I see several articles on internet for triple boot but none address following issues. Which machine to buy to start? Should one buy a PC/Windows 8 machine (comes with Windows 8 recovery disks - not full Windows 8) OR buy Macbook Pro with MacOS X mountain lion? Since windows 7 onwards, one gets ONLY recovery disks and NOT full Windows OS. Windows XP PCs used to get full distribution. Same is true for MacOS which can not be moved to another machine. Which boot loader to use? i.e. rEFlt or Gnu Grub (2) or Apple bootcamp? Which disk partition util to use : gparted/gptsync/windows disk util? Then I need step by step steps to start building triple boot. Assuming starting from Windows 8 PC or Macbook Pro laptop. Thanks.
