    Windows was installed that way. In fact, it was pre-installed on the laptop.

That's how I do my system with 2 HDD's and three OS's (one time five: LINUX Mint+Win 8+Win 7 Ult, Linux Ubuntu+Win 7 HP). No problems at all!
    What benefit is there to having more than two OS's installed?

    I could see Linux + Windows, or Win Server + Win 8, but five?!?!

    Gee-willickers, Zygoman!!!

    Sometimes a man needs more...it impressed you, didn't it.
    Actually, I had multiple different LINUX distros installed, because some programs that I use are pretty much Ubuntu only, and I was trying out other distros as well to see how they performed. The configuration that I listed was only one of several iterations. Actually, I've since cut it back...to three (Win 7 HP+Ubuntu with Linux Mint on the other drive). However, I now have more VMs running since that's actually more convenient.
    I am disturbed because I cannot break my system...found out there were others trying to cope! We have a support group on here, if your system will not break, please join!

    Maybe impressed is a strong word. I think I was more amused by the excess - like a guy in the 90's building a box with 1 TB just to do it.

    I'm joking, actually, that would've been awesome - I'm doing well enough just being versed in one OS at a time.

    I really only had two OS types, just Windows and LINUX. I can't use Mac OS X at all (not that it's a loss, really).
