    Unhappy installing more than 3 operating system

    hi every one i am new to this forum and also this is my first post to this forum,so if there is some mistake or stupidity in my post please forgive me.
    Actually i am stuck in strange problem,i want to install more than 3 operating system om my laptop,but i have heard that you need primary part ion on your disk to install operating system onto,but problem arise here only actually we can made max 3 primary and one extended partion,
    so if i use 3rd party boot loader for it,but what about partion?
    actually iam interested in installing window vista,ubuntu Linux,backtrack3 and solaris.

    so any solution to this problem?

    have you thought about just virtualizing? seems like you would be going through a lot of trouble just getting everything set up.

    I have had 5 OS's on my laptop at one time. But the key to this is planning your partitioning for all your OS's before you even install one because you will come to this problem.

    I thought the max primary partitions was 4 but anyways you have to delete 1 and then add in a Logical partition from there you can add more than 3 (4?) partitions by adding them INSIDE the logical partition. I don't know what you are using to partition but GParted does this just fine!

    This tutorial is for triple booting ubuntu/vista/bt.
    It should provide enough resources to help get you started.
    As for partitions and multi-booting read here to gather more info.
    Let us know how you get on.
    To be successful here you should read all of the following.

    Failure to do so will probably get your threads deleted or worse.
