No one else has any other links or items to help?

Thank you,

    Here are most of the links I have accumulated:
    Yes, some links are KVM but they use QEMU which I know is also possible 
with Xen to an extent. I found some good information that crosses over on the 
virtualization platforms.
    The roadblock I ran into is that OS X uses UEFI. I just installed the 
latest xen kernel and tools. I need to see if the UEFI support is there and it 
*should* work.
    In one of those I found links to creating a hackintosh bootable USB. I then 
made an image of it and tried to boot a Xen VM from it but it said the CD Rom 
couldn’t read it.
    If anyone else wants to do it as a “proof of concept” with a group effort, 
I’m all in.
    Thank you,

        Out of interest, did you find anything useful ? I know last time I 
looked I found very little, and it would be quite useful to me to be able to 
get one running.

        Actually, I know it very well - clearly better than you do. Please cut 
the insults and crap, learn how to quote and trim properly (you don't seem to 
be trying even after many prompts), but above all take the crap and politics 
somewhere else.
        > You install Linux on Mac? Haha why never use a Linux laptop :)
        Why not - a "Linux" laptop is just a laptop that's running 
Linux<period>. As you have so inelegantly pointed out, a Mac is a PC at heart 
(Apple even include the means to create a Windows driver disk for dual 
booting), so why should it be such a surprise. At one time I was running Linux 
(Yellow Dog) on a PowerPC Macbook Pro.
        Sometimes there is more to it than just a name.
        And for the record, I have also done a number of "spec up a comparable 
system" exercises over the years - and you know what, Apple generally don't 
come out badly ! Yes they are expensive, but mostly that's because they don't 
do low spec crap like most vendors do. If you actually compare like-like you'll 
find that systems from most other vendors are also expensive.
        But this is really off topic for both the thread and the list.
        Let me give you some advice, because you really seem to need it.
        If you are going to demand help from a mailing list, then you really 
should try not to annoy those you are asking for help. You have no *RIGHT* to 
time from anyone here - we are here because we've got benefits from Xen and are 
doing what we can to help others get that. But that is done in what spare time 
we have, and to be honest, patience wears thin with people who refuse to use 
good netiquette, and eventually start insulting you.
        So if you want help, then do yourself a favour and take this advice :
        1) When you reply, ensure that what you quote is quoted properly (it 
hasn't been in your last few messages). If your mail client is rubbish, get a 
different client - ANY half decent mail client will get this right.
        2) Don't leave the whole of the message in your reply. TRIM IT and 
quote only what's needed to set the context. Again, *ANY* half decent mail 
client will do this, if yours doesn't then get one that does.
        Put another way, YOU put in a few seconds of your time to make it easy 
for everyone on the list you are expecting to help you.
        If you ignore either or both of these then that shouts "you don't care 
enough about my time to spend the few seconds making it easy for us to read 
your emails". If you don't care about my time, then why should I care about 
helping you ?
