Triple boot + shared data partition: testers needed
After many tries I succesfully managed to get my iMac 21.5 2011 with this configuration:
- OSX (Mountan Lion)
- Windows 7
- Ubuntu 12.04
- NTFS shared data partition
The shared data partition is handy so I can put my media there (music, movies, pictures) and they are accessible from any OS installed on my mac.
This involved many hours of trial and error, configurations and some stuff to setup. I wrote some notes months ago, but since I want to share what I did, I need a tester with some knowledge and with only OSX installed to help to replicate the steps I did.
If some volunteer is available and want to try, let me know!
Re: Triple boot + shared data partition: testers needed
I know this is an old post, but i have some questions:
- How are you booting to the different partitions? with rEFIt?
- Can you access your NTSF Data partition from Windows? From your list it seems that it is in the last place, which would make it more than 4 partitions away from the MBR and therefore not visible to Windows.. Also using NTSF you cant write to it from your MAC OS partition, correct?
