Thread: Dual Booting
11-12-2005, 05:59 PM #1cr0s3GuestDual Booting
I haven't tried it on a Mac yet but I have dual booted on a PC before. Is it pretty much the same thing?
Just make a partition and install the other OS (Linux) on the partion(s)?
Thanks for you help,
P.S. I hope this is in the right section.

If I understand what you said correctly your saying I can dual boot but I can't dual boot with windows?
Because I dont plan on doing that anyway so thats no prob. I just don't know Mac or Linux and would like to learn about both by forcing myself to.
Thanks for your response.

Yes, you can dual boot or multi-boot on a Mac. I use to run LinuxPPC way back when and it allowed you to pick the OS similar to holding the option key down while booting the current OS X.
make sure you put OS X on the first partition or drive. if you plan on installing Linux for your mac, do yourself a favor and buy a new drive. it will be easier to install and configure, trust me.
hope this helps,
