Triple Booting Using GRUB


4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Breaking into Linux (openSUSE 10.2 64bit) and MAC at the same time. I'm trying to get everything to work off the same drive. Here's the set-up:


XP in C:

Vista in D:

MAC in E:

OpenSUSE in a logical partition.


Using GRUB as the loader. Menu selections:

SUSE 10.2




When I select Windows, it goes to the Windows loader where XP or Vista can be selected ......... both work fine. Of course, SUSE works fine. When you select MAC, nothing happens. GRUB loader statement:


blockoffset=1, chainloader=/dev/sda3, noverifyroot, root= (it is set to activate the MAC partition when starting MAC.)


ERROR Message: HFS+ Partition Error


Has anyone been able to boot MAC OSX using GRUB?
