i just recently performed a clean install of windows 7 in my asus g750js, and while i was having so much fun playing i realize that i can try installing win 8 and linux as well.

i leave this screenshots just for people to know that in deed, the g750js its a great rig and can be usefull for more things than just gaming.

FYI: i use win7 for games, win8 for work and ubuntu for messing around :D

skajuan, congrats on the Triple boot on your G750JS :)

Can you please put together detailed installation instructions for the Triple boot? And, what you need to do for each OS to bring it up to date for drivers - repos - and config tweaks to get it all working?

Also, you now have more than 5 posts so you can upload images to the Asus Forum, which is a good idea as over the long term external hosted files and images tend to disappear.

thanks for the information i didn't know about the five post rule but its great to hear that now i can upload images directly.

it will be a pleasure to post a new thread detailing all the steps to achieve the triple boot, just need to gather all the information, but before anything, i must say that the credits go for an user on maxgeeks forums, it will be a problem if a give an outside link of asus rog forums?

thanks for the congrats :D

skajuan, it is always good to cite the originator of a method, and even providing a link is nice, but making the content local - listing the steps and images here, might be longer lasting.

You can always email the original poster and ask if you can repost the steps here.

Likely as not you probably came up with your own steps outside the steps he provided, so please do add those steps / items in sequence as you found them to be fixed.

I usually have a single host OS and boot up VM Guests of other OS's - so far that is working for me on the JH - all my games are working on Windows 8.1 with performance numbers the same or better than others on Windows - so I am happy with the single boot, but I know others would like to make a triple boot for themselves, so it will be a welcome post :)

Thanks skajuan!
