allow users to install Mac OS X onto their computers, but with limited hardware functionality as compared with the full version.
Also available today from Microsoft is their new Windows 7 operating system. We are proud to announce that Windows 7 is supported on all Psystar computers and by the Rebel EFI. Through the use of the Darwin Universal Boot Loader, available in the full version of the Rebel EFI, computers are capable of installing and running multiple operating systems, including the newly released Windows 7 as well as XP, Vista, various Linux flavors and OS X Snow Leopard.
The Rebel EFI software supports a wide range of hardware profiles. As the software evolves, it will automatically update to take advantage of additional drivers and increased functionality.
In conjunction with this software release, Psystar will begin the Psystar Labs approval program. Users who are having difficulties getting a specific device to work correctly on their machines would send in their component to have it certified. The most common hardware set-ups are compatible, and through PsyLabs we will continue to work toward the Rebel EFI supporting an ever-broader range of hardware profiles.
