Ok, so if you have moral conflicts on the EULA then think of this as an educational question. so I have been wondering if there is a way to triple boot Hackintosh in addition to my current setup. I have Windows 7 Home Premium x64 and Ubuntu Precise Pangolin 12.04 LTS x64 dual booting with the standard grub bootloader for ubuntu 12.04. I have a partition I could convert for Mac OS X: my recovery drive. But if I were to do this, how would I configure grub to detect the partition, or, would the OSX Installation overwrite the grub with a Mac bootloader, and would that then autodetect my OS' on other partitions? I would prefer to use grub for this, and I still have the drive to repair my GRUB installation if its overwritten with the OSX one.
OKAY, so as I see that installing Mac OS X is not a problem, but I am not sure if the Mac OS X bootloader would suffice to boot all three operating systems. So if it did not, how would I proceed to reinstall grub WITHOUT ACCESS TO UBUNTU OR (possibly) WINDOWS. I do beleive if all goes well one of three scenarios will occur:
1.All of the operating systems are available to boot from startup.
2.Windows and OS X are available to boot from startup, but Ubuntu is not detected.
3.Only OS X will boot upon startup
In situations 2 and 3 I will have to reinstall grub without ubuntu, possibly off of a recovery drive. I highly doubt that the bootloader would detect linux but not windows. So what I need to know is how to configure grub in situations 2 and 3.
