"Can" in an engineering sense -- yes, it's possible.

"Can" in a legal sense -- probably not.  You get a 'right to use' MacOS
X with the hardware you buy.  Even if you run MacOS X in a VM on your
original Mac hardware (which you've re-installed with some other OS),
you'ld be on rather dodgy ground, as the only way to make that work is
to use an illegally hacked version of MacOS X.
