I have Mavericks bootcamp with windows 7 can I triple boot with Linux?
Be warned: Installing Linux on a mac is rather high difficulty and can cause disruptions in your system.
You can use an app called reFit to do this.
I installed windows and ubuntu on my macmini this way.
I recommend installing windows first, then linux.
Instructions are somehwere on the internet.
Again: Its rather tricky. Only do this if you really need to and know what you are doing.
What will have a bearing on this is the number of partitions you are currently using (including any recovery partition).
As you have already Bootcamped your system you are effectively limited to 4 partitions (without some manual tinkering). Without a BC partition (i.e. still GPT only) you could have as many partitions and OSes as you want.
Some Linux systems can be installed via EFI (like Ubuntu) though this can be a little more convoluted to do.
I would put it on my 2nd drive along side windows
Linux can be booted from external drives. You should be good.
Thats the best solution.
Depends on which method you are using to Boot. If you use EFI, I have no qualms with storing on the internal SSD.
Thanks for making me aware about the guidelines regarding installing Linux on mac..I'm just new for the application reFit although I'll try it.
