Quadbooting?.... Help me!

Alright, well I just ordered an HP dv9000t -- it comes installed with Vista. Id like to put on Mac OSX, XP, and Ubuntu


Vista I assume I will need to shrink the partition size and then just use gparted or knoppix to partition the rest? Will the order I install matter, as long as I can access GRUB.conf in the end?


Also with my laptop should i try to 10.4.8 or the 10.4.9 disc for MacOSX? And will i have to disable SATA support in BIOS before the install?

You better clean your HDD and start installing older to newer OSs.



Better Use Acronis Disk Director with Acronis Os Selector activated after first installation.


example 1x160 Giga Drive


C:/35 Gig, WinXP primary,active NTFS XP installation

D:/35 Gig, WinVI Primary NTFS Vista installation

E:/35 Gig, OSXT Primary FAT32 Os X installation

F:/35 Gig, LINUX Primary whatever Linux installation

G:/20 Gig, SWAP Primary FAT32 SWAP storage comunication
