This guide was extremely helpful, thank you.

However, has anyone tried to use apps such as iMessage? It is not letting me connect to the server to log in. In fact, during Mac OSX installation, I could not use my apple ID to log in. I am assuming that since this is not an actual Mac, it will not work correctly?

I was just hoping to use iMessage so I could text from my PC desktop. If anyone has gotten it to work, please let me know.

Thank You
