Yes and no. In its stock configuration it could have but at 300mhz it would have been painfully slow. OS X technically doesnt support 3rd party CPU upgrades so in that config, no it wont run OS X but you can hack it on using 3rd party tools. However, 400mhz still isnt enough. It's going to HURT. The iMac discs would do it but if you already have OS X on your iMac you would be in violation of your license agreement.
