AmigaOne - Dual Booting

One of the fascinating aspects of the AmigaOne is that it can support at least 3 Operating systems - AmigaOS, Linux and MacOS running under Linux. The purpose of this section is to describe the setup and installation required in order to dual boot AmigaOS and Linux, either from the same hard disk or different hard disks, and at boot time switch between them as required.

Debian is the only version of Linux that supports installation on the same hard drive as AmigaOS 4.0 at present.

SuSE and Yellow Dog Linux must be installed to a different hard drive from AmigaOS 4.0. MacOS in installed on the Linux hard drive either within the root partition, or on a separate Linux partition.
