Arrow Plans for for my 10V(when i get it)(comments/Views) - 09-02-2009, 01:56 PM

  • upgrade RAM to 2GB
Tri Boot
  • install windows XP(60 GB)
  • install ubuntu (50 GB)
  • install mac OS X (50 GB)
Has anyone done a triple before and is there any problems with them? Ive never made a computer boot with more then one OS before so thought it would be a fun project.

Also is this a good order to do things in, if not what is and why ?

Is there any thing else i should know about ?

Im not an expert on things of this nature so any comment/help would be great. This is just going to be a personal project of mine for a bit of fun. I will however be using the system once finished for everything you would want to from a netbook.

I would install the ram first and get that out of the way.

Here is a triple boot guide from the OSX86 wiki. I dualbooted OSX and Win7 before my last install and had no problems at all.

There are some triple-boot threads. I would recommend getting a dual-boot of OSX and Windows running... and then install Ubuntu.

I think this would be the best way to tackle a tri-boot.
