I finally managed to get the tripple boot going on my Compaq CQ5145SC.

 

What I did is probably general whatever installation you use, but I used MyHack from http://www.osx86.sojugarden.com/installer/ to do this.

 

I first made a copy of Snow Leopard with the MyHack-installed on it. You need a Mac running system to make this external HDD boot disc.

 

I them partitionated 3 partition: 1) OSX - 500 GB (the limit is underneath 1GB for hackintosh installations, you can resize it after the first or second boot) 2) Windows - 50 GB 3) Ubuntu - 25 GB

 

  1. I then installed OSX SL from the external HDD, no MyHack-applied.
  2. Then Windows 7
  3. Then Ubuntu with the Wubi installer, found at http://www.ubuntu.com/desktop/get-ubuntu/windows-installer via Windows 7.
  4. Then I installed EasyBootCD and added the missing OSX-menu entry.

 

Everything works very well... The Windows Boot Manager is fine enough for me. Simple and easy to start up the different options.

 

Gonna perfect it further now...

 

Issues:

 

* Getting the Chamelon loader to select my main partition all the time.

* Fixing video in Snow Leopard. Anyone got a tips on a good driver here ?
