    Default Triple Boot Grub Loader, first Windows 7 and Ubuntu 10.04 then iDeneb 1.6?

    Hello!

    I have a question about something I want to install on my system. Currently I have first installed Windows 7 x64 and some time after that I decided to install Ubuntu 10.04 for some more performance. As you know Ubuntu installs the Grub boot loader and puts in there the system entries. The Grub loader starts up at first before the Windows boot selector.

    Now my problem is of what I am not sure of is when I would install iDeneb 1.6 on my system how it will boot and my other systems are still working. Does it automatically adds itself to the Grub loader, or do I need another boot loader?

    Please help me how to make sure all the systems would boot properly.

    Thanks for your help.

    Default Hi I have the same issue and with an external hard drive too!

    I found windows will not allow any more then four partitions to be made so I attempted something similar to you without success. Trust me iDeneb trumps Ubuntu even if you can install it and have all the other systems operating properly.

    Personally I find it a challenge but fun nevertheless; sometimes a waste of time.

    Just wondering how to make the BIOS or the bootloader on my computer recognize the external right away.

    Here are some points for you.
    1. Not more than 4 PRIMARY partition is the rule of MBR disc scheme, not windows (as GPT/GUID can have 128 pri part.)
    2. iDeneb does not trump Unbutu. The most recent OS installation will take over MBR sector.

    You can use Grub2 or Chameleon to boot multiple OS, but Grub2 won't be able to pass boot option/flag to OSX.

    Default Thanks - I just wanted to write how I fixed everything

    I realize I was having so much trouble because I had installed Ubuntu on an external drive

    Thanks ratvn

    I was writing partly out of frustration.

    Here's a howto if you want a clean multi-boot setup right away. 10 easy steps.
    Benefits:
    ready to use
    if you uninstall Ubuntu, iDeneb remains the second boot loader under windows

    Now if you actually are going to try this number one, copy down on paper the important information that you think you will need or print it out and any other information you may need from the web.
    Note---- This is not a complete tutorial, you must look at or search other tutorials to complete the following.


    Ignore the above if you have a second computer handy with internet availible


    However if you want all the OS' working cleaning together in a multi boot setup what I suggest is:
    What you need:

    Some cd-roms of about 4.7 gig space (the usual)
    A computer
    Hopefully a device to store any information that must be saved
    examples
    external hard drive
    internet storage
    a very large capacity usb stick
    another computer

    The Steps

    1 Find out all the information you can about your system (computer model) and write it down (psychically); you will need this info especially when looking for a version of iDeneb that suits you.
    Go here for system compatibility (there are many versions of iDeneb)

    OSx86

    2 Once you have decided upon the version of OS's you will be using (I suggest Lucid Lynx (The Newest Ubuntu Version) and iDeneb 1.5 or higher; but this all depends on your system
    Note---- Focus on getting iDeneb right
    If you can't find enough information too make sure your iDeneb will be compatible just get 3 or 4 versions from a torrent source, then download the image files and write them to a disc (not as data though, as bootable images)
    ex. v1.3 1.4 1.5 and 1.6
    Note---- The versions inbetween are usually patches
    )
    3 Make bootable copies of all your .iso operating image files; with windows just get your retail copy and use that or you can get your hacked Windows "se7en" or xp image and create a bootable disc (personally i think windows has to much copyright protection to mess with but you decide) just make sure they aren't data discs and test them putting them in your cd/dvd drive restarting your puter going to your boot menu (usually pressing f2, f8 or f12 ; it should say)select your cd/dvd drive and see (as soon as a loading screen or obvious sign that it works is shown exit the install; "once you see it is bootable"
    4 save everything you need (documents etc.) soon to be formatted information take screenshots of programs you had and will reinstall, and maybe write down somewhere your saved passwords or if you have a google sync account you shoudn't have to worry about this.
    5 create the number partitions matching the number of operating systems at whichever size you please (at between 6 and 10 gigs being the minimum); use the live Ubuntu cd or your Windows cd disk partitioner (see other tutorials) gparted is noted as one of the best which can be downloaded on the ubuntu live cd and run.
    6 Install ideneb whichever version you think best (see the various tutorials to get an idea on what you need to do; search google, youtube, etc.)
    7 test iDeneb test your speakers and the general functionality
    8 test your internet this is a common problem especially with wireless (the simplest solution if your speakers, and all else works fine is to find a compatible wireless usb stick to whatever version you've installed (usually 10$; good ones at about 30$-40$)
    9 If your first iDeneb disc failed and you had a back-up plan with extra disc with other versions try those; just erase the other version on whatever partition it was and install the new one on the now clean partition (this is important).
    8 Once iDeneb is installed audio good, video etc. Install your version of windows, if you want to update your bios now not later.
    9 Install Ubuntu using the side by side disc installation or if you know what you're doing your personalized method
    10 restart your computer and there grub should be listing all your operating systems like nothing right.


    That's it the ten steps to successfully installing the multi-boot setup.
    Wow that took a long time to right.
    Writing these tutorials in hopes of helping the other people really puts in perspective how much work people must do to give me the tutorials that helped me.
    U know just saying, "Pass what you know along right."
    Whoever you are reading this share what you know, "Pass it along."
    Even if it is failure that can be learned from especially.

    Default For TehM1ZZL3

    Triple Boot Grub Loader, first Windows 7 and Ubuntu 10.04 then iDeneb 1.6?
    Hello!

    I have a question about something I want to install on my system. Currently I have first installed Windows 7 x64 and some time after that I decided to install Ubuntu 10.04 for some more performance.

    Please help me how to make sure all the systems would boot properly.

    Thanks for your help.
    However ratvn is right you really have the option. Ubuntu once installed on your internal hard disk will take full control.

    You're very welcome.
    Thank you for sharing your experience/solution, and I'm sure many will need to refer to your tutorial for guidance.

    Thanks again.
    Regards
