Hi,

saikee post #14 in 4 primary partitions limitation should be helpful.

If you look at saikee's sig you will find: A Grub menu booting 100+ systems & A "Howto" to install and boot 145 systems

Above information can be found via LQ
Search.

FYI: I suggest that you look at 'How to Ask Questions the Smart Way' so in the future your queries provide information that will aid us in diagnosis of the problem or query.

Some people use this.

There have been boot managers for decades. Grub and others can also chainload.

Both posts cover the same subject. If you can dual boot then it's just the matter of using the proper layout and chaining. Please look at saikee's links.

Enough said!
