  1. Hi, everyone so I am currently dual-booting Windows 10 and Linux Mint. I would like to add Mojave and triple boot (without formatting/losing all data from windows and linux). My Current Specs: CPU: Intel Core i7-2600 (not k) Sandy Bridge GPU: Aorus Radeon RX570 4GB Motherboard: Intel SWQ6710H HDD: 4TB Western Digital Blue WD40EZRZ Ram: 20GB DDR3 Total (2x 8GB + 2x 2GB) 1. Is it possible to install Mojave on my HDD without wiping Windows 10 or Linux Mint? 2. What guide is most ideal for my situation? If you need any additional information or details, I am more than happy to provide that. I tried multiple guides months ago and could not get the installation to work.

    kernel panic gateway triple boot

    i have been trying with many different distros to install osx onto my gateway ne56r41u. tried running in vmware to restore images to usb, even used a friends macbook air to no avail. the only disks i can get to boot i have burned being snow leopard 10.6.1 and 10.6.6 (freezes on chameleon). attached is kernel panic from 10.6.1. even used [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] to try to boot disks/ vanilla osx lion (10.7.2) and usb installs with no luck. going to keep googling but havnt had much luck other than that page faults are usually command input issues. have tried -v -f arch=i386 and cpus=2 in many combinations also i have a linux distro and windows 8 (why i think i have issues with vmware even with vt bypasser) installed. wanting to triple boot
  4. Hi Everyone, I decided to create this thread with the objective to create a full install guide for this awesome laptop I've been using for 4 years now and that's been put aside since I got my first iPad 1 year ago. Last time I checked InsanelyMac, it was considered almost impossible to create a hackintosh out of the XPS 1640, but my recent readings tend to prove me the opposite. I am sure I will have tons of questions that I'm sure I'll find an answer for here - which is why I opened a thread for this. Without further ado, my config (extract from Everest): Dell Studio XPS 1640 (2011 model) Intel Core2Duo P8600 2,4 GHz RAM: 4 Go Video: ATI Mobility Radeon 4670 HD: 500Go 7200rpm Full HD (1920x1080) 16" screen Ethernet: Broadcom Netlink GigaEth WiFi: Intel 5300 AGN Bluetooth Audio: Intel 8280 Multicard reader: Ricoh (MMS, SD) Webcam WinTV Nova (TV-Tuner) --> OK if this one doesn't work Finished backing up my data. Downloaded Mavericks from the app store on a VM under Windows Have my Win 8.1 USB Downloaded Ubuntu 13.10 First, I'll try and use Clover bootloader, checking if the BIOS supports UEFI... I'll start with: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/293574-beginners-guide-to-uefi-tripledual-boot-os-x-windows-and-linux-kali-on-an-single-true-gpt-ssd/?hl=%20triple%20%20boot%20%20kali ... to be continued...
  5. Hello All, I have a dell e6420 laptop which i have setup for triple boot. i just realized that i followed an old guide and thus it might be why I'm having freezes on minimize windows. specifically browser windows. this is what i did: install osx el capitan created 2 partitions fat installed windows installed ubuntu installed gptsync on ubuntu to keep all partitions sync'ed. went back to windows and made OSX partition active so that clover will boot. now everything works fine, but i have a very strange issue. when i hit minimize, the window freezes half way down and then it goes to the dock. sometimes it just hangs and i have to reboot. this issue is only on OSX. windows and linux don't exhibit this issue. i thought my issue was related to installing gptsync under linux, so i have removed it after reading other triple boot guides but the issue remains. it seems keeping the partitions in sync is no longer needed. Specs: Dell E6420 8GB RAM 525 GB Crucial SSD intel i7 2.8Ghz 1600x900 Display is there a log that i can attach to try and see where this issue is coming from ? thanks here is a picture:

