    How to Dual and Triple Boot Windows 7, Apple Mac OS X and Ubuntu 9.10 on a Laptop/Computer This also can be done with windows 8 as well




    How to Dual and Triple Boot Windows 7, Apple Mac OS X and Ubuntu 9.10 on a Laptop/Computer


    Screenshots of OS's on my Triple Boot Machine.




    Mac OSX installed on my Dell Inspiron 1520.




    Youtube Video






    Introduction

    This tutorial is intended for people who have some to a lot of knowledge of computers, partitions and OS's. If you plan on formating your computer you might consider my other hub:
    The total time to do this all in 1 go should be around 3+/- hours. I wont post links on where to get the DVD's. (Google).
    //Ay Guys I just installed the latest Ubuntu 10.04 and it works great with dualboot for those wanting to experiement or a too nervous of going the whole way..yum




    What You Will Need.......To Get Started

    Click edit above to add content to this empty capsule.

    • A copy of iATKOS, iPC, Kalyway DVD (Snow Leopard not supported yet)
    • Windows 7 RTM DVD
    • Ubuntu 9.10 (latest) DVD
    • A decent working computer/laptop
    • A second internet source (incase anything goes wrong)
    • Printed version of this guide (unless viewing off another machine)

    Suggested Laptops are Dell Inspirons, Acer and HP.




    .:isclaimer::.

    Click edit above to add content to this empty capsule.
    I do not take any responsibility for any problems you recieve from following this tutorial. By following the tutorial you are agreeing to enhance your laptop/computer machine under your own responsibility and desire.
    Lets Begin :^)


    Step1: Install Windows 7

    Installing Windows 7 is easy and should take between 15mins - 40mins (machine dependent).
    First you'll need to boot up with a Windows 7 DVD you presumably have burned already. I Prefer erasing a hard drive and "clean installing" Windows on there. Upgrade if you want doesn't matter. Once installation is complete, reboot and your machine should go straight into Windows. Set up Windows to your likings and install drivers if needed.

    • If you want Windows 7, Ubuntu and Mac OSX (Triple Boot) go to step 2.
    • If you want Windows 7 and Mac OSX (Dual Boot) go to step 3.









    Step 2: Install Ubuntu (not necessary)

    There are 2 main ways to install Ubuntu. I'll be doing the way I find easiest and user friendly.
    Log into your Windows and insert the Ubuntu Disk. If the installer opens automatically great. If not browse the disk and look for Wubi. Run Wubi and the installer should appear. As a installation option select "Install inside of Windows". This is the easiest way to install Ubuntu for even the most novice of computer user. Select a drive (Use the same as Windows), select a minimum of 7 gigs of space for Ubuntu. Enter your username and password for your new account. Installation should take around 30 minutes or less.
    Reboot your machine and Ubuntu should appear under Windows 7 highlight it with the arrow keys and press Enter button. Ubuntu will start up now. Install any nessesary programs, drivers and explore your new Ubuntu :^) . Shutdown you machine.
    Congratulations thus far you should have Windows 7 and Ubuntu Successfully installed and working. Grad a drink and food now.

    • Proceed to step 3 to install Mac OSX



    Step 3: Install Mac OSX

    Boot up into Windows 7. In the start menu search "computer management" (Here is were we partition a drive for Mac). In the left panel select Disk Management and partition 15GB or more for Mac OSX. The Partition should be formated as Fat32. Insert the Mac OSX disk and reboot.
    Boot into the Mac OSX disk. When prompted to install in 'x' seconds type "-v" without quotation marks. A bunch of writing should appear and stay on the screen for a about 5 mins or less.
    When prompted go to Disk Utility at the top panel and select to erase the partition you plan on installing Mac OSX on. Format the partition as Mac OS Journal. Close the window and select install. Let it install, this should take around 20 minutes. Afterwards Mac OSX with boot up, you may notice you don't have sound yet and your resolution is the greatest.




    Step 3: Install Mac OSX - - continied - -

    Now its up to you to install the drivers your new Hackintosh machine will require. For Dell Inspiron Users I'll be putting together a package for you to download to get the drivers. But till then do a little googling.
    Almost done, we're heading to the final steps. When you reboot and select Windows you'll notice that your unable to. Reboot your computer but insert the Windows 7 (or even Vista) and select "repair" when its done loading. Select "Startup repair", this should take about a minute or so. Reboot and you'll notice Mac OSX is missing. Boot into Windows 7 and download a program called "EasyBCD". Open the program and select to add entry (We're going to add the Mac OSX entry. From the drop down box select Mac. Under Drive select "boot". Now reboot and there you go.


    FINISH

    Last thing you need to do is update your programs and software on your OS's. You've officially completed the Tutorial.

    I run it about 50% of the time, dual booting with 7 on my laptop. Really nice so far imho.

    How is it? I'm debating running it on my netbook, since I don't use that for anything important anymore and it runs windows 7 smoothly.

    Definitely different, but runs well and kinda sleek... I haven't done any major tasks on it, just tinker around with it. But so far, most of my stuff is working fine on it. The skydrive integration is pretty neat - it's a very cloud-based design, integrated together quite well.

    I'm going to download the .iso when I get home and put it on a different partition. I'm excited to try this out.
    Don't be scared, adb is your friend.
