Running EFi + Vanilla Kernel. Is It Genuine?

Rather simple question. I apologize in advanced if this has already been answered. I currently have a Toshiba A200 running with the GMA945 Express chipset (950 Graphics) And Used Both EFI v8 and Vanilla kernel, both working just great. The thing is, with many users saying I should check GeekBench if I have a "genuine" Mac, I'm A little confused. Before patching, GeekBench stated that I had "Hackintosh" as expected. After usage of both the kernel and EFI, its now stated my computer as, well, as it is An "A200". Not a MAC as I would have expected. Also, it still states its an ACPI unit. Wondering if the 10.5.1 upgrade or any subsequent update will work, as I've tried Kalyway's 10.5.1 Installer and extracted the 10.5.1.pkg and used that but in the end it wouldn't boot or rather wouldn't give me the option of a login screen. Supposedly, there's some issues with that DVD, am I wrong? I've done this at least 8 times, installing and reinstalling, wondering if I've done something wrong, or is it just that the package is corrupt? Here's My System specs as stated my System Profiler after Vanilla & EFI :
