Xp + Vista + Ubuntu in 2 drives


New Member
Hi all, i'm trying to "triple boot" Xp Professional, Vista and latest Ubuntu Linux.
I've 2 HD with some partitions: i think that an image it's much more clear :grinning:

How can i make the Vista bootloader able to boot Linux?? I've used 1,3 (disk, partition) but the screen goes black with a blinking cursor and no error message or whatever...

Any help will be appreciated, and sorry for my terrible english :grinning:

/edit: i forgot some (maybe) important info:
"C" is Windows XP, "D" is Windows Vista both on SATA drive
"G" is a Fat32 partition with Data, Linux Ubuntu is the last partition. This is an old IDE (PATA) drive.

Hello Uzirox,

Welcome to NeoSmart Technologies.

You need to install GRUB to the bootsector of the Ubuntu 7.04 partition.
I tested these exact steps with same exact configuration you're doing, and it worked great:


Good luck.
