Quad-booting: Vista, Ubuntu, Solaris & Mac OSX?


1 post in this topic

Recommended Posts



I am currently dual-booting Vista & XP, but I will uninstall XP soon, and replace it with Solaris.


I will also install mac (from: http://forum.insanelymac.com/index.php?sho...0&p=513358)


What I want to know, is how I can choose between partitions (I can use 1 or 2 harddrives for these 3 operating systems, I will also try to install Ubuntu, so please keep that in mind!)

1. Vista

2. Mac

3. Solaris

4. Ubuntu


So... how do I do it?


I have a 4GB, a 2GB & a 1GB USB thumb drives to use, so that is no issue (if it is truly neccasary I can save up and buy an 8GB USB)


I have a SATA 500GB Harddrive & an IDE 400GB Harddrive.


My specs;

Motherboard: ASUS P5K-E WiFi

CPU: Intel Core 2 Quad (Q6600)

Heatsink: Zalman 9700LED

RAM: 2GB DDR2 (2x1GB) A-DATA (800) (Will be upgrading soon to 8GB [4x2GB] Kingston [800])

Graphics Card: GIGABYTE 8800GTS 512MB

Case: Antec P182

Optical Drive: A-OPEN 20x SATA

PSU: Antec Trio 650W


Monitor: ASUS VW222 (22'' WS)


And that's about it... unless you want to know about my second monitor (19'' Samsung) or my speakers, keyboard & mouse? :P


Anyways, please tell me how I can quad boot those 4 operating system.


Thanks in advance,




PS: I recently finished building this computer, so it is very good


PPS: Will I be able to access the partition that has mac on it, from any of my other partitions (OS's)?
