Possible to Do GUID Triple Boot?

Recommended Posts

Is it possible to do a GUID partition map and have a triple bootable system on a single hard disk? I know you can do tricky things with rEFIt and gptsync, but I'm getting a bit confused because of the 4 partition limit for MBR based HDDs.

 

For instance, for a setup with Linux and Windows, you'd have 5 partitions with this setup potentially...

1. EFI Partition

2. OSX

3. Windows

4. Linux Swap

5. Linux

 

I'm having a hard time wrapping my brain around it and determining the what order to install each one, when to use gptsync, etc.. I don't mind what bootloader is used in the end (Windows', Chameleon, GRUB, etc..).

 

Thanks for the help. I couldn't find a post that catered to this particular situation in my searches. I know this is very possible with a second HDD...just by making it GUID and slapping OSX on that disk.

Very sorry...meant to post this in the Multi Booting and Virtualisation forum! My apologies.

    • @Gengik84  i kext sono aggiornati e messi nella partizione efi per il BT ho cercato in rete e come detto nei precedenti post 2 sono in efi ed uno in l/e.  Potresti dare un'occhiata alla mia efi  e le varie patch dsdt magari c'è qualcosa che non va... https://drive.google.com/open?id=1d7qfHs3KYEWANjtSlKyR29aEbgTFsytd   Grazieeee
    • Hi,  as per your guide, I have purchased the Wifi+bluetooth card you recommend twice! i can't get bluetooth to show up or work. Wifi is working though. I can assure you that i have my USBs fixed properly. still no luck with bluetooth. doesn't even show up in system pref.    "I'm using an original >> Apple BCM943602CS WIFI+bluetooth module and adapter, this has native support in macOS High Sierra and needs no kexts / drivers. It works out of the box!"   My setup is very similar to yours:  mobo: asus z370 F gaming  i7 8700k  gtx 1080ti    please advise me further!    much appreciated 
    • I had it working without any kext or inject when I installed sierra but my Geekbench scores where low and had some video playback issues. I'll try giving it a shot again without any frame buffers or kext and see if I can get it to work.    Also do you know if my MB has CSM? I don't see it on the MB website. 
    • @AceMcLoven R9 270X and R9 280X don't need anything to work in a Hackintosh, I have a MSI R9 270X and it works 100% OOB without any injection or selecting the framebuffer if I set InjectATI=True or select a framebuffer Futomaki it will go to black screen. Don't inject anything in the Graphics section. You don't even need the RadeonDeInit either, just make sure that the CSM is disabled in BIOS/UEFI. I've been using HDMI and DP ports and both work ok.
    • risolto!!! Fatto un'installazione pulita e poi ho seguito questo post  ...l'installazione deve essere pulita..senza kexts aggiuntivi di precedenti prove
