I'm getting a replacement laptop tomorrow so I get to set it up from scratch. I want to triple-boot Win7, Win8 and Ubuntu (all 64-bit) and I can see several answers about this already, but I was wondering what the best install order is. I'm assuming it will be:
- Windows 7
- Windows 8
- Ubuntu 12.10
Has anyone tried this? Any reason I should change the order?
The other option would be to run Windows 8 from a VHD (see Scott Hanselman's blog post) but now it's been released I don't see much advantage to this.
Update: I tried this but ran into problems because MBR only supports a maximum of 4 primary partitions. If you're worried about this convert the drive to GPT before installing Windows 7.
