    Just wanted to tell you all about my newfound success lol, I just finished installing Ubuntu on my acer aspire 5516 with an upgraded AMD Turion x2 processor, I now have Ubuntu 11.1, Windows 8, and Mac OSX Snow leopard 10.6.8 (Not lion yet amd isn't supported yet sadly) SNow leopard was the hardest one but I got it to work thanks to Nawcom and his Mod CD

    Since apparently People want me to make a tutorial here it is.

    What you need:

    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    Mac OSX Snow Leopard
    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    Windows 8

    Ubuntu 11.

    Warning: Spoilers inside!



    Now to boot mac osx
    1. insert the usb with the mod cd on it and boot it
    2. Select the mac osx partition
    3. That will boot Mac Snow Leopard

    To boot windows 8
    1.Just boot your HDD normally
    2. at the purple menu select Windows recovery (something like that)
    3.That will boot into windows 8

    To boot Ubuntu
    1. Boot your HDD normally
    2.Select Ubuntu
    3. If it only loads to a desktop with nothing else after you enter your password then boot with ubuntu recovery
    4. DONE



    Oh god that was a lot of typing , never want to do that again . Anyways Nawcom's mod cd and mac will be the main issue for everyone the nawcom cd loads a bunch of drivers so it supports many users , People with Intel Processors have a better sucess rate then AMD as usual and owners of a 6 core AMD Phenom may have issues , if you have a phenom and it doesn't work then you have to wat for a new nawcom cd to come out with a new legacy kernel loaded.

    IIRC The issue a while back was that AMD processors didn't support the instruction set needed, but that's not really an issue with modern newer AMD models, OSX versions, and mods.

    Install Windows to internal HD. Have a partitioned ext HD and install Ubuntu to one partition and OS X to another. Yay, triple boot. :yay:

    I would add the spoilers, but it's better if you do so yourself, so they're formatted precisely the way you want. exangel has left some good instruction here.
    Title edited.
