Triple Booting iMac - Mac OS X, Vista, & Ubuntu

#1
Hi all. This is my first post here, and I have a quick question.
EasyBCD sounds like an awesome tool, but would it work on my iMac? I've read that it uses the Vista bootloader, so I was just wondering if I would be able to make OS X my primary OS, and still use EasyBCD.

And also, has anyone else out there triple booted an iMac like this? I know it's been done quite a bit with XP, but if anyone has experience with this specific triple boot, some tips would be greatly appreciated (this is my first tri-boot).

Thanks.

Hi Zac, welcome to NST.
EasyBCD is, in the main, a GUI for the Vista BCDedit utility, to drag it from the 1980s into the 21st century. It does what the name suggests and edits the Vista BCD.
If Vista is not your controlling OS, ie if you're not multi-booting via Vista's BCD, then it has no real function.

The only possible solution would be to go thru Boot Camp to get Vista to start to boot and then use EasyBCD. But from what i know once you choose Vista from boot camp it bypasses the bootloader. So i dont know if that would work or not.
