GRUB Triple Boot XP FC3 Debian/Knoppix HD Install
location: linuxquestions.com - date: December 2, 2004
I have XP, Debian/Knoppix as a HD Install, and FC3 on my laptop. They all work. I installed XP, then Knoppix, then FC3. Before FC3, XP and Knoppix went through lilo, and they both booted fine. When I installed FC3 I told it to install GRUB, and set it up to boot all three, or so I thought. It boots FC3, and XP just fine. It had a chainloader+1 thing for Debian, and I know enough linux to know that might not work. So I edited grub.conf, and copied what FC3's boot up commands were. Then I mounted the Debian partition, and looked for what the exact names of the vmlinuz and initrd were, and it turns out it was just that. Before any GRUB modifying it just gave me a semi command prompt, but said grub instead of C:\, or root, or anything. After modifying grub, Debian boots a little, then says "Kernel Panic" and that something is named wrong. What bootup commands do I need to boot Debian/Knoppix 3.6?
Triple boot with Ubuntu, Debian and Windows XP
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 18, 2010
I had a dual booting system with Xubuntu Lucid and Windows XP. Today, while installing Debian Lenny, I mistakenly overwrote Grub2 with the Grub legacy that came with Debian.
I tried editing menu.lst and adding an entry for Ubuntu, but booting to Ubuntu fails with the error :
"Filesystem type unknown, partition type 0x82.
Error 17 :Cannot mount selected partition."
Xubuntu resides on an Ext4 partition.
Grub's menu.lst looks like this :
# menu.lst - See: grub(8), info grub, update-grub(8)
# grub-install(8), grub-floppy(8),
# grub-md5-crypt, /usr/share/doc/grub
# and /usr/share/doc/grub-legacy-doc/.
## default num
# Set the default entry to the entry number NUM. Numbering starts from 0, and
# the entry number 0 is the default if the command is not used.
# You can specify 'saved' instead of a number. In this case, the default entry
# is the entry saved with the command 'savedefault'.

Debian on MacBook Pro in Triple Boot setup
location: linuxquestions.com - date: March 12, 2008
I've installed Debian on my new MacBook Pro along with Windows and Mac OS X. The installation proceed like a charm. Atleast as much a charm as described here. So now I see Mac OS X, Windows and Linux in the rEFIt menu. However, if I choose to boot into Linux, it boots into Windows. Windows boots into Windows too. Anyone have any idea what the problem might be? Thanks.
Can't boot Debian in triple boot
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: March 6, 2010
O.K., I'm a newbie, and I'm lost. After reading hours on GRUB and bootloaders, I still don't understand much. Here's my story:
I had (and still do) a working dual-boot XP/Karmic (GRUB version 1.97 beta4). I shrank the Ubuntu partition and set up partitions and installed Debian 5.04. When I got to the point of installing GRUB, I told Debian to install grub to MBR. On rebooting, Ubuntu was not an option on the NEW (looked different) grub menu. Maybe it was GRUB2? Could boot to either XP or Debian though.
Thought easiest thing was to reinstall Ubuntu since it seems to "see" other OS's more reliably. So I did, and installed GRUB again during its install to MBR. Then, all three were in the GRUB menu (version 1.97 beta4 again), but when tried booting to Debian, got an error (forget the wording), but think it was because the partitions got renumbered when installing Ubuntu.
SO, reinstalled Debian, reformatting the partitions but not deleting them first so the numbe
Triple Boot Windows XP, Ubuntu 11.10 and Debian 6
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: December 16, 2011
I have windows on a 180GB drive and Ubuntu is on a 250GB drive. I would like to keep windows on it's own drive and repartition the 250GB for Ubuntu and Debian to reside.
What I need is a good partitioning scheme using the primary, extended and logical and mount points. I have the g-parted live CD and of course the install discs.
Thanks for all the help in advance.

Triple boot help with latest Ubuntu distro on Apple Mac book Pro with Bootcamp.
location: linuxquestions.com - date: April 30, 2011
I am using Bootcamp with a dual boot function with Mac OSX Snow Leopard and Windows 7. I now want to introduce a 30gb partition for the latest Ubuntu Distro.
I really want to be careful to ensure I dont break anything as it works perfectly at the moment. I have used Rfix and Bootpicker to manage the dual boot processes as well as using the option key in Bootcamp to boot into each OS.
Does anyone have any advice how I could create a new partiton for me to use for Linux. I want to make a 30gb partion.
Any step by step instructions would be fantastic. I really want to improve my Linux skills and want to run it natively rather than thru a virtual machine using VMware or Parallels.
