    Question Triple Boot: XP, Vista, OSX

    So I have a triple boot:

    XP Pro SP2 (NTFS disk0r1);
    Vista Ultimate (NTFS dsk0r2);
    OSX86 10.4.8 AMD/Intel SSE2/SSE3 Jas (HFS+ disk0r3)

    If XP is active I get Vista bootloader showing:

    OLD VERSION OF WINDOWS (XP)
    Windows VISTA ULTIMATE

    I pick XP and all is well.

    If VISTA is active I get Vista bootloader showing:

    OLD VERSION OF WINDOWS (XP)
    Windows VISTA ULTIMATE

    I pick XP and all is well.
    I pick Vista and all is well.

    If OSX is active I get HFS+ partition error.
    To fix this error I found this guide:
    In following, I will assume we have one HDD with two partitions: part#1 = OSX and part#2 = Vista

    1. Boot off OSX dvd disc in single user mode (press F8 and type -s)
    2. At single user prompt
    fdisk -e /dev/rdisk0
    flag 1
    update
    write
    quit
    4 reboot

    At this point OSX should boot up, just like prior to Vista installation.
    1 In a terminal window,
    su root
    fdisk -e /dev/rdisk0
    flag 2
    quit
    2 reboot

    Vista will say "\Window\system32\winload" corrupted, and it will tell you to insert Vista disc and recover.
    Follow directions from Vista and recover, then reboot. Check Vista boots and works fine.

    1. Boot off OSX dvd disc for single user one last time (press F8 and type -s)
    2. At single user prompt
    fdisk -e /dev/rdisk0
    flag 1
    quit
    3. reboot
    What I'd like to have finally is:

    OSX active showing:

    Windows XP
    Windows Vista Ultimate
    OSX

    Can someone clear up this guide for me because here's how I get to my HACK currently:

    Press F12 to boot from optical drive with 10.4.8 DVD.
    Let sit and eventually enters my installation.

    If I try to press F8 and type -s then press ENTER it loads OSX.
    How can I fix the rest of this issue? BOOTME suggested to use TERMINAL.

    Sorry for being noob but trust me, once this is fixed you won't regret helping me.
    I'm bringing something big to the OSX86 scene...wanna know what? Ask Semthex!

    If you want to the defualt to be your OS X partition then stop after this:

    At this point OSX should boot up, just like prior to Vista installation.
    1 In a terminal window,
    su root
    fdisk -e /dev/rdisk0
    flag 2
    quit
    2 reboot

    If you want to the ability to choose your vista and xp installation, then put a pause of 10 seconds in your boot.plist (do a search here or insanelymac.com) and it will pause your boot and give you a list of your partitions. Select the appropriate partition and hit enter, and your good to go.

    PS: This is a tutorial section, post questions in the appropriate places and you will get better answers and quicker response.

    I posted here by mistake and already asked 2 moderators to move this to the correct section.

    Thank you for your help but are you 100% clear on the fact that VISTA overwrites almost all boot loaders?

    This is where my confusion comes into play...my current OSX installation doesn't boot without the dvd.

    So wouldn't I have to write:

    FLAG 3

    You have listed XP/Vista/OSX in your sig. Is this the order of your partitions? And how many disks do you have? Assuming you have 1 disk and your partitions are like your sig... Yes, you would use flag 3.

    You have already done the tutorial that you quoted. I should have said that you only need to repeat the second step... After you have it booting correctly into vista. You just need to make the OS X partition active to activate the Darwin bootloader.

    You can actually do this with Vista by using the diskpart command. (you may already know this)

    Type diskpart in the run dialog.
    Type "select disk 0" & hit enter where 0 is the number of your disk
    Type "select partition 3" & hit enter where 3 is the number of the OSX partition
    Type "active" & hit enter, this makes that partition active.
    Type "exit" and hit enter.

    To list the disks avialable to diskpart type "list disk" and hit enter or "list partition" to list the partitions.
    ---

    Actually after rereading your original post, I think there might be something missing from the resource your quoted.

    After the flag 2 command I think it should be like this

    flag 2
    update
    write
    quit
    reboot

    but if you give us the order of your partitions/drives it would be helpful... I am sorry if this post is confusing.

    My setup is as follows:

    XP Pro SP2 (NTFS disk0r1);
    Vista Ultimate (NTFS dsk0r2);
    OSX86 10.4.8 AMD/Intel SSE2/SSE3 Jas (HFS+ disk0r3)

    I haven't done this yet as my XP is something I need to be 100% sure to preserve.

    I was told I could do this in terminal in single user mode.

    Does each line denote pressing enter? Or do I enter all these commands in one prompt?

    To be honest, I don't care much about my Vista installation at the moment.

    Just want Darwin to permit me to boot to XP and OSX86; showing both in my list.
    Currently I have only OSX86 in my list b/c I have to boot from the DVD.

    You would hit enter after each item.

    In the quote you posted it, to get your partition 3 bootable (OSX) you would need to do this:

    1. Boot off OSX dvd disc in single user mode (press F8 and type -s)
    2. At single user prompt
    fdisk -e /dev/rdisk0
    flag 3<- change to 3
    update
    write
    quit
    reboot

    Update...

    Fixed the HFS+ Partition error.

    Sometimes OSX86 fails to boot but after 2-3 tries it fixes whatever the problem is.

    My guess is permissions and kext caches.

    Now to fix the mbr entries for Vista and XP.

    Keep everyone posted.

    TY jedavis1.

    Fixed HFS+ partition error.

    Fixed Vista partition error.

    Made XP partition active, entered repair, did fixboot.

    XP Boots.

    Set OSX86 Parition Active.

    Boots to XP, Vista, and OSX.

    Success.

    The guide should ultimately only tell you to set each OS partition active, boot using installation CD/DVD, fix boot properly for each OS installed, test each boot, reset OSX86 Partition Active, and enjoy.
