Dual Boot Windows 8 Consumer Preview + Mountain Lion DP3

Recommended Posts

Hi all,


Just wondering whether it will be possible to do Dual Boot Windows 8 Consumer Preview + Mountain Lion DP3?


I currently have Windows 8 and Windows 7 Dual booting.


Also would this hardware setup be ok?


- Intel Core i7 2600k @ 4.4Ghz

- 8GB 1600Mhz Ram

- MSI P67A-GD53

- EVGA GTX 570 Superclocked

- Corsair Force 3 120GB SSD (Windows 8 Currently Installed here)

- 1TB Samsung Spinpoint F3 - 2x500GB Partitions (Old windows 7 installed here, is it possible to format this partition and install Mountain Lion here?)


So the desired outcome is to have Windows 8 and Mountain Lion dual booting. How would I go about this


Thanks, Kishan

I honestly wouldn't see a reason why dual booting windows 8 and ML would be impossible

I have succesfully dual booted windows 8 and lion together no problems whatsoever.


Partitions are basically sandboxes that don't interact between each other, so they're 100& independent from each other.


If you're using MBR, you'll want to make sure to grab the MBR file that's in the forums to install ML.


As far as your hardware, i can't help you on that as I have totally different hardware!


Have a good day!
