    More than dual boot

    Hi, this has been recently asked and self solved, with no solution given.

    Does anyone have info on making my machines say triple or quad boot. I have sufficient disk to create the required partitions, but I start to reach my limits with grub editing, especially now that the actual grub source has a comment at the top saying don't edit this directly it is generated from rules.

    Booting multiple operating systems should be possible up to the point you run out of partitions ... you can edit config files manually if you want but the suggestion is usually to use the recommended version of updating the boot loader

    for grub2
    grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg
    will do the update of the config file for you
