Triple boot windows 8, ubuntu and android on PC

Actually I have long time wanted to post how to create a triple boot between windows 8, ubuntu linux and android x86. How to dual boot or triple boot you can wear is in fact not a difficult thing you can do on your computer properly. But here I give to already know the operating system installer.
triple boot operating system
Here are the steps to make your computer can use windows 8, ubuntu and android:
1. Create a partition into several sections, for windows 8 and android can be united without change, but for ubuntu to be installed on a separate partition.
Note: to install ubuntu operating system used capacity is about 3.5 gb for windows 8 about 10gb more and for android approximately 600MB. But you have to make partition more than that due in part to install multiple applications required.
2. Download the required operating system all for free.
  • Windows 8 download here
  • Linux ubuntu 12:10 here
  • Android x86 here
But I use windows 8 in different version from being downloaded, or if you already have all three of its operating system straight into the next step.
3. For the first I install Windows 8 into pc / computer with no cd or usb flash drive, if you have a cd install windows 8 with cd and can directly to the second drive, or drive D or you can install it to the first drive or drive C:. Follow all the steps involved when installing windows 8. Once the installation is finished and completed all the configuration settings, perform the next step.
4. Restart the computer and install ubuntu on drive C or drive the first or whatever drive do you want install it, for those who ever install ubuntu may be very easy, configure the settings as needed, then there’ll will get some choice about windows 8 documents to import data into ubuntu, if you want to import data please tick the box parts, if not leave it blank.
5. When you have finished making install ubuntu, reboot then at the first look at boot grub2 there will be display for you to choose a system that will be used. If Windows 8 does not exist on the options add in grub2.
Go to the terminal and type the following command:
sudo gedit / boot / grub / grub.cfg “enter”
Search # # # END / etc/grub.d/30_os-prober # # # Copy and paste the text below before writing the above. or just add this below ubuntu OS
### BEGIN /etc/grub.d/30_os-prober ###
menuentry “Windows 8 Recovery Environment (loader) (on /dev/sda6)” –class windows –class os {
insmod part_msdos insmod ntfs set root=’(hd0,msdos6)‘ search –no-floppy –fs-uuid –set=root AEC2F742C2F70D79 drivemap -s (hd0) ${root} chainloader +1
Edit the red text (hd0, msdos6) according to the partition windows is installed. eg windows 8 installed on partition 2 then replace with (hd0, msdos2).
6. The next step involves installing android-x86 on pc or computer.
  • Burn Android-x86 iso that has been downloaded into the hard drive or usb.
  • Restart the computer go into bios to press the delete key or F2. select the bios setting and select the first boot to usb, Save and restart, or in some cpu available directly from the keyboard to select click F9 or F11 to select the boot menu when the computer restart.
  • The first boot will look like this:
  • install android in pc booting
  • Select the bottom part of the install android
  • Select the partition to be used
  • partition android in pc
  • If you want to format the partition on the hard drive then select the format specified in accordance with the wishes of existing ext3, ext2, ntfs and fat32 and data will be lost on that partition. If you don’t want formatted it’s okay.
  • android in pc
  • Choose skip to not install grub.
  • grub in android pc
  • In this section select yes.
  • android in computer
  • Installation is running.
  • install android in pc
  • After the installation can choose to run android directly or reboot first.
If after the restart there was no option to enter the boot menu to android then go into ubuntu and open the terminal. Add text below into grub2 by typing “gedit / boot / grub / grub.cfg” interminal without quotes.

menuentry “Android-x86 4.0 RC2″ – class android – class linux – class os {
set root = ‘(hd0, 7)’
linux / android-4.0-RC2/kernel root /dev/ram0 androidboot.hardware=eeepc quiet vga=788 dpi=120 i915.powersave i915downclock=1=1=2 usbcore.autosuspend SRC=/ android-4.0-RC2 /
initrd /android-4.0-RC2/initrd.img
menuentry “Android-x86 4.0 RC2 debug mode” – class android – class linux – class os {
set root = ‘(hd0, 7)’
linux / android-4.0-RC2/kernel root=/dev/ram0 androidboot.hardware=eeepc quiet vga=788 dpi=120 i915.powersave i915downclock=1=1=2usbcore.autosuspend SRC=/android-4.0-RC2 /
initrd /android-4.0-RC2/initrd.img
replace hd0, 7 with partitions are used as partitions if android OS used is sda3 then replace with hd0, 3.
