Default XP/Linux/OSX tripple booting - 11-01-2009, 11:15 AM


I have had a read of lot's of posts on here with guides to installing windows and OSX but I think I am missing something, and hoped someone could either fill me in or point me in the right direction!

I am comfortable with linux/xp installing both, throwing partitions around and editing grub as a bootloader.

I have just finished installing linux on my 10v, so now I have partitions as follows:

1. 30GB XP partition
2. 30GB Blank Partition
3. Extended
20GB Linux
1GB Swap
60GB Data
4. Dell recovery partition

I can happily boot into XP or linux.

I was hoping that I would be able to install OSX on the blank partition (2) - This is where I have got lost. Without more info I was about to try the following:

1. Make a netbookloader USB stick and boot my machine.
2. Make a OSX USB install stick and try to use that to install to partition 2.

At this point I am lost - any help!!

Thanks all

(And yes - I can't spell triple... )
