correct me if im wrong but if the EULA states that i cant intall osx on non apple branded hardware it would technically be ok if i installed with the drive in a macbook, than did all the patching over firewire mode and than put it in a pc. technically i installed it on apple branded hardware.

please feel free to correct me

Hmmm, no lawyer here, but it does sound like an interesting (if not ridiculously complex) idea. The number one flaw I see in this though, if you already have a Mac, what are the chances you are putting together a hackintosh as well.

I think it means you can't install it on a hard drive that is not inside(physically installed and hence internal ) a Mac

Installing the OS on a real Apple system would also probably result in a loooaaaddd of driver issues when it came to integrating it with your non-apple hardware.

#1 - Apple doesn't care what you do. Insanelymac.com's continued existence is evidence of that.

#2 - If you absolutely scrutinize every single curve of every single letter of every single syllable in every single sentence of the EULA, you can probably "loophole" anything. Sometimes it's not about "OH MY GOD THEY DIDN'T DOT THEIR "i" THIS MEANS I CAN STEAL ALL OF THEIR SOFTWARE!!!!1!". There are intentions to the EULA that are clear, regardless of how you nitpick the language.
