Triple Boot MacBook Pro

Running Mac OS X, Windows Vista x64 and Windows Server 2008 x64 on a MacBook Pro.

This article series details a process for installing Mac OS X, Windows Vista x64 and Windows Server 2008 x64 on a MacBook Pro with complete driver support. While it is not the only way to setup such a system, this approach minimises the configuration necessary and avoids shell commands, and the need for third party boot loader utilities.

The scenario this approach is intended to address is as follows:

  • Primary OS for day to day use – Windows Vista Ultimate x64 Service Pack 1
  • Secondary OS for “experimentation” (and a possible future “switch” :) ) – Mac OS X Leopard 10.5.2
  • Third OS for presentation or demo use – Windows Server 2008 x64

Special thanks to my buddy and fellow SharePoint junkie, Andrew Connell who helped review the article and threw around the initial idea with me.
