Welcome to my 2 parts guide on how to configure the iMAC for a typical triple boot configuration topped with some little extra goodies.
The system I want shall definitively include:
- Mac OS 10.5.3 Leopard
- Debian GNU/Linux 5.0 “Lenny” (64 bit)
- Windows Vista (32 bit)
In order to achieve this we will go through the following steps:
- Repartition the Hard Drive in order to accommodate the other OSs
- Install a boot manager (rEFIt)
- Install Debian
- Install Vista
- Finalize the process (clean and minor other stuff).
The first two steps will be covered in this post, while the others will be covered in the upcoming post “iMac triple-boot (Part 2): OSs installation“.
