I love to run different OSs in my 13" Retina MacBookPro. If I can install Windows/Linux/OSX on the Apple TimeCapsule and can Boot them over network wirelessly It will be awesome. If its possible please let me know how to do that. I will go and get one TimeCapsule.

If https://discussions.apple.com/thread/3816843?start=0&tstart=0 is the solution, Please elaborate it.


Apple TimeCapsule doesn't offer netboot/netinstall services. None of the essential requirements for such services like NFS (Linux/OS X), http(s) (OS X) or tftp (Linux/Windows) run on the Time Capsule.

You need Mac OS X Server, a NAS/Linux server or a Windows Server (I think some pimped Windows Client OSs will do it also) to accomplish this.

  • Shall I go with Linux Server? – Necktwi Aug 8 '15 at 9:54
  • I would go Linux, yes: netboot/netinstall of Linux in Linux is trivial, OS X and Windows. But I don't know if it's possible to netboot a MacBook (Pro) to Linux/Windows. Probably you have to search here for q/a or ask a second question. – klanomath Aug 8 '15 at 10:04
