View Full Version : [ubuntu] Triple Boot--Is this possible?

June 22nd, 2009, 08:50 AM
My laptop has multiple partitions. xp pro and Vista are running with VistaBootPro controlling the startup. Is it possible to install Ubuntu in a ext3 formatted partition and somehow still get to boot all three OS's? I used Paragon to blow off the Acer Vista restore partition and reformat it to ext3. I'd love to have a third choice: Ubuntu.

I'm a little timid to trash the dual boot system with a stupid move installing Ubuntu. Nobody seems to boot anything other than two systems, and VistaBootPro thinks that Windows is the only operating system in existence. I have a feeling that were I to install Ubuntu onto the ext3 partition, I'd send the rest to Alphabet Heaven. Byte Hill. *sigh*

Any advice is welcome now--the runway is in the front. Let me know!

Yes, of course. As long as you know how to setup your bootloader. For Windows, I'd use EasyBCD to configure the Windows bootloader
