    Default Triple boot Mac Pro with 3 different physical Hard Drives

    Hi all!

    As topic tells you, I'm trying to triple boot a Mac Pro.

    I've successfully triple booted my MacBook with OS X, Win 7 and Ubuntu, all on the same internal drive.

    Now I'm trying to set up a Mac Pro for video editing. We need OS X, Windows and Linux. For a performance boost, I want all os'es to have its own internal SSD drive (a big enough SSD drive to keep all os'es is too expensive). My problem is that rEFIt does not support booting of more than one drive. I know that Bootcamp supports booting off more than one drive, but it does not support triple booting. Anyone have a suggestion on how to fix this issue?

    Thanks!

    Erik

    Default

    Well, then lilo/grub is the only way to go if they reside on diff HDs. You must configure the .conf file of lilo/grub to point to each OS/HD/Partition. The only stupid thing is, that you may push enter twice, depends on how each OS is configured to boot (30 seconds, instant, etc.). Good luck...
