    Default Wanting to install a third OS on netbook

    Hey guys. So I already have Windows XP SP3 install alongside Ubuntu 11.04 and was looking to add another install of either Win7 Pro or OS X 10.7 Lion. I have no idea where to start and if this is even possible on the same HDD that I am using for my current dual boot.

    Here is a screenshot of my layout in Win XP (can do one on GParted on request)

    The first (NTFS) partition has XP installed on it and the other two are running linux.

    Couldn't find out whether or not my netbook was compatible or not. Source:

    Mac OS X Netbook Compatibility Chart

    Here are the hardware spec's of my netbook:
