I believe that the reason why the OS updates claim to have failed at the very end is due to one of the update steps. The way I figure it, the updater is trying to write some updates to OpenFirmware or PRAM, but neither of those things exist on a PC-based Hackintosh, so they return failures. The rest of the update consists of file and setting updates, and those are generally successful, which is why the update ultimately succeeds.
