    Hi! I have finally succeded to tripleboot my G750 JH with Linux Mint (which is based entirely on Ubuntu) and Linux Manjaro.
    Weeks of painful trial are over!
    I did like this:
    1. Created partitions one for Mint one for Manjaro on the SSD disk after shrink of Windows partition and deletion of the 20 GB Windows recovery
    partition at the end of the SSD which was instead copied to an recovery USB with ASUS BAcktrack.
    2. Started computer with F2 kept pressed until BIOSmeny appeared and put secure boot to disable and disabled fastboot in Windows
    3. Installed Manjaro on one of the partitions from a DVD. To start from the DVD I kept Esc pressed until boot menu appeared and
    chose UEFIDVD as boot option. I did NOT install any bootloader for Manjaro at all
    4. Then I started from a liveDVD with Mint. Started from the option UEFIDVD NOT the normal DVD option.
    5. Installed Mint in its partition and the bootloader, GRUB, in the EFI partition of the Windows installation. On my computer it was DEV/sdb1
    6. Restart. Now GRUB appears first and has Mint, Windows and Manjaro listed as boot choices. All work!

    Good luck!

    +rep, @Perlange. Thanks for sharing all the details. I might have to try Manjaro at some point - not familiar with it.
    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!

    Since the GRUB that Mint installed found the Manjaro the same method should work for any other distro or distros
    installed in the same way.
