Triple OS setup?
« on: October 21, 2018, 05:05:19 am »
Hey there,

Just wondering if anyone has tried the following triple boot setup; ArcaOS, Linux, and Haiku OS?

Any tips or things to watch out for?

Should work. Make sure you do all partitioning with OS/2 tools and use Airboot to boot.
Linux grub needs to be installed in /boot or / rather then the MBR. No experience with Haiku but I believe it was designed to co-exist with other OSes. Once again best not to let it touch the MBR if possible.
The important things are cylinder alignment that OS/2 is picky about and not losing the LVM info that OS/2 writes in MBR and its partitions.

edit: Let us know how it goes and ask if having problems or need more info.
