    Default Triple Boot: XP,Ubuntu and MAC, Need help in my experimentation

    Right now I am able to triple boot those three OS via Grub bootloader. But I'm trying to load the xp and ubuntu in Mac via Parallels Desktop. I have 1 harddisk with different partitions in each OS. When tried to load xp via Parallel Desktop. Ive already edited the ".pvs" and added "disc0s1" at the end of disk image = Boot Camp. When I tried to run the XP it says "Grub Grub Grub". My screen is filled with Grub. I tried to reinstall XP and now my Grub bootloader is gone. Im now booting on MAC OS but now the error in loading xp via Parallel Desktop is "Error Loading Operating System".

    How do I configure this? Is there a way I can Triple boot xp,ubuntu and mac and at the same time able to load xp and ubuntu in parallels desktop?

    Help is appreciated

    Whenever I used to have problems dual booting I get my B.F.H! and smas-- ...I mean install grub onto a floppy disk then use hidden partitions so that the file systems in the different partitions don't f*ck with each other while they are sleeping. I haven't had a floppy disk on a computer in years but most of the new ones should have an option to boot from usb so you should be able to put grub or something similar on a thumb drive or sd card. Try updating the bios if you don't have a boot from usb option in your options. Grub is faster and i think better(i think less is more) but if you want to be lazy you can use acronis os selector. I am lazy and I am using it now for my dual boot it has hide and un-hide and has worked every time for me with basically no configuration problems at all, dont know if it'll boot from removables though. Also: what hardware are u running?(mac pc specs) where did u put your respective os' (hd0,0-xp hd0,1-osx hd0,2-nix, etc). Windows install will always erase the mbr to install it's own b-loader, which b.t.w. i know you can boot 'nix from. Dont know bout X tho. Doesn't seem to be that differrent from grub, really. I don't know how parallels works, i'm assuming it's a virtual machine? It probably got pointed to your hd0 partition where you told it windows would be and it got a mouthful of grub that it wasn't expecting. Then you reinstalled xp which killed grub. Then killed grub with osx bootloader. You probly need to run ntldrfix then reinstall grub on top of it. Wtf were u putting boot camp on there for if you had a working triple boot anyways? also you can't screw around with your 'nix boot partition after you've installed grub with grub pointing to it's directory and diskmap if you did anything to change that partition that will screw up grub every time. It really does work much better and safer if you run grub from a removable disk because of this, i think. I'm about to try an xp install to usb drive because I want osx on the fast part of my drive, and a small archlinux install behind it for networking. Maybe even all x on the internal with grub on the usb then u can just plug in and run parallels or boot from it for games or sound production. One small xtra boot partition with rescue/backup/diagnostic utilities. I'll let u know how it went
