I'm afraid that the usage you've described violates the Mac OS X Software License Agreement. From page 1, paragraph 2A, first sentence: "This License allows you to install and use one copy of the Apple Software on a single Apple-labeled computer at a time." (emphasis mine) The entire SLA can be found here, for reference.

Just think about it for a second: You steal software, attempt to install it in a non-supported emulation environment, on non-supported hardware, and then you actually act surprised when things don't quite work the same as they would on a genuine Macintosh. What exactly is going through your mind, here? I actually want to know... because I am completely baffled as to how someone can just automatically expect such illicit activities to work out exactly in their favor.

Oh... and I strongly disagree with your opening premise: You're not trying to love Mac with what you're doing... you're trying to use MacOS X without spending any money on an actual Mac. If you love someone, you don't steal from them.
