Running OS X Leopard on an MSI Wind is old hat. But triple booting OS X, Windows XP and Vista? That’s something I hadn’t seen before. So here’s a video from seamonkey showing all three operating systems living side by side:

It’s worth keeping in mind that this is an upgraded unit with a 250GB hard drive and a voided warranty. The version of Windows XP has also been nLited, which means some programs or processes may have been stripped away, resulting in faster boot times.

But overall all three operating systems load surprisingly quickly and seem to work pretty well with 1GB of RAM and an Intel Atom CPU. OS X doesn’t recognize the WLAN card, but you can buy a USB WiFi adaptor that should work. Seamonkey recommends the ASUS WL-167g.

  1. If there is a contest to see who can break the most EULAs on a single PC, this must be the current champion.
