    Default Re-partitioning question

    Hi,

    I have a sony VAIO with the following partition layout (1 physical disk).

    partition 1 (120GB) - Windows Vista with bootloader & neogrub bootloader for....

    partition 2 (40GB) - Ubuntu 8.10.

    I hardly ever use the vista partition and would like to replace it with OSX (I have a desktop hackintosh so want the same OS on my laptop but want to keep my Ubuntu partition.

    Whats the best way to get rid of Vista but keep a bootloader which will boot both Ubuntu and OSX? Currently, at boot I can choose Vista or Neogrub bootloader which then loads grub to boot into Ubuntu. The bootloaders are on the Vista partition so if I trash that, I'll lose the bootloaders.

    Many thanks,

    cC

    I would suggest Acronis Disk Director with O/S Selector but as to the details of how you would get this running properly with your setup, I would hit this forum for some reading/advice: http://www.wilderssecurity.com/index.php

    hope it helps
