Can someone help me to make my own software EFi-X with Boot-132 bootloader ?

I wanna make a sofware version of the EFi-X because I need to have multiple PCs running Leopard at the same time and I can't buy an EFi-X chip for each PC where Leopard is running.

Thanks.

I'm trying to make the software version of the EFI-X chip. I don't think that is against the Apple Eula,because I don't want to make an installation of Leopard,but only of the EFI firmware.

Then just hire some 20 programmer years and program EFI firmware from specification....

FreeBSD boots from either BIOS or EFI, or even PXE.
Your question is about PC hardware modding, not operating systems.

Question is about violating licence of MacOS X, far from its FreeBSD components.

No,I'm not interested about any kind of hardware modding and I don't want to install Leopard on a PC,I want only to install the EFI bios on a cdrom or on a usb stick. As EFI-X is not violating Apple EULA,I will do the same,without to make hardware modding,but only some kind of software manipulation.

Leopard's licence tells PC you need is made by Apple. Thats all.
