Working tripple boot (10.6.5 Win7 Ubuntu 10.10) - 11-19-2010, 09:30 PM
Firstly a huge thank you to jbeamer for the following guide,
Working triple boot (OSX, Win7, Ubuntu) - through Chameleon
A file you will need to upgrade to 10.6.5 is this one
First of all I suggest you print out the above guide and then pencil in a few changes to it.
Follow the guide until you have osx installed then update to 10.6.5
Then when it restarts and gets to the Chameleon screen stop the countdown by pressing any key.Then type recovery=y you will see it appear bottom left.Press enter to boot into osx.
When osx loads install the netbook installer above and reboot to make sure it loads.
Then load windows as in the guide.
Then load Ubuntu but make sure the bootloader is in the / partition.
When you reboot boot off the osx usb and use that chameleon to boot Ubuntu.
In Ubuntu open the terminal and
sudo apt-get install gptsync
It will ask you if you want to repair the mbr so type y then enter.
Then type exit
Then follow the guide to fix the window install finish by typing exit not quit.
Then follow the guide to fix osx finish by typing exit not quit.
Now boot off the osx usb chameleon and choose osx as although the osx partition is active chameleon no longer works.
When you are in osx run the netbook installer file above but uncheck everything except chameleon.
Now reboot and you should be able to boot all three.
Again, I cannot thank jbeamer enough, I wish I had found his guide a week ago.
I hope this helps someone.
