Multi-Booting the Solaris 10 OS, Linux, and Microsoft Windows on a Laptop

Filed under
HowTos

As an intern working for Sun Microsystems, one of my first projects was to configure my laptop to multi-boot the Solaris Operating System, Linux, and Microsoft Windows. It sounded very exciting but daunting. However, as I went along, it proved to be a fairly easy exercise. These are the steps it takes to configure a system for multi-boot:

1. Ensure the system meets the minimum hardware and disk space requirements.
2. Obtain the media (CD/DVD) for the partitioning software and the operating systems.
3. Back up the system.
4. Decide how to partition the disk.
5. Install Microsoft Windows.
6. Install partitioning software, and partition the disk.
7. Install Linux.
8. Install the Solaris 10 OS for x86 platforms.
9. Set up access to all three operating systems.
