The patent application seems to be this one:

<http://appft1.uspto.gov/netacgi/nph-Parser?Sect1=PTO1&Sect2=HITOFF&d=PG01&p=1&u=%2Fnetahtml%2FPTO%2Fsrchnum.html&r=1&f=G&l=50&s1=%2220050246554%22.PGNR.&OS=DN/20050246554&RS=DN/20050246554>

Note that it covers some stuff that does in fact work, for example
claim 9 (although there is plenty of prior art for this one).

Unfortunately, the things that can work are in the wrong direction:
Apple can prevent you from running anything but Mac OS X on your Intel
Mac.  What they really want to do (at least according to press
reports) is to stop you from copying Mac OS X to your other Intel box.
Big difference.
