Default Triple Boot OSX/Linux/WinXP - 01-14-2009, 08:11 AM

Hi everyone,
My mini will be showing up in the next week or so, and I was wondering if anyone out there has triple booted their mini and if so, what order did they do the install? Does OSX need to be installed first, etc.

You could likely follow the same procedure I did for OSX/Win7, or go MBR based booting like the other howto. Linux can support GUID based disks, and GPT partition tables though, so I would think thats what you would want to do, rather than MBR (will definitely keep your OSX upgrades more in check).

I thought about putting Ubuntu on mine as well as Win7, but I realized I don't even use Windows except to want Netflix, what in the world would I want another OS eating up my disk space for. :mrgreen:
