    Alas, my computer is ALMOST to the point where I can triple boot.

    Windows was installed using bootcamp on a 20GB partition on my SSD.
    Refit was then installed.
    Linux was then installed on a 10GB partition using disk utilities in OSX.

    (Their is additional partitions on the second hard drive for files for all operating systems since I was unable to do a triple boot with a OS on the second hard drive.)

    When trying to boot into Linux using refit, it hangs. When selecting Windows, I am brought to the GRUB screen and can boot into Linux or OSX but when Windows is selected it boots into Linux.

    From what I understand, if I can boot into Windows, I can use EasyBCD to fix the booting problem. But the question is... How the heck can I boot into Windows? When holding the alt/option key while booting the bootcamp partition shows up but when its selected it boots to grub and then instantly into Linux.

    Help!:(

    Not exactly a solution to your problem (more of a workaround), but could you virtualize one of the operating systems in OS X? Do you need to natively boot into all three?
