Triple boot: Ubuntu 12.04, Niresh, Windows 8.1

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,
I want to write something about having a triple boot.
 
I had Ubuntu 12.04(32 bits) and Windows 8.1 (64 bits).
With Ubuntu I had Grub to select the SO to boot.
 
Then I installed niresh mavericks with the bootloader (default installation config) and I said goodbye to Grub-->1º problem
Throught niresh boot, I could start niresh and windows, but not ubuntu.
Then, I started with Ubuntu Live and I had to install the grub on the partition of the disk.
With Grub again, I can init Ubuntu and Windows, but no niresh.
To solve the problem, you have to modify the grub.cfg manually and search the entry of niresh and change with something like this:
menuentry "Mac OS X 10.9.3 (on /dev/sda3)" --class osx --class darwin --class os {
   insmod hfsplus
   set root='(hd0,3)'
   multiboot /boot
}
 
hdX is the disk and 3 is the partition. (I think, I have to see my guide in Ubuntu and update this post, sorry)
 
In Grub, you select Mac OS X 10.9.3 and then you'll see the boot of niresh and you can select niresh =)
 
With this you can have a triple boot.
 
I hope this would be usefull for you.

I have the same question.

the grub can detect the mac os's existence by "grub-update" cmd.

but I can't boot the mac os by select item in grub menu.

I think we still neet some tools such as Chameleon to do some help.

 

can some one give advice?

    • I get this message no matter what I do, I've tried changing my SMBIOS to a newer model to no avail. Anyone no how to get the second install boot to work?
    • This is my first time doing Hackintosh. I've several other machines running Mac using UniBeast and Multi beast. I wanted to try Hackintosh Vanilla. So far, no luck. I followed the Guide and MacPwn Mojave Guide. 
    • Hello! I wanted to install MacOS High Sierra, but the SSD does not appear in Disk Manager. I have a Samsung Pro 840 250GB. Is there a Driver for Intel Gigabit 82579LM Network LAN for MacOS High Sierra?
    • This is my very first post and have looked around the forums to my question but I wasn't able to find the exact specifics that I need. This is my very first windows/mac dual boot project. I chose to attempt high sierra and I hope I am posting in the correct area. High Sierra seemed to be the newest that is possibly more stable than Mojave so I chose that. I'm reaching out to the more advanced builders and experienced people. I'm currently running Win 10 as of now and bought a separate SSD to install a macOS on. Before I invest time and energy into this. I'm wanting to get the best recommendations on what OS I should choose , if my hardware will be up for the task and my best plan of attack. I'll be honest I'm not ready to bang my head on the keyboard for hours. I've been there and done that.  My hardware was some of the best at its time in 2011 and I'm not 100% confident it will work with a more up to date macOS I'm also concerned about drivers for my GPU.  All input is welcomed   Here are my current specs:   CPU
          Intel Core i7 2600 @ 3.40GHz    28 °C
          Sandy Bridge 32nm Technology
