I need to try out Win 8 and learn it, and I want to triple boot it (because I'm only going to use it when I have to) with Ubuntu and Windows 7 already installed.
The current boot loader is Windows' boot loader and I want to keep it that way. Whether it is Windows 8 or 7's boot loader doesn't matter, but I want to be able to boot all three with Windows 7 as default.
I also want to use an external drive for Windows 8. (It's connected through USB.)
Can I keep/use any of the loaders that Windows has and be able to link them all together, when Windows 8 is on an external drive which is connected through USB? If it works, but is slow or otherwise suboptimal, that's fine.
I read another post about this before asking but since I have a short supply of primary partitions I'm willing to format to convert to logical I wanted to specify my question a bit.