    refit menu issue

    hi, first time poster, very new macbook owner. just successfully set up a brand new macbook 9,1 as a triple boot: OSX, Win7, Ubuntu 13.04, with a common data sharing drive. all the installations work well, very happy about that. one issue i have is that on the refit menu there are options to boot to: 1. OSX 2. OSX recovery 3. Windows 7 4. Linux 5. Windows 7 both Win7 options work to boot to windows so it is not a big issue but it would be nice to fix it up so that the only options were: 1. OSX 2. Win7 3. Linux I would hate to mess things up now that I have gotten so far, so I was hoping that someone here would have some advice. There is a link to this forum from the refit resources page so I figure this is the place to start my inquiry. here is the output of a partition inspector scan: *** Report for internal hard disk *** Current GPT partition table: # Start LBA End LBA Type 1 40 409639 EFI System (FAT) 2 409640 195722135 Mac OS X HFS+ 3 195722136 196991671 Mac OS X Boot 4 196993024 685271039 Basic Data 5 685271040 880583535 Basic Data 6 880583536 1464886983 Basic Data Current MBR partition table: # A Start LBA End LBA Type 1 1 196993023 ee EFI Protective 2 * 196993024 685271039 07 NTFS/HPFS 3 685271040 880583535 83 Linux 4 880583536 1464886983 07 NTFS/HPFS MBR contents: Boot Code: Unknown, but bootable Partition at LBA 40: Boot Code: None (Non-system disk message) File System: FAT32 Listed in GPT as partition 1, type EFI System (FAT) Partition at LBA 409640: Boot Code: None File System: HFS Extended (HFS+) Listed in GPT as partition 2, type Mac OS X HFS+ Partition at LBA 195722136: Boot Code: None File System: HFS Extended (HFS+) Listed in GPT as partition 3, type Mac OS X Boot Partition at LBA 196993024: Boot Code: Windows BOOTMGR (Vista) File System: NTFS Listed in GPT as partition 4, type Basic Data Listed in MBR as partition 2, type 07 NTFS/HPFS, active Partition at LBA 685271040: Boot Code: GRUB File System: ext4 Listed in GPT as partition 5, type Basic Data Listed in MBR as partition 3, type 83 Linux Partition at LBA 880583536: Boot Code: Windows BOOTMGR (Vista) File System: NTFS Listed in GPT as partition 6, type Basic Data Listed in MBR as partition 4, type 07 NTFS/HPFS
  7. Hey guys! I'm planning on also doing a triple boot hackintosh with a Skylake system. I want to install the OSs on a 512 M.2 NVMe SSD. Any suggestions as to the order of install? I know people have said that order doesn't matter but what order do you guys think would be the easiest? Right now I'm thinking the order would be Windows 10, Ubuntu, El Capitan. Additionally what partition table should I use? Also, I think I should make the 3 partitions for the OSs before installing with an additional partition for swap/grub or something of the sort to manage the booting up (4 total partitions). Thoughts?
  8. ok i've seen guides and people saying that you can triple windows 7, osx 10.8 and ubuntu BUT can you do this with windows xp instead of windows 7? the reason i ask is this: a year ago i was able to triple boot windows xp, 10.6, and ubuntu and the guides said to put my harddrive bios into AHCI but i put into IDE and it still worked. however, i read that osx 10.8 NEEDS AHCI to work definitely. well, this is a problem since windows xp will not work/boot in AHCI mode. so theoratically, that means if i can boot osx 10.8, then i can't boot windows xp and vice versa. so has anyone tried triple booting windows xp, 10.8 osx and ubuntu and if so does it work?? i don't want to waste time trying it myself unless i need to, cause as we all know,installing hackintosh requires alot of patience and trial and error. THANKS IN ADVANCE!
  9. Hi Guys, I am back again with different problem. Now it is about partitions that are working on triple boot. First I had my acer aspire with stock windows 7 on it, from there I installed mac OS X Lion 10.7.5 to other partition and dual booted with chameleon boot loader successfully. Now then I installed ubuntu 12.04LTS to unallocated space shrinked from windows 7 in which I created extended partition with "/", "/home" & "/swap" and then installed ubuntu successfully. From here onwards when I booted from my hard disk the Grub boot loader comes up which was easy to dual boot windows 7 and Ubuntu but not OS X. During install I did select Linux root for grub to install. So now I tried the same thing by deleting extented partitions and creating only one primary partition for "/" root which it helped me in booting all the three OSs from chameleon.As the reason behind is chameleon can only read primary partitions. However I am happy with it but still I have some strange feeling that I may get any problems in future with physical memory or any other issues in Ubuntu.As if I may go for installing some high end design applications to use in future without making any "/swap"or "/home" partitions. So Im just wondering is there any solution to get out of it like changing bootloaders which are able to read extended partitions or linking bootloaders etc. At the same time I don't want to use Grub as my boot loader.It has boring design. Chameleon has got best themes. Any help?. Thanks in advance.
