i have mac pro and i wanted to install debian on it but i guess i have problem now.

i have windows 7 installed on bootcamp partition, before i started installing linux, i created a partition size of 75 gb then i restarted mac and boot it from debian dvd. then i divided that 75 gb to 2 partitions, one is 600 mb freespace other is ext3 formatted.

i installed debian (but it just used 1 dvd even though i got 5 dvd downloaded) then mac restarted.

but now i cannot even see windows on bootlist. it just let me boot in mac os x now. how can i fix this?



You'll need to use something like rEFIt to triple boot.

  • i installed it now, but nothing happens on startup, i cant start windows or linux, just mac os starts – Utku Dalmaz May 7 '10 at 12:12
  • If there is nothing of value on the Windows partition, it'd be best to wipe that and start over..This link nay help : lifehacker.com.au/2010/05/… – CaseyIT May 7 '10 at 14:02

Give VMWare Fusion 3 a try. Although Debian is not formally supported, this article explains how to set it up.
