I haven't done this, but I've heard of folks doing it.

Here's one thread where someone claims to have got all three to work:

Then there's this guide to Windows on a Mac with some passing references to Linux and Ubuntu

And this blog claims to have found the way

You can search triple boot os x windows ubuntu and come up with a lot mor epages relevant to your research.

Good luck! Let us know if you get it working.

I can understand dual boot. Sometimes one OS does the job better then the other. I do it myself. But I can't see why one would want three?

I am sincere in this question, really.

He (or she) who dies with the most OSes on a single machine wins.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
