    Question Tri booting with separate HDD, need help!

    I have been searching for literally hours on forums and on google on how to do this. I want to tri boot Snow Leo, Linux, and Windows XP using Chameleon Bootloader. Up until now I have Snow Leo and linux working nicely together, grub does not create any problems when booting. The thing is that I want to add a drive with Windows XP already installed on it to the choices of OS to boot from in Chameleon. My question is, will I be able to boot XP just by booting in SL and reinstalling chameleon and restarting? From what I have read many people have said XP has to be the MBR and to install snow leo on a small 100mp partition of that drive instead. Thing is I would prefer if snow leo was the main boot. Can anyone help me, or at least give me a small tutorial? I want to do this right the first time and not mess up.

    Just set your BIOS, Chameleon will boot your 3 OS's without any problem.

    Ok awesome! So just to double check. My bios are already set to boot my SL HDD as the main boot drive. So if I install the XP drive and then boot into SL and run Chameleon installer again it should just recognize the XP drive and I will be able to boot no problem correct?

    Alright I am having major trouble and I don't know how to fix it. The drive which I installed in my computer has XP installed already, but has the drivers for the old computer it was on and when I boot into it from chameleon I get a black screen. When I try to boot into just the drive I get blue screen, I can't catch the error because it restarts right afterward. I tried running the original XP install disc but I get a blue screen with that too. If there is anyone out there who can help me get this drive working with chameleon I will be SO THANKFUL!
