Help Setting Up VISTA, XP And OSX


New Member

I have been looking for the ability to triple boot with WIndows and OSX on a x86 for a long time, so I am praying I can do this with easyBCD. Unfortunately I think I may be a complete idiot and can't seem to figure out how I get the OSX on the system.

I currently have a Sun Ultra40 with two internal 250 SATA drives both partitioned with 4 partitions. The first drive has on partition 1 XP 64 bit, on the second partition VISTA. I want to get OSX on a partition but not sure how to do it and come up with the nst mac os file?

Any help would be very apprecated.

well to get the tiger img onto that partition.. you can do it with a ubuntu live cd. It took me forever to figure out how to copy it without just formatting to ntfs. many many many guides here

but I too am having trouble booting to it, I followed the instructions to the teet.. and im hoping there is a way to change the boot name to .img

Hi sundrieddn, phroztbyt3;

I'm afraid NeoSmart Technologies doesn't condone the use of OS X on generic x86 platforms except for those who received the special kits for Apple Computers.

NeoSmart Technologies (via EasyBCD) provides full support for _booting_ into OS X *once you have it installed* but we don't provide help with getting OS X up and running in the first place. is the place to go for that kind of info, and we're more than happy to help once you have OS X installed and want to boot into it.
