I've got a strange situation. I must install two windows 8.1 systems and one linux (for example Debian) on one machine (one disk). I know that there is a huge amount of information about it on the internet, but none of them talk about two copies of Windows 8.1.
What I want to have?
- Windows 8.1
- Windows 8.1
- Linux (for example Debian)
- One boot manager (best GRUB, worse M$ boot manager).
- Three operating systems list to decide which one to run
What doesn't matter
- Speed of booting (UEFI or not, I just don't care). Microsoft &^%*$& systems are here only for some specific microsoft programs, and Linux will be used for 99% of time (24 hours a day, without powering off :P)
What I've tried so far?
- I installed two windows (windows installed its own boot manager with two choices (windows, windows)).
- After that I installed Linux and grub into /dev/sda MBR and I've got three systems, but also two boot managers. When I select Windows on grub, it relods windows manager and then I must decide which windows to run. And if I decide which windows, sometimes the system reboots (UEFI) and I must select WIndows once more from GRUB. This is a little blured, but I hope you understand the problem.
I thought about installing one Windows. Make it partition hidden. Install second one (so it possibly don't know about the first one, and install boot manager once more???). Then unhide partitions, and install Linux with grub in MBR, and manually enter windows options. But I'm not sure if this will work.
Any help will be appreciated.
PS. I'm a gentoo user, so I love terminal (no problem about manual configuring). Also the answer can be really a sketch of solution. As I'm searching only for idea. Hope everything is clear, if not please ask questions in comments. Thanks for your time!
