View Full Version : [other] Questions before I go triple-boot

April 25th, 2009, 08:57 AM
I've been running Ubuntu Jaunty on Wubi for a while now, and have loved it. I recently set up a regular dual-boot with Windows XP and Linux Mint 6 on the same computer, and uninstalled Wubi. I now want to triple-boot with Ubuntu Jaunty (hopefully Karmic soon), and Mint and XP. I currently am using Mint's GRUB, and it has worked fine in recognizing my XP partition and all. Will I encounter any problems setting up the triple-boot in this fashion? I am worried that either Ubuntu will overwrite Mint because they have similar setups, or that GRUB will have problems recognizing all three OS's. Any advice?

I'm pretty sure that if you install jaunty then it will write it's own GRUB file which will contain xp and mint as well. You shouldn't have any problems.

Edit -> You may want to wait for confirmation from someone else before you go ahead though because I've never tried dual-booting Ubuntu and Mint.
