You should read the WIKI or g00gle for this phrase: osx86 10.4.7 HCL


This will show you a semi-up-to-date chart for hardware that works with or without fixes.


As for triple boot:

Install winxp pro, then partition magic.

Create partition for vista and UNFORMATTED and UNALLOCATED parition fos OSx86. Install vista to vista partition and double check winxp and vista. When both are working, then insert your osx86 dvd and install osx86 to your UNFORMATTED and UNALLOCATED partition. Boot into winxp using partition magic and make OSX partition (AF TYPE) ACTIVE.


Once done all that, reboot and you will be able to use the OSX bootloader:

Press F8 during boot. You will see:


0:0 = winxpp

0:1 = vista

0:2 = osx86


Pick 0:0 to boot to winxp OR vista


How it works? OSx86 bootloader reads all OSes.

0:2 = osx no problem there


0:1 = no bootloader found (but don't worry)

0:0 = winxp (but when pressed it will give you VISTA bootloader)


Older version of windows

Windows Vista


Pick one and go have fun!

Might not be the cleanest method but works!
