Default St. Louis Mini 10v - 03-03-2010, 09:00 PM

Hi all,

I just bought a slightly used Mini 10v that was already "hacked" to triple boot OSX, Win7, and Ubuntu. As a WinXP and Mac user I'm really enjoying this Mini and expect it to travel with me often.

Already planning to put a skin on the cover (recommendations?) and looking at other power sources like car chargers, external batteries, and so on.

I want to figure out what boot manager is on this thing as soon a I can figure out the right forum for that question. It doesn't look like rEFIt or Chameleon screenshots I've seen; it looks just like Boot Camp but I didn't think that supported booting more than two OSs.

Oh well, time to look around here and see where I can jump in and start learning.

Greg

Hi Greg,

I'm also new to the 10v and from St. Louis (West County). I hackbooked mine to Snow Leopard using the Gizmodo guide and I intend to dual operate Windows 7 as soon as I can get my hands on an install disk.

Just thought I'd hop in and say hi.

Go Cardinals!!

I've been reading the forums here for a few weeks. Had a flawless install of SL 10.6.2, Windows 7 and Ubuntu Netbook Remix on my 10v thanks to the guides from virusdoc and anguish.

Glad to hear from others around STL. I've been building and rebuilding Windows PCs for a long time, recently switched to Macs as my main machines, but this Hackintosh stuff is a really neat challenge! Looks like I'm going to learn some Linux after all.

LOL.

No, it was his fault. Although he should have fessed up to his injuries sooner. Didn't he not tell Tony too? I can't remember. I remember that in his last year I hated that he blew so many saves.

Go cards! I'm removed from Central Illinois, but I still bleed the redbird red. Damn, I wish I could go to the "newer" Busch Stadium.

Naturlich nicht. Wir hassen niemand hier.

Oh yeah, I also speak a little Deutsch. (And I have tickets to opening day)
